I know what you’re thinking. Oh god, oh god, a Barry Manilow post, but I was offered the chance to post about his new album and the fact that it crept steadily into the top ten (not a new place for Mister Manilow) and could not pass up the option that was given to me by Manilow in Paris.
You see, I fell in love with Manilow because of the show Angel and the main character’s obsession with Barry’s ballads, and the way he just went to town everytime he got an option to sing them.
It’s honestly very little surprise to me that Barry Manilow’s “The Greatest Love Songs Of All Time” crept up at number 5, because let’s be honest– as much as you may roll your eyes at the thought of being a fan of the music, it very much is good. More shows have come to the forefront proclaiming their love for Manilow, whether joking or not, and it’s shot the man into even more love as of late than ever thought. Good job, Mister Manilow.
