Composed by John Farrar for the soundtrack of the film Grease. The song was written specifically for the film and was not part of the original stage production. John Farrar wrote the song halfway through the filming of Grease, when it was realised that Olivia’s contractually-entitled vocal solo had yet to be written. The recording took place after other parts of the film had been completed. ‘Hopelessly Devoted’ reached No.1 in Belgium, Canada, Ireland, Netherlands.
