The Big B.M.

Happy Birthday, Barry Manilow!

It's always fun to mock Barry, but I think he's terrific, and have thought so ever since I was a wee lad.

There are many reasons I like him so much, notably "Mandy" (which I can sing in perfect pitch), "A Linda Song," and many others. I used to play his records over and over at my Nana's house and sing along to the lyrics that were printed on the LP sleeve.

About the time I was born, Barry was playing piano in the Continental Bath House for Miss Bette Midler - which I think is just about the coolest thing one could do.

Also cool? What this Danish person did to put a video together for Mandy.

And now, I'm off to Canada. See ya, America!
