Product Description

THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES uncovers a bounty of treasures and reignites nostalgia for these fantastic hit songs reinterpreted by Manilow in his signature style -   from his duet with Reba McEntire on Â?Islands in the Stream,Â? as they pay homage to Kenny Rogers & Dolly PartonÂ?s #1 duet of 1983 Â? to a trio of songs associated with memorable films: Phil Collins #1 hit of 1984, Â?Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)Â?; Bill Medley & Jennifer WarnesÂ? #1 hit of 1987, Â?I've Had the Time of My LifeÂ? (from Dirty Dancing); and Christopher CrossÂ? Oscar-winning #1 hit of 1981, Â?Arthur's Theme (The Best That You Can Do), Â? and much more.

THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES moves seamlessly through a selection of major hits from both sides of the Atlantic.  The UK is well-represented by Â?Careless Whisper,Â? the #1 hit of 1984 by Wham! featuring George Michael; Rick AstleyÂ?s #1 Â?Never Gonna Give You UpÂ?; and a song that Van Morrison first wrote and recorded in 1989, Â?Have I Told You Lately,Â? which later became a giant hit for Rod Stewart.

ManilowÂ?s impeccable performances and signature arranging style also breathe new life into a quintet of American classics: Â?Open ArmsÂ? by Journey; ChicagoÂ?s #1 Â?Hard to Say I'm SorryÂ?; Stevie WonderÂ?s #1 Â?I Just Called to Say I Love YouÂ?; Cyndi LauperÂ?s #1 Â?Time After TimeÂ?; and Richard MarxÂ?s #1 Â?Right Here Waiting.Â?BARRY MANILOW: THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES (tentative track listing and subject to change):
