  1. I am very old and remember Olivia Newton John in her heyday. Who knew she had made this proto-hipster track? Is it a remix? It is funny how distinctive voices are– in spite of the unusual context, I immediately knew it was the Aussie songbird of yore (by which I mean lavender aerobic outfits.) Thanks for these great mixes– they are golden. Let’s get physical!
