"You're the One That I Want" is a song written by John Farrar for the 1978 film version of the musical Grease. It was performed by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

The single was a huge international hit, reaching no.1 in several countries. It was the only single from the Grease soundtrack to top both the US and UK pop charts.

It reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for one week in June 1978, where it was certified Platinum for shipments exceeding 2 million copies.

It also topped the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks in the summer of 1978 and, as of 2008, is still the sixth best-selling single ever in the U.K. where it has sold nearly 2 million copies.[5] A re-released version of the single reached #4 in the UK in 1998, the twentieth anniversary of the film's debut.

It is one of the best-selling singles of all time, having sold over 6 million copies in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and France alone.
