Trivia from original movie, the story of the "impossible" song...

The Bee Gees composed other songs for other well-known musicians, notably Frankie Valli's "Grease" from the film of the same name.

The producer invited Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees to write a song called "Grease" with an innovative idea concerning the meaning of the term "brilliant". Gib later disclosed that he offered the music to Vali for a specific reason.

In reality, After believing it was impossible, Barry Gibb wrote a song on genius. "Grease" started out as a Broadway musical. When it was adapted for the big screen, the directors inserted a new song called "Grease" for the opening titles. The origin of the song's composition began when "Grease" producer Roger Stigwood called Gibb.

- He asked me "if you would come up with a song called "Brilliant" - said Gib to Entertainment Weekly. - I said: "How do you write a song called "Grease"? I don't understand in which direction to even start. And Robert said, “Just Grease du-du-du-du-du, Grease du-du-du-du-du. So it wasn't very useful.

Gib figured out what to do though.

- I went to the pier and wandered around thinking: Well, brilliantine is symbolic of that period with the Greasers and all that - he revealed. - And that's really my time. My favorite time is the late 50s. And so it suddenly occurred to me to write about brilliant as a word, because that word represented time. That's how Grease became a word.
