When picking a movie/musical to re-soundtrack for this contest, I decided simply to go with the movie/musical I know the best, which resulted in probably the most obvious choice in the world: GREASE! I love that silly, kitschy piece of crap movie, and I have ever since I first saw it at the age of six and developed a crush on Danny Zuko. So here is my reworking of the Grease soundtrack (re-ordered, because for some reason the soundtrack doesn't follow the order of the movie).

Track 7 from Rushmore Soundtrack
Length: 00:02:37
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Replaces: Love is a Many-Splendored Thing
The film opens to Danny and Sandy frolicking blissfully on the beach. The actual song playing is the very dramatic "Love is a Many-Splendored Thing." Chad and Jeremy's "Summer Song" turns down the drama and makes for a more sweet, intimate opening. Besides, it has been used with much success on soundtracks before.

Track 9 from Odessey & Oracle
Length: 00:02:08
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Replaces: Grease
During the opening credits, a cartoon sequence shows the various major characters getting ready for school while the disco track "Grease" plays. "This Will Be Our Year" describes pretty accurately, I think, how most people feel at the start of their senior year of high school.

Track 3 from Plans
Length: 00:03:16
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Replaces: Summer Nights
Sandy and Danny, unknowingly now attending the same high school, describe their summer love affair to their friends. It was tough finding a good replacement for the movie's money number, but "Summer Skin" is the most accurate depiction of summer love I've ever heard.

Track 8 from Get Awkward
Length: 00:02:27
Year: 2008
Track Description:
Replaces: Sandra Dee
"Good girl" Sandy is invited to a sleepover with the Pink Ladies. They make fun of her sweet and pure image while she's in the bathroom. "Bitches Leave" is one of Jemina Pearl's girly, bitchy numbers taking on a "perfect" rival: "you laugh and giggle like you haven't got a brain/the way you talk is driving me insane/i know you're lying 'bout you take it in the rear/you name drop so much i wanna rip off my ears."

The dancing really heats up and becomes organized. Instead of the hand-jive now all the kids are doing the Frug. (Fun fact: all of the dances mentioned in the song "the frug" were done in the movie "Troop Beverly Hills" which, of course, starred Jenny Lewis in her pre-teen pre-Rilo Kiley days)

Track Description:
Replaces: Sandy
Sandy leaves Danny stranded at the drive-in after he tries to cop a feel. Danny sings "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" because it allows him to describe his feelings for Sandy, while retaining his badass cool guy image, because Jack White's songs always sound badass and cool no matter what they're about.
