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.
You want to upgrade again?!!

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. Posted Image

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

Barry friggin' rules! "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....

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.

Well that didn't take long. That just shows you how popular Manilow is. I think there are a lot of closet Manilow fans out there. Posted Image

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. Posted Image

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...

Now why did you have to go and say that? Posted Image

I saw him on Larry King Live last week and he was playing short takes of a lot of his hits. Man, seeing him AND Larry King together, that's a sight to behold. I watched the entire hour even though I'm not a Barry Manilow fan, does that mean I'm a closet Barry Manilow fan? Posted Image

Seriously, I have to admit I need a Barry fix once in a while. My favorite song of his is "Could it be Magic," which is actually a pretty nice expansion of a Chopin theme.

The best thing about this thread is that I think it will lead to a lot of confessions. Posted Image

No- everything I listen to is immaculate. I have perfect taste in music. (yes, they'll believe that one, he says)

Besides, admitting to watching The View is worse than anything anybody can dish out!
