Comparison of two songs

Recommended Posts

Well, I hadn't heard that song before, but Barry has been 'inspired' by the classics in the past...Eric got there first on this one- was it Clive, was it Barry, or was it Memorex?

BTW, Eric must have taken all the steam out of this melody- the song was only on the charts for 2 weeks for Barry and only got as high as the 60's...

I´d never heard that Barry Manilow song until about 5 years ago. I discovered it and remember posting it here. I´ve since bought the album.  The song is up there as one of his very top gems, though obviously wasn´t played much in its day. I never noticed a similarity between it and NGFILA. Will have to listen again to see.

Update edit: Yeah, big time similarities in the chorus, but not a rip off, imo.

Another interesting take from the thread is one guy is trying to help Bernie listen to the song, giving him detailed instructions on how to find it etc.

Seems like only yesterday (the year 2000) but in technology years, it´s a lifetime ago.
