"Grease" is the word

There's something about "Grease," at least for the romantic. It's a story as old as time: Girl meets boy. Girl loses boy. Girl gets boy back via makeup, hair products, tight clothes and high heels.

It's kind of like Romeo and Juliet, except instead of drinking poison because his true love appears to be dead, Romeo is bummed that she's a prude in a poodle skirt, so he goes drag racing and listens to advice from friends who are, it seems, even stupider than he is.

In any case, the '50s seem to continue to hold a weird fascination as the last time that anyone believed life was simple or that anyone was playing by the rules. And pop-culture cred of the 1978 film and 1971 theatrical musical continues, with revivals and tours and even songs featured on "Glee."

Why this walk down memory lane?

The City of Lacey is featuring a sing-along version of the 1978 film as part of its free summer movie series. That means there'll be words on screen - not that I'd need them, because I know every word. The film screens Saturday, July 23 at dusk.

Ready? Here goes:

"I got chills, they're multiplyin', and I'm losin' control, ‘cause the power you're supplyin', it's electrifyin'."
