Barry Manilow was Bette Midler’s music arranger and provided music for her shows at the Continental Baths in NYC in the very early 70’s.  He also wrote jingles for State Farm Insurance (Like a Good Neighbor…), Pepsi, Band-Aid (I am stuck on Band-Aid….), Kentucky Fried Chicken and others.



Thought I’d share a Barry Manilow playlist from YouTube – enjoy your favorite Manilow tune as a toast to his “Coming Out”  😀  👍🏻  😉   🎹  🎶
