. . . sing the duet, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” on his new album, “The Greatest Songs of the Seventies,” available September 18th.
Given what we openly know about her and what we suspect about the multi-talented Manilow, it’s hard to see how that will work, since there’s absolutely zero chance either of them will be breaking the other’s heart . . . ever.
The difference between these two is that Manilow is a classy, extremely talented composer, lyricist, vocalist, and performer, who knows the meaning of “Shut Up & Sing.” We mostly have no idea what his political views are. Rosie is the exact opposite. Among other objects of her affection, she made clear her love for the only man the open lesbian ever had such feelings for–Al-Qaeda terrorist mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
The album consists of covers of other acts’ 1970s hits and his own hits from the decade–including “Mandy and “Copacabana.” Too bad, Manilow didn’t do an updated version of “Copa” about Rosie O, “Qaeda Fanatic”:
Her name was Rosie; She was a big mouth;
“The View” said don’t cut your butch hair [that was in her ABC contract]; But then she got outta there;
His name was Khalid; Sheikh Mohammed;
He killed many from the U.S.; But about that Rosie didn’t distress;
She loved him very much; Much more than Donald Trump;
She was a Qaeda; Qaeda Fanatic;
“Don’t keep these poor men in Gitmo; They deserve a lot of dough;”
At the Qaeda; Qaeda Cabana (Gitmo); Koran and Prayermats were always the passion; At Gitmo, they fell in love . . . .
