Reception

The megamix featured the three biggest hits from the Grease soundtrack: "You're the One That I Want", "Greased Lightnin'" and "Summer Nights".

The song peaked at number 1 in Australia and remained there for 5 weeks in May 1991. It was the third highest selling single there in 1991. [1]

Legacy

The megamix re-emerged for the 20th Anniversary celebrations of the Grease movie in 1998. The Grease - The Remix EP featured the megamix and a remix of "You're the One That I Want", and charted at number 4 in the UK and number 27 in Australia. In 2006, after significant customer demand; Sunfly Karaoke added the megamix to their 'Most Wanted' series of karaoke discs. The karaoke version was constructed much the same way the original had been, utilizing the company's existing karaoke productions of the three component tracks.
