(Not Really the) Top Ten Manilow.TV Requests

Just for fun, folks.

Top Ten Archives Barry's Fans Would Pay to See on Manilow.TV

10) The BMIFC 2009 Convention Concert (Las Vegas) with the intact Mayflower segment. (There goes that hint again.)

9) Paul's Mall, 1974

8) Any full-length set with Bette Midler performed at the Continental Baths.

7) Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Bette, 1974

6) Paramus Mall with Bette (year?). Don't forget the part where she tells off the Girl Scout.

5) BMIFC 1987 Convention (Washington, DC) where he premiered content from what was then called Jump Street.

4) A full-length perfomance from the One Voice tour, complete with kids chorus.

3) A full-length performance from Paradise Cafe.

2) Barry's entire "coaching" session with Debra Byrd for the American Idol contestants last season.

And the Number One Archive Barry's Fans Would Pay to See on Manilow.TV

The conversation in the limo back to the hotel after the Jonathan Ross taping.


  1. Pretty cute. There is one that not many have seen unless you went to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Bet he really enjoyed the "smells".

  2. I remember him talking about that on the Joan Rivers show back in the day. I believe his exact words were, "And then the *smell* hits you...." I've been to that rodeo, he's not kidding.

    Don't remember what he said about the chuck wagon delivery to the stage in the Astrodome.

    And if it's true that he gets motion sickness, what did he do with the oscillating round stage?

  3. Haha...I'd pay for that last one. But, they would probably have to BLEEP half of it!

    I'd like to see the Mayflower tour BEFORE it was merged with the Ultimate Manilow songs. From what I've heard it was spectacular. I'd also like to see Midnight with Manilow. Actually, any of the "talks" he's had at conventions would be great to see as well.
