Auguri a Barry Manilow: I Write The Songs

Oggi il cantautore Barry Manilow compie 74 anni. Ho sceltro per voi il brano I Write The Songs, con testo e video.

Barry Alan Pincus, alias Barry Manilow, è nato a New York il 17 giugno 1943, ed è un cantante pop rock, che ha raggiunto la notorietà mondiale con la canzone Mandy nel 1974.

Per alcuni, Barry Manilow sarebbe in realtà Jim Morrison, che per scampare ad un complotto, si accordò con la CIA per cambiare nome (e i connotati) per fuggire alla morte.

Il suo spettro vocale assomiglia molto a quello di Morrison, così come la statura, ma conoscendo la vena poetica del frontman dei Doors mi viene da sorridere.

Comunque Manilow ha una grande carriera. cominciata nel 1973 con l’ album Barry Manilow I ed arrivata fino ai giorni nostri.

Testo: Barry Manilow – I Write The Songs

I’ve been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I’ve got my own place in your soul
Now, when I look out through your eyes
I’m young again, even though I’m very old

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock ‘n’ roll so you can move
Music fills your heart
Well, that’s a real fine place to start
It’s from me it’s for you
It’s from you, it’s for me
It’s a worldwide symphony

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I am music (music) and I write the songs
