Born to hand-jive

So I'm going to see Grease on Broadway tonight, and I'm pretty stoked. Why, you might ask?

In case you didn't read my posts on The Televisionista about last year's smash hit with musical geeks everywhere, "Grease! You're the One That I Want" on ABC (read them here), I was cheering for Max and Laura all season long (and even voted an embarrassing amount of times to put them on Broadway). Playing casting director makes a trip to see the show irresistible. Plus, I saw their performance on the Tonys on Sunday, and it looks like they haven't let me down.

In the spirit of me seeing Grease tonight, what's your favorite Grease song? I have to admit that I watched this movie for most of my awkward junior high school years, where it undoubtedly instilled in me a questionable set of values (good-girl-turned-skank storylines are every mom's favorite) and a taste for fake '50s cheesey-pop and Australian accents. ("Tell me about it, stud!") For the record, my favorite is tied between "Summer Nights" and "Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee - Reprise."
