It may surprise you, but British born Olivia Newton-John has had an amazing career. She’s sold over 100 million records world wide making her one of the best selling artists of all time. She’s a four time grammy winner, with five #1 hot 100 singles and ten other top ten singles. She’s had two #1 albums, 14 gold record albums, eleven gold record singles as well as four platinum and four double platinum records. That’s an amazing record, but can you name her first hit record?
Olivia scored her first hit in 1971 with a Bob Dylan song, “If Not For You”. The song went to #25 on the hot 100, but as many of her songs did, it was #1 on the A/C chart. Today, like many of her great songs, it’s another forgotten oldie.
