Happy Birthday Barry

There was a time in my life when I would listen to Barry only behind closed doors. I didn't think it was kewl to let it be known that I just feel good everytime I hear him sing. But as I've grown older and learned not to care about what the next person thinks, I feel it's time I come out of the closet. YES, I am a fan-ilow of the Manilow. It may make me very very gay but I just don't care anymore. I love Barry Manilow and I don't care who knows (just don't tell my mama).

I have to dance everytime I hear Copacabana. It is probably the catchiest song of all time. I mean how can you not like that one? Looks Like We Made It is just beautiful and inspirational. Daybreak makes me think about the movie Serial Mom and thats not a bad thought to have. You know what's funny about I Write the Songs? Barry didn't write that song. Okay maybe not funny to you but I chuckle a little when I think of that. As accomplished a song writer as Mr. Manilow is, one of his biggest hits is I Write the Songs and he didn't write that song. And who doesn't love the song Mandy?

There is one person that knew (before I went public) about my Barry crush. That was my bff Derrick. One day we were playing Marry, Date or Dump [if you've never played then get the game it's soooo much fun] with some friends. This card came up with the names Barry Manilow, Rod Stewart, and someone else that I can't remember. Derrick looked at me and started laughing. He was the only one in the room that pegged me perfectly on that card cause he knows me just a bit too well.
