Bermuda Triangle

Album: Barry (1980)
Charted: 15

Songfacts®:

  • Running to 3 minutes 45 seconds, and co-written with Bruce Sussman and Jack Feldman, this is Barry Manilow's take on the Bermuda Triangle, and one which proves that there are far more inexplicable mysteries in this world that UFOs, time warps and magnetic anomalies in the ocean. Like women! Here, we see him departing for a holiday in the Sun with his woman - presumably not his wife, because she soon deserts him to walk off with a stranger. Happily, like buses, there will be another one along in a minute, and there is. And Barry lives happily ever after, at least until the end of his holiday.
  • On stage, Manilow would perform this song as a cameo with the assistance of a couple of models, or even with volunteers from the audience. All good clean fun. >>
