Sixties Songs Are a Nice Treat For Halloween
Enough with the candy already! Who needs the calories. Instead, I treated myself to Barry Manilow's brand new CD, 'Greatest Songs of the 60s'. I picked up the dual-disc version available only at Target, which has all 13 songs on one side and a DVD with the making of this CD on the other, which is a must for any fan. If you lived through this decade then you will love hearing his version of "Cherish/Windy" sung with The Association (the only duet on this CD). He also does a great rendition of "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head", with a tip of his hat to "Singin' in the Rain" at the very end. All the songs are wonderful and have Barry's trademark key changes with my least favorite "Blue Velvet", but in all fairness to Barry, I really didn't like the original by Bobby Vinton. He pays homage to Burt Bacharach as well as the Beatles and ends the collection very appropriately with "What The World Needs Now". For more information about this CD, you can check it out here .
