Barry Manilow (born June 17, 1943) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, arranger, producer and conductor, best known for such recordings as "I Write the Songs", "Mandy", "Weekend in New England" and "Copacabana". Manilow's achievements include sales of more than 76 million records worldwide. In 1978, five of his albums were on the best-selling charts simultaneously, a feat equalled only by Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and Johnny Mathis. He has recorded a string of Billboard hit singles and multi-platinum albums that have resulted in his being named Radio & Records number one Adult Contemporary artist and winning three straight American Music Awards for Favourite Pop/Rock Male Artist. Several well-known entertainers have given Manilow their "stamp of approval," including Sinatra, who was quoted in the 1970s regarding Manilow, "He's next." In 1988, Bob Dylan stopped Manilow at a party, hugged him and said, "Don't stop what you're doing, man. We're all inspired by you." Arsenio Hall cited Manilow as a favourite guest on The Arsenio Hall Show and admonished his audience to respect him for his work.

LYRICS:
I remember all my life rainin' down as cold as ice
Shadows of a man
a face through a window
Cryin' in the night
the night goes into morning.
Just another day

happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes I see a memory
I never realized how happy you made me.
Oh Mandy
well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away
oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today
oh Mandy.
I'm standing on the edge of time
I've walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of up-hill climbing
The tears are in my mind and nothing is rhyming.
Oh Mandy
well you came and you gave without taking
Yesterday's a dream-l face the morning
Crying on a breeze
the pain is calling
Oh Mandy
well you came and you gave without taking

All my life growing up Barry was my fan, he is why my name is Mandee.. My Father took me to one of his concerts back when I was 6 I was so in AWWW, I couldn't believe I got to meet him, got to go on stage and have Barry sing this exact song to me.. One of my most favorite days of all time, I will never forget the look in my dads eyes when he told me he was going to bring me to a Barry Manilow concert, he was one happy Dad.. Love you Dad <3

poor barry having to live a falsehood im sure he wasnt cool with for all those years. the question is would he have been as famous being openly gay? this guy was huge when i was a kid and i dont remember any men openly stating their love of ole barry lol. he had legions of female fans who im sure had no idea he was gay. they would listen to this song and have girly daydreams about being mandy. probably not as big a hit if it was called randy lol
