Saturday 9: Copacabana
Unfamiliar with this week’s song? Hear it here.
1) This song refers to the merengue and the cha-cha. Are you a good dancer?
I suck at line dancing.
2) Dances like the merengue and cha-cha are featured on Dancing with the Stars. Are you a loyal DWTS viewer?
3) The Copa girl in the song, Lola, wears yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there. If we were going to the clubs tonight, what would you wear?
Clubs? I live in Hooterville. The only clubs we have here are those union hall places. Guess I’d just wear leggings and a sweatshirt
4) The real Copacabana nightclub was on East 60th Street in New York. It was used as a setting for the movie Goodfellas. Do you have a favorite mobster movie?
That one works as does GF 1&2
5) Our featured artist, Barry Manilow, has unfortunately spent a great deal of this young century in the hospital — broken nose, face lift, chest pains and two hip surgeries. Tell us about your most recent trip to the doctor, ER, or dentist.
I will go to the dentist in a couple of weeks. I’m having trouble keeping my bridge in place and the hygienist will no doubt pull it out again…costing me more to get it re-cemented
6) Manilow told US Magazine that he enjoys nude sunbathing. Have you ever skinny dipped or sunbathed au naturel?
ew. Manilow naked? ew
7) Before he became famous as a performer, Manilow was a very successful jingle writer. “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there …” and “You deserve a break today at McDonald’s …” were his. Tell us about a TV commercial you saw recently.
Is it me or have there been a lot of stupid people in those commercials lately? I just want to slap that idiot woman from this commercial
8) The Manilow faithful are known as Fanilows and proudly wear Barry hoodies, wristwatches and even dog tags. Do you have any clothes that feature a recording artist?
Somewhere in this house/attic I know there are t-shirts for Pink Floyd, Van Halen and a few more.
9) In 2005, Manilow refused to respond when Larry King inquired about his sexuality. Do you think it’s rude for interviewers to ask personal questions? Or is it something a performer should expect because it goes with the job?
Who cares???? I mean, Manilow is kinda obvious anyway. I’m kinda obvious and nobody asks me.
