Hopelessly Devoted To You
"Hopelessly Devoted to You" is a song written by John Farrar. It was originally performed by Olivia Newton-John in the film version of Grease. The song received an Oscar nomination as Best Original Song, losing to "Last Dance" from Thank God It's Friday at the 51st Academy Awards.
Halfway through shooting the movie, Newton-John's contractually-entitled vocal solo had yet to be written. Farrar, Newton-John's personal producer, wrote the song and submitted it to the film's production team. They were reluctant but then approved it; shooting and recording took place after the other parts of the film had been completed.
Newton-John performed the song at the 21st Grammy Awards. It reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 7 on the Easy Listening chart. On the country chart, "Hopelessly Devoted to You" peaked at number twenty and was her first top twenty country hit in two years. The song bears similarity to Cilla Black's 'I Only Live To Love You' (1967).
The song was not part of the original musical production (and was replaced with the 1950s standard "Since I Don't Have You" for the 1994 revival), but it was added to the score for the 2007 revival and was included in the 2016 Grease: Live performance, sung by Julianne Hough.
