Besides Kylie Minogue, Olivia Newton John is perhaps the other Biggest pop diva from Australia (though she did start out country before her foray into pop in the 80s, thx to Grease). In an agree to disagree segment, Andy asked if Olivia's 1980 #1 hit (the second single ever to top the Hot 100 for 10 straight weeks) was the better song to be titled "Physical" against Dua Lipa's own single of the same name. Olivia obviously agreed as it's one of her best known and beloved songs and enjoyed a resurgence in popularity thx to a duet with Coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) on one of her few times she was given a musical performance (the other that's a stand out is Vogue) Wayans initially disagreed, but as we see he quickly changed his mind. The video for Olivia's Physical is what I describe gay soft adult lite. At the time, MTV asked her to censor it. Still to this day, I think back to a four year old me watching that video in 1988 - that had to be an early sign that I was really different as I found the video hot. I'll share it. Now I get why the video was controversial for it's time, the ending alluded that the men were gay and wanted to hook up with the one they were holding hands with.
