Grease opened on February 14, 1972. Grease is about two high school teens named Sandy and Danny who happen to fall in love over the summer. The two didn't think that they would ever see each other again, until school started and they ran into one another at school. The whole musical revolves around the love between Sandy and Danny.

The main theme of this musical is love. The songs that I have the links to down below are all songs surrounding the theme of love. The song "Summer Nights" talks about falling in love over the summer. "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "Your the One That I Want" are songs that have been added to the movie version of the musical. So, there have been some additions to the movie versions of Broadway musicals. "Hopelessly Devoted to You" is when Sandy sings about hopelessly falling head-over heels for Danny. Then there's "Those Magic Changes" a song that describes the way the heart changes when you fall in love. As one can see love is prevalent in the musical Grease.
