    I did something last Friday that at one time, I thought I would never do. I bought a Barry Manilow CD. While shopping at Costco, I found the new Ultimate Manilow CD for $12.50 and decided, what the heck! "Ready To Take A Chance Again" brings back memories of seeing the old Goldie Hawn-Chevy Chase movie Foul Play on cable many times when I was a kid. Anyway, this CD is relaxing and is good for a laugh too. As for the sound quality, who cares?! It's just a fun CD. O.K. Start stoning me!

    Don't worry Keith, you're...

    Just one guy
    typing in the darkness
    all it takes is one guy
    typing so they read what's on your mind
    and when you surf around you'll find that
    there's more than one guy
    typing in the darkness.....


    NP: Take a wild guess.

    Hey, I think you should get a medal for having the courage to admitting to buying it. That's more than I could do.
    But buy an NSync CD and I will show you no sympathy whatsoever. [​IMG]

    "Time in New England" is still one of his best songs.

    I get all my Barry Manilow CD's, including "Ultimate Manilow", thru BMG Music Service to avoid the stoning.

    BTW, "Ultimate Manilow" was recently certified Platinum by RIAA. Which means a lot of stones will be needed for the stonings across this country....

    You know...I did the same thing about a few years ago with Barry's summer of '78 cd. I was so distressed a few weeks after I bought it that I wrote a song about it.

    Want to read it?

    Gere it goes.

    "I bought a Barry Manilow CD"
    Words and music by Zack Scott
    C 1997 8-track Productions music

    The world is going to end
    It's going to crash in the sun
    Every one is going to die
    and When It's all done
    They'll look in my C.D. Collection
    and in their pant's they'll pee
    Cause I just bought a Barry Manilow CD

    Don't know what was going in my head
    No no
    If people found out I'd be better off dead
    I like one song but I didn't think I'd buy it
    Now that I did I think I'll start a riot

    But In the end Barry will have the last laugh
    Cause probably my son would become a BArry Manilow fan

    I bought a Barry Manilow C.D.
    Oh woe is me
    I bought a Barry Manilow C.D.
    oh please kill me
    I bought a barry Manilow C.D.
    I'll do it
    I bought a Barry Manilow C.D.
    Oh god,



    Thank you thank you....please tip your waitress

    I appreciate the humorous responses from everyone. It really is a fun CD, and I'm glad I picked it up.

    Yes, there are a lot of Manilow fans- unfortunately, they're all middle aged women who also think Kenny G is a brilliant jazz musician. [​IMG]
    Once I caught Barry Manilow on The View (no, I don't remember how or why I stumbled upon The View, and it was the only time I saw it). Man, talk about an estrogen fest! I only watched two minutes, but I felt dirty afterwards.
    Nothing makes you feel like killing yourself more than getting Copacabana stuck in you head for 3 days straight...
