Sweat, piss, jizz and blood

I'm not familiar with Randy Newman but I like Warren Zevon and Barry Manilow about equally.

Randy's great, Zevons better. Barry was the control sample right?

Re: Warren Zevon v Barry Manilow v Randy Neuman

Randy Newman easily. Sail Away is one of my all time favourite albums. Also like Good Old Boys a lot.

I have a great deal of respect for Warren Zevon as a songwriter but something about his sound just does not connect with me.

Barry Manilow seems like a caricature of a musician created by a comedian rather than a real performer to me. But lots of people love him, so more power to them.
