Subject:  Mickey would love the song "SONGS"
Message:  Some of the people who love my friend JIMMY WEBB songwriting most are the married couple Cynthia Weil - Barry Mann.

SONGS
People -I don`t understand them
Never can and never could
The more I get to know them
The less I think I should
They don`t mean the things the say
Or say the things they mean
You`ve got to try and find the message somewhere in-between
But songs are such good things
They never change their tunes
They fill up lonesome evnings and empty afternoons
Songs make such easy friends
All you do is singalong
And you can`t stay a stranger to a song
Everyone seems to be movin`
Movin` up or movin` on
Just when you try to touch them
That`s when you find they`re gone
We pass thru each other´s lives
And fade into the past
You just don`t know who to believe in
No one seems to last
But songs are such good things
They never change their tunes
They fill up lonesome evnings and empty afternoons
Songs make such easy friends
All you do is singalong
And you can`t stay a stranger to a song
Old songs, new songs, bright songs, blues songs
Sweet songs, soul songs, good old rock and roll songs
Songs are such good things they never change their tunes
They fill up lonesome evnings and empty afternoons
Songs make such easy friends
All you do is singalong
And you can`t stay a stranger to a song

Copyright 1973 - Music Mann - Lyric Weil




Mann & Weil married in 1961 if I remember right!
I like very much when Barry Mann sing solo - he have MUCH HUMOR!

If you ever pick up a cd with B.M. old tunes, listen to "Who put the the bomp" (writer B.M. + G. Goffin) (millionseller for him) and his own ANSWER "Teenage has been" (writer Mann & Weil + Goffin) - One day you sell a million records next day around a zero (only father, mother, sister and brother).
But still is Mann & Weil + Phil Spector`s "You`re lost that loving feeling" US(worlds???) most play song.

In 2000 Barry Mann made a great SOLO cd "Soul & Inspiration" with Bryan Adams, Carole King, J.D. Souther, Peabo Bryson, more - after Jimmy W. have made his cd "Ten easy pieces" - same mood.
Barry M. also wrote "Sometimes when we touch" with Dan Hill.

sincerely
