Totally Hot is an album by the singer Olivia Newton-John. Released in November 1978, following Newton-John’s global success in the film musical Grease, the album peaked at #7 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart.
Dressed on the cover all in leather, the album’s singles ˝A Little More Love˝ (No. 3 Pop, No. 94 Country, No. 4 AC), ˝Deeper Than The Night˝ (No. 11 Pop, No. 87 Country, No. 4 AC) and the title track (No. 52 Pop) all demonstrated a newer sound for Newton-John, who filmed promotional videos for all three singles.
She also wrote two of the album’s tracks, ˝Borrowed Time˝ and ˝Talk To Me˝. The album was certified platinum and its first single, ˝A Little More Love˝, was certified gold.
Although the album focused much less on Country than her earlier albums, it still reached No. 4 on the Country Albums chart.
While the ˝Totally Hot˝ single was targeted to Pop radio, its B-side, ˝Dancin’ ’Round And ’Round˝, was worked to Country (No. 29) as well as AC (No. 25) (this was the first time since her 1975 single, ˝Let It Shine/He Ain’t Heavy ... He’s My Brother˝, that Newton-John worked both sides of a single to different radio formats). ˝Dancin’ ’Round And ’Round˝ also charted Pop (No. 82) after ˝Totally Hot˝ finished its chart run.
The album was also a Top 10 success in Australia, Canada and Japan (although none of its singles charted in Japan).
The album reached no.30 in the UK (where it was also released as a limited edition picture disc), though the single ˝A Little More Love˝ was a big hit reaching no.4 on the UK Singles Chart.
