Barry Manilow turned 65 today.
Mention his name and certain thoughts, opinions, and images immediately come to mind.
Let's not get carried away here.
There are lots and lots and lots and lots of men who can't stand Barry Manilow.
When you think about it, Manilow gets criticized for the same things Lionel Ritchie did but never caught flak. But that's another issue.
But I'm telling you there are Barry Manilow fans, male Barry Manilow fans who are Barry Manilow fans and don't even know they're Barry Manilow fans.
Listen up guys.
Watch this next video.
The vocals are not synchronized all that great with the video but work with me, alright?
I guarantee guys (and ladies, of course you can play along, too) that you will watch this video........okay, turn away from the computer while it's on if you must........and you will hear the lyrics and you will hear the melodies to these Manilow compositions...
And yes, I guarantee that you will say, yeh.
I like that.
And you will know the music.
And you will know the words.
You might even sing along.
And you will have to admit.
