Its a great song...so why the the hate/joke status? Like the pepsi max comercial that run on MTV when MC Hammer by misstake drank a zip of coke and started singing feelings. I actually prefere Jose Felicianos version that probaly got more airplay in sweden back then. Even as a insecure hardrockin teenager I always defended Barry Manilow if anyone dissed him. I always pointed out that Mandy was a great song and would make the ultimate powerballad for a metallband. What's wrong with me?
