Barry Manilow's quotes

  • We went to see Britney Spears and I fell in love. She was singing to me, I know it. I'm so in love with her. I love her music, I do.

  • Misfits aren't misfits among other misfits.
  • I was the Justin Bieber of the '70s. Really, I was.
  • No one person or material thing could ever come close to the feeling I get when the music is right.
  • Every few years, I go back into all the songs and I update them so that it never sounds like an oldies show. If you come to the shows, they're full of muscle. 'Copacabana' sounds like it could have been released yesterday.
  • My hair was slicked down with a part. But that was before I discovered the blow-dryer. Now I'm fabulous.
  • Here's proof that if you live long enough, anything is possible.

  • I love any opportunity I have to make music.
  • You know, when I did 'American Idol' the three times, I tried to tell these kids you have to tell the story of the lyric.
  • Touring is a young man's game, but after 30 years of it, I want to stay home.
  • My style of music is the great American songbook meets the pop world of the Seventies and Eighties.
  • My goal was always to be involved in music that would outlive me. And maybe that's actually happening.
  • The public needs to know - they need to know as much about atrial fibrillation as they do about cancer and diabetes.
  • 'If I Should Love Again' - I was just so impressed with myself writing something like that. It wasn't a single and people didn't really know about it, but it's a beautiful song and that's part of what I'm loving.
  • Everything you say and do is having an impact on others.
  • I feel that after all those horrible reviews and jokes, I wasn't crazy all these years to stand up for the music I believe in. This album has proven that somewhere in the human race, the human heart is still racing and breaking and I am so grateful.
  • These days, with 'American Idol' and all the other reality shows, young people become famous overnight, and that can be very difficult to handle, the way photographers follow you around and study your every move.
  • You say something stupid and the next morning you're in the headlines.
  • 'Tryin' to Get the Feeling' has been a revelation. I'd forgotten how powerful that was. I'd forgotten how deep I can crawl into that one, and maybe because I'm older it means even more.
  • QVC has been very good to me.
  • I'm still hungry. I've still got a million ideas. I'm still strong and ready to create.
  • First of all, I've been having a wonderful run of luck with cover albums, songs I didn't write. I had five pop cover albums and two Christmas albums, and they were all very successful.
  • I believe in my writing.
  • There's just no quiet in Vegas.
  • Atrial fibrillation has been the low man on the totem pole and so we're just trying to get more visibility about this particular disease and how dangerous this could be.
  • I come from nowhere Brooklyn, New York. Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These days Williamsburg is kind of a hip area, but when I grew up there, the taxi drivers wouldn't even go over the bridge, it was so dangerous.
  • Whenever there was a choice between music and anything else, music won hands down every time.
  • You can't possibly prepare for what happens to you the day you hit No. 1 and people treat you differently.
  • The shows at the Hilton are the most exciting shows I've ever done. The stage is huge, but the theater is intimate, so we can have a magnificent production and still connect with the audience.
