Before we start making fun of John Travolta, let’s remember that he does a lot of charity work, recently donating money and supplies to Hurricane Sandy relief, and he’s been known to fly planeloads of supplies to disaster areas like Haiti and Hurricane Katrina. That he’s doing a Christmas Album with his old Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John might just be him being a good guy helping an old friend make some easy money. Or he just really likes to sing and dance. Probably a combination of both. (He also made a music video with his daughter once upon a time.)
Anyway, blah blah blah, me talking. Below you can watch John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in their video for “I Think You Might Like It,” of their upcoming album, This Christmas, which I’ve helpfully giffed for you above. You know what, song title? You thought right, I do like it. It’s a sweet little slice of pie about the joys of seeing old friends and wearing black t-shirts. They’re comfortable and slimming. Enjoy.
On my holiday songs playlist, this ranks somewhere between Nicole Westbrook’s “Thanksgiving” and Nerf Herder (that’s Parry Gripp’s band) doing “I’ve Got a Boner for Christmas.” I’ll just go ahead and let you make the obvious Travolta joke there.
