Re: Olivia Newton-John gone

She had been battling breast cancer for years. One of the few who made both the charts and the big screen. 

Oddly enough, despite all her hits, I think my favorite was her very first and perhaps most obscure - a cover of Bob Dylan's "If Not For You."

From Billboard Magazine:

Re: Olivia Newton-John gone

I am truly saddened by her passing.  I've had a "crush" on her since I saw her picture on her first LP, "If Not For You"!   I always enjoyed singing along with her bass singer on the hits "Let Me Be There", "If You Love Me (Let Me Know )" and her #94 hit (my favorite) from 10/71 "Banks Of The Ohio".  Thanks Olivia for all the music, the movies and the memories.
