• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Barry Manilow's Work Shows Examples of the Following Tropes:


 Lily: You creep

Into my heart,

And make my heart burn.

Barry: You sneak

Into my mind,

And make my head ache.

Both: There are things I long to tell you

Lily: You're much too blond.

Barry: You snore.

Both: Look, It's time to face the music.

Barry: Bye bye!

Lily: Don't slam the door!

And I don't want,

Barry: I don't want,

Lily: I don't want.

Barry: I don't want,

Both: No, I don't want your flowers anymore!


 Wouldn't it be fine bein' lonely together?

Wouldn't it be fine havin' a shoulder to share?

You could tell me how he broke your heart,

And I'll tell you how she broke mine.

Then maybe later on I could take you home.

Now, wouldn't it be sad bein' lonely all alone?


 You start off with the verse

That's the part that tells you

What the song is gonna be about.

You gotta grab 'em first

Dope is good, or death is nice

But love is still the best way out.

And then you pad, and then you fill,

Or you complain, or get a chill.

But most of all, you move along

To the center of the song.



 Yes, that's the chorus

Sing it for us

Never overlook givin' it a hook

You see sometimes I really do write the songs!
