Barry Manilow has released a few albums in the past with him redoing classics, and he has also done one of all duets with some friends who are also famous singers. Well on October 27th he is doing something he has never done before, he is releasing a duets album where they sing some legendary songs together. Wait, he’s done that before? So how is My Dream Duets different than those other ones? All the singers he is singing with on it have passed on. That’s pretty different.
He dreamed a little dream and now he gets to sing with the likes of The Mamas & The Papas’ Mama Cass.
Although John Denver and him have sung together in the past, it is not something that he can’t do now. That is until this album and you will hear them belt out one last duet together.
Before Manilow was as well known as he is known now, an icon passed away and he wasn’t able to sing with her. Now, Judy Garland makes his heartstrings go zing as his somewhere over the rainbow finally happens.
The tune I am most looking forward to is the one where he makes sweet music with Sammy Davis Jr. The two men will put a smile on our face the way only a Candyman can.
I have a feeling this album is not only a dream for him, that is will also be a dream come true for us too. If you want to order, My Dream Duets it is available on Amazon pre-order now.

The Monster Circus is in Vegas and Barry Manilow stopped by to wish them luck during their opening weekend. I don't know about you, but it is really weird to see Barry Manilow with all these hjair band rockers. He just so looks like the odd man out.
I am going to have nightmares from those pictures of Barry Manilow. He needs to hire a new lighting guy that won't ever mix whatever color light that was with Barry's fake orange tan again. Because the color that radiates off of him is the color of what I feel like doing. So ewwww.

So Sharon Stone was speaking at some event last night called the Billie Awards and she made a low blow dig towards Barry Manilow. According to Planet Hollywood she was auctioning off tickets to Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball and was listing all the celebs who have attended in the past. When a picture came up of Rod Stewart she said, "sometimes comes in a kilt and no underpants, which I have to say I liked—kind of a lot!" But when it came to Barry Manilow she had this to say, "Oh, look! That was after the third face lift…I mean, hip replacement." Ouch and ironic because she has had how many plastic surgeries? I have to admit it is kind of funny. Neither Planet Hollywood or a friend of his considered it a laughing matter, "That’s a shame that she would stoop so low," the friend said. "It certainly shows her own true colors." True colors and I say plastic surgeries!
