Barry Manilow can't sing
Another painful toll-of-time ouch...
Barry Manilow used to have a great voice. Now he sings like Rex Harrison, which is rather like not singing at all.
Click on the "Copacabana (Live)" link
Edit: It seems the video has been taken down.
But pitchless or not, he's still packing them in apparently.
I think the first time I ever heard someone talk through a song was Raymond Burr doing "Eleanor Rigby" on the Sonny and Cher show in the 70's, if you can imagine such. I'm surprised that video has not surfaced on the web. But it couldn't compare with William Shatner's Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
