Barry Manilow

Barry Manilow

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Barry Manilow was a soft rock artist who came to fame in the 70s after teaming up with Bette Midler as her music director, arranger and pianist.

Barry became internationally famous as a solo artist and has sold millions of records over three decades. And apparently he is still performing and touring today.

    A good mate of mine (Mandy) was named after his song, which was apparently originally written for his dog (Sandy). Not sure how true that is though.

    My best friend at school loved Barry Manilow, she spent all day outside the Hilton when he was staying there, but she didn't see him. I passed it on the way home the following day and nearly walked into him. My one brush with fame! My friend was furious that it had been me. And now I'm older, I do like some of the songs, and I heard them so much back then, I know lots of the words.

    I see no one had the guts to admit they like Barry Manilow. It the seventies and eighties he had some great tunes. "At the Coppa, Coppacabanna" See now that's playing over and over in your head. My favorite song would have to be his version of "American Bandstand" It was a great tune before he added words, then it got even better.
