"Copacabana" is a 1978 song, sung by Barry Manilow and written by Jack Feldman, Barry Manilow, and Bruce Sussman. It is also known as "Copacabana (At the Copa)". It debuted on Billboard magazine's Top 40 chart on July 7, 1978, and peaked at #8. It peaked at #42 in the UK the same year. A remixed version of the song peaked at #22 in 1993. 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.
