  • The Barry Manilow Blandness Thread

    With credit to mate_stubb.

    In this thread we post our cheesiest and "safest" tracks. Post your most velvet strains, your most suave songs! That song your grandma loves to hear you play (and makes you cringe everytime you play it?) Yeah, That one!

    Post it here! Let us bask in the bland!

    But please: Only your OWN WORK. It can be a cover, but do not post random Youtube clips unless it's YOU banging out "Yellow Bird"!
    Hurrr. Derp, derp, derp.

      Mate approves this thread. He is relieved however that his old cassette tape recordings of a Barry White medley are safely unplayable.

        OMG you can't dis Barry, if only someone had introduced him to a synth early on, you'd be rolling over and begging before him!

                    Well ok, I suppose I did cover Britney Spears that one time, which is fairly bland.

                        I LOVE Barry Manilow. And Neil Diamond and other pure pop cheeZ. In the early 80's when I started gigging, there were still "mood lounges" to play that stuff in. I really wish that scene would come back. Please pardon my polyester.

                          I've been a fan of Barry Manilow since 1975. His lyrical and melodic compositional skills were actually really good. He also made a lot of people want to sing and play the piano back in the 70s, and "Could It Be Magic" is a nice adaptation of Chopin's Prelude in C Minor.

                            I think you all are missing the point of this thread. Where's the smarmy tunes that you've recorded? Post em!

                              i have a really bad cover of Dishwalla's Blue Cars that i did (you know that "tell me all your thoughts on god" song) with an MS2000, er 1 and pretty unfortunate vocals. i'd post it but i'm almost afraid to pollute my soundcloud with it baha

                              i will do it if someone else posts something embarrassing
