This is a big song in the musical Grease, which was popularized by the 1978 movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as the main characters, Sandy and Danny. The song finds the pair singing about their summer romance, with each having a completely different perspective on what really happened. Danny sings his part to his greaser friends the T-Birds, and implies that it was a sexual relationship.

This was written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, who composed the musical Grease.
