Remember NOT to stream.

I've never heard anything else by Manilow, but Copacabana, besides the cheesiness of the delivery and Manilow himself, is an inspired piece of songwriting.

You'd have to be one morose mofo not to fall for it.

Now rip me to shreds

"but that was 20 years ago, when there used to be a show"--CLASSIC

From a musical perspective it's a stunner, catchier than the common cold and beatifully arranged. Plus, kudos to Manilow for the tongue-in-cheek backing vocals ("Copacabana! Have a banana!").

one year passes...
Watching "An Evening With Barry Manilow" on BBC1... he's quite the showman, isn't he?

Anyway, yeah, classic.

A childhood fave, so, CLASSIC. Supposedly, Manilow had to revise this song a jillion times to please the A&R mooks at his label. They were concerned that the public wouldn't get the storyline.
