My Favorite Song of Barry Manilow
Even before my teenage years, I have been a certified Barry Manilow's fan. I love most of his songs and I never get tired of listening to them repeatedly. When Barry Manilow sings, he puts so much feeling into his singing and most of his songs will touch your heart. Whenever I hear his voice, it makes me feel nostalgic and makes me want to listen to more of his songs. One of my favorites among his many songs is entitled Please Don't Be Scared which was released in his 1989 self-titled album.
Please Don't Be Scared
This is Barry Manilow's song that makes me feel stronger and hopeful. It is very encouraging to hear this song. It makes one realize that you are not the only one suffering or experiencing trials and hardships in life.
Why I Love This Song
I love the song's melody, which was soft and slow and the lyrics were very comforting. Barry sings it as if he was talking directly to you. This song reminds us that in this life, there are times when we had to choose between doing the right thing and doing what is needed to be done in order to survive, that there are times when we had to swallow the bitter pill if only to stay alive in this world. That pain and sufferings are part of this life. It also tells us that no matter how big our problems are, we are not alone and there are always those, like our family and friends, who are willing not just to listen to us, but also to help us. It also tells us that it is okay to admit our weaknesses and our fears. That all of us have, in one time or another, feels helpless and confuse, alone and weary. Sometimes it is hard for a person to show his weaknesses to others for fear that other people might take advantage of him.
My favorite part of the song is the chorus, which goes:
I like how the song ended up in a positive way. The song is very uplifting, to say the least. I wish I could also be an instrument to help another person. Helping others actually is more like helping ourselves. It gives us a positive feeling. It does not also mean that helping only means giving material things. Sometimes people just need someone who will listen to them, give them words of encouragement, or sometimes just by staying beside them means a lot. I hope I can watch a Barry Manilow live concert in the future, but as of now, I have to be contented watching him on TV or via the internet.
