Last year when I featured this song, there would be no senior prom because of the pandemic. Now, things have changed. I recently read in our local newspaper that one of our high schools will have a senior prom this year. Hopefully, for many young people attending, this will be a memorable night, and I certainly hope that COVID numbers don’t go up as a result. Enjoy!
It recently occurred to me that because of the pandemic, there may not be a senior prom for many high school students. This came to mind while I was listening to the sound track from Grease, a movie that was popular in the 70’s when I was in high school. One of the songs on this album is the one I’m featuring today.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
