"Weekend in New England" is a song written by Randy Edelman, and released by Barry Manilow on his 1976 album This One's For You. The song was released as a single in 1976, reaching the #1 spot on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart and #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is a classic example of Manilow's popular style of big ballad, including a romantic theme, swelling orchestration and a dramatic finish. Manilow's version is quite unique for 1970s radio singles as the exact title is never mentioned in the song. The only reference to the title is the line, "Time in New England took me away...", and the word "weekend" is never mentioned at all.

The Reba McEntire song, "Whoever's in New England," is seen by many as an answer song to "Weekend In New England", as sung by the wife of a philandering husband who has an ongoing affair with someone in New England.

This song was also recorded by John Barrowman on his 2007 album Another Side.

Cool Pins

Are fond of collecting lapel pins? During my high school days, almost all of my classmates are collecting such cool accessories including custom pins. We usually pin it in our bag (mostly in the strip). If you are confident enough, you can also place it on your cap. There are different kinds of pins. Most of my classmates were buying pin with their names printed on it while others are having fun with pins with cartoon designs.
You can also collect these pins especially those who are quite expensive or those that came from the other countries. Every time my Uncle will visit us from abroad, he usually buys us some cool pins to be added in my collection. I sued to buy pins online and recently, I found a very cool collection of Australian lapel pins. They look so perfect and I want to add them in my pins collection.
Aside from being a collection item, these pins can also be used effectively for promotional marketing. Just like what happen in the recently held 2010 Election here in the Philippines where a lot of Politicians are giving these pins away to encourage everyone to vote for them. Nice strategy isn’t? They can also be used in any form of advertisement, wither you are promoting for a certain product or a newly open establishments.

The record earned for Manilow his first (and only, to date) Grammy Award in February 1979 and his first gold single for a song he composed. The song's title refers to the famous New York City night club, the Copacabana, and tells the story of Lola, a showgirl, and her lover Tony, a bartender at the club. Shirley Bassey also covered the song in 1979, on the double A-side single "This Is My Life". This song is played as a cassette tape by the penguins in the movie Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

"I Write the Songs" is a popular song by Barry Manilow from 1975 written by Bruce Johnston. Manilow's version reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1976 after spending two weeks atop the Billboard adult contemporary chart in December 1975. It won a Grammy Award for Song of the Year and was nominated for Record of the Year in 1977 and became one of Manilow's signature songs. Manilow was initially reluctant to record the song, stating in his autobiography Sweet Life: "The problem with the song was that if you didn't listen carefully to the lyric, you would think that the singer was singing about himself. It could be misinterpreted as a monumental ego trip." After persuasion by Clive Davis, then president of Arista Records, Manilow relented and recorded the song, and his version of "I Write the Songs" was the first single taken from the album Tryin' to Get the Feeling. It first charted on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 15, 1975, reaching the top of the chart nine weeks later, on January 17, 1976. The song is also recorded by David Cassidy

Mandy ~ Barry Manilow

The original title of the song is Brandy. "Brandy" is a 1971 hit for songwriters Scott English and Richard Kerr. It reached number 12 in the UK Singles Charts, but the fast-tempo version was a flop in the United States. In 1974, recorded by Barry Manilow as "Mandy", the song was Manilow's first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Easy Listening charts, and his first gold single.The suggestion that Scott English wrote the song about a favorite dog is apparently an urban legend. English has said that a reporter called him early one morning asking who "Brandy" was, and an irritated English made up the "dog" story to get the reporter off his back.In the three years between English's 1971 recording and Manilow's, Looking Glass had a hit song with "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" in 1972. Therefore, to avoid confusion, when Manilow decided to make his record, he changed the title to "Mandy". It was Clive Davis who suggested that Manilow record the song. Manilow originally recorded it as an up-tempo bubblegum pop tune similar to English's original, but he and the producer reportedly hated the way it turned out; thus, he sang it as a ballad and was much more pleased with the results. It was Manilow's first hit single and the first song on Clive Davis' Arista Records label (formerly Bell Records) to hit the Billboard Hot 100.
