by

Barry Manilow



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Barry Manilow agreed to sing the romantic theme song to the comedy thriller Foul Play, which starred Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn. The film was a huge hit, and so was the song, in which a man who has been a recluse for part of his life is ready to take a chance at love again. Manilow's "Copacabana (At The Copa)" was also used in the movie. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)

What can you say about Barry Manilow's voice on a song like this? Smooth like buttah! The lyrics say it all and the emotion is one many could probably relate to at some point in their lives.
