#AtoZ 1981 Songs to Remember – “P” is for “Physical”

I chose 1981 music as my theme this year. My newest novel The Summer of Princess Diana is set in the summer of 1981, and oh! the music! Let’s take a look back at a pivotal time in the music industry.

Are you ready for this? “Physical,” by Olivia Newton-John, was the lead single on her eleventh album, released in September 1981. The song was originally offered to Tina Turner, who declined it (but Tina had plenty of big hits). “Physical” was a huge success and spent ten weeks at #1 on the charts. The suggestive lyrics even caused it to be banned in some areas, but check out the video.

  1. Physical was one of my Zumba songs. Every time I hear it, I start doing the exercise dance. Guess I need to play it on repeat to keep me moving. Great choice. I’m sad that we’re nearing the end of the alphabet. Nice job, Miss Martha.
