Since when was this necessary?
Barry Manilow (or Barely ManEnough as I like to call him), one of the most prolific songwriters has launched into singing greatest hits of eras? To my shock and horror, I just saw a TV ad promoting the Greatest Songs of the 80's, where Barry is actually singing classic 80's anthems such as "Open Arms", "I Just Called to Say I Love You" and even "Islands in the Stream!" - what in the WORLD? Is he like Michael Jackson and hurting for money?
This is what you will enjoy...
"Barry Manilow now unveils his latest compilation: "The Greatest Songs of the 80's" adding his own unique flare to these all-time great classic songs. He breathes new life and vitality into these truly wonderful songs, bringing the great songs of a great era to a new generation."
By the way, he's also done the same for the 50's, 60's and 70's. EEK!
