Here's a heartwrenching performance: Legs & Co. get all moody & sad, dancing to Barry Manilow's Lonely Together on Top of the Pops. I'm certainly mellowing out in my old age: back when this was a hit, I hated Marry Banilow and all his fellow Middle-of-the-Road singer-songwriters, with all the righteous cool fire of Youth. These days, while I can't quite say I love the stuff, I can at least appreciate the artistry.youtube
Update: I'd assumed that Barry himself wrote this song: but Carl has pointed out that Kenny Nolan wrote it. A prolific hit writer of the seventies, Kenny also wrote Labelle's Lady Marmalade, and Jim Gilstrap's Swing Your Daddy which Pan's People danced to. Thanks, Carl!
