Quotes of Barry Manilow

#Quote
1[2012] Well, I smoked for 30 years. I started when I was nine years old. I grew up in Brooklyn. And then I stopped about 15, 20 years ago. Then I just started in Vegas and the band and I went down to a little club, and somebody offered me a cigarette. And I was back. Within a week I was back. Not on a pack a day; 'cause when I was really smoking I was on three packs a day - non-filters! Oh yeah, I was a great smoker.
2The 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.
3You can't possibly prepare for what happens to you the day you hit No. 1 and people treat you differently.
4Whenever there was a choice between music and anything else, music won hands down every time.
5I 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.
6Atrial 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.
7There's just no quiet in Vegas.
8I believe in my writing.
9First 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.
10I'm still hungry. I've still got a million ideas. I'm still strong and ready to create.
11QVC has been very good to me.
12What we hear now is great-sounding records with great-sounding grooves and loops. And the sound of these records is irresistible, but the craft of songwriting is just about over. That's why, whenever I get an opportunity to do an album full of standards, I jump at it because I miss it.
13'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.
14You say something stupid and the next morning you're in the headlines.
15To write a love song that might be able to make it on the radio, that is something that is terrifying to me. But I can definitely write a song about that chair over there. That I can do, but to sit and write a pop song out of the clear blue sky, that is very difficult and I admire the people that can do it.
16These 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.
17I 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.
18Everything you say and do is having an impact on others.
19'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.
20The public needs to know - they need to know as much about atrial fibrillation as they do about cancer and diabetes.
21My goal was always to be involved in music that would outlive me. And maybe that's actually happening.
22My style of music is the great American songbook meets the pop world of the Seventies and Eighties.
23Touring is a young man's game, but after 30 years of it, I want to stay home.
24You know, when I did 'American Idol' the three times, I tried to tell these kids you have to tell the story of the lyric.
25I love any opportunity I have to make music.
26Yeah, I'm old as the hills and you would think I'd be out to pasture someplace because I've done everything, but nothing has changed.
27Sneakers are not my thing.
28For a Jewish guy, I've recorded a lot of Christmas albums.
29Here's proof that if you live long enough, anything is possible.
30My hair was slicked down with a part. But that was before I discovered the blow-dryer. Now I'm fabulous.
31Every 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.
32No one person or material thing could ever come close to the feeling I get when the music is right.
33I was the Justin Bieber of the '70s. Really, I was.
34Misfits aren't misfits among other misfits.
35Everybody has to find out: who are you? What do you believe in?
36I didn't want to be treated like a 'star.' I fought it constantly, and I think I was rude.
37We 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.
38I am a musician. My passion for music has obliterated everything in its path for my entire life. Whenever there was a choice between music and anything else, music won hands down every time. No one person or material thing could ever come close to the feeling I get when the music is right.
