Mandy (Cover Version of Barry Manilow)

Mandy is one of my competition song I used to sing when I was late teenager.  I did struggle to get minus track on those cassettes shops and managed get it on the tapes.  I learned to sing this song in bathroom on my own.  Today we are really enjoy all these new technology where I play it over my blue-tooth speaker from my handphone the karaoke version which was downloaded from youtube.  It is wonderful to enjoy singing with a backing track close to the original song.

"Mandy", originally titled "Brandy", is a song written and composed by Scott English and Richard Kerr.[1]

"Brandy" was a hit in 1971 for Scott English in the UK and in 1972 for Bunny Walters in New Zealand, but achieved greater success when covered in 1974 by Barry Manilow in the US, with the title changed to from "Brandy" to "Mandy" to avoid confusion with Looking Glass's "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)". His version reached the top of the US Hot 100 Singles Chart. Later on, it was recorded by many other artists. The song was a UK #1 hit in 2003 for Irish boyband Westlife.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Mandy", originally titled "Brandy", is a song written and composed by Scott English and Richard Kerr.[1]


"Brandy" was a hit in 1971 for Scott English in the UK and in 1972 for Bunny Walters in New Zealand, but achieved greater success when covered in 1974 by Barry Manilow in the US with the title changed to "Mandy" to avoid confusion with Looking Glass's "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)". His version reached the top of the US Hot 100 Singles Chart. Later on, it was recorded by many other artists. Irish boyband Westlife had a UK number one with their version in 2003.

In 1974, recorded by Barry Manilow under the title "Mandy", the song was Manilow's first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Easy Listening charts, and his first gold single.

In the three years between English's and Manilow's recordings, Looking Glass's "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" had hit number-one in 1972. Therefore, to avoid confusion, when Manilow decided to record the selection, he changed the title to "Mandy". It was Clive Davis who suggested that Manilow record the selection. Joe Renzetti arranged the record.[5] Manilow originally recorded it as an up-tempo bubblegum pop tune similar to English's original, but he and his producer, Ron Dante, reportedly hated the way it turned out; thus, he re-recorded it as a ballad and was much more pleased with the results.[citation needed]

In the Manilow version, the first two lines from the fourth verse following the instrumental section, were omitted, being:

"Riding on a country bus/ No one even noticed us."


Lyrics


I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
Shadows of a man
A face through a window
Crying 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

When you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
When you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

I'm standing on the edge of time
I walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world
Of uphill climbing
Tears are on my mind
Nothing is rhyming
Oh Mandy

When you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
When you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today
Oh Mandy

Yesterdays a dream
I faced the morning
Cryin' on the breeze
The pain is calling
Oh Mandy

When you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
When you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today
Oh Mandy

When you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
When you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you

Oh Mandy wont you listen to what I've got to say
Oh Mandy don't you let me throw it all away
Oh Mandy wont you listen to what I've got to say
And I need you today
Oh Mandy
