Some songs make going back in history worth our while. The melodies mark the interval and the feelings attached to a particular time. Let's take a trip to the past and relive the best of the best. The excellence and passion poured into one symphony!
The classic number, I Won't Be the One to Let Go, was recorded by legendary songsters, Barbra Streisand and Barry Manilow, in 2002 and released by Columbia Records. It was included in Barbara's sixth compilation album, Duets. To add a personal touch to the track, Mr. Manilow had made contributions in writing it himself along with Richard Marx.
This song is just gold!
An official video was never filmed for this incredible song. Well, sometimes just the iconic voices are enough to paint an image. Its lyrics discuss mutual love in a relationship and forgoing fears of detachment.
The music critics were torn between two opinions about it. Some calling it sweet while others scored it as mediocre and unmemorable. Listening to it now makes it so special as we can judge it to be just amazing.
Manilow's and Streisand's vocals were phenomenally matched. Their notes resonated with the same energy and talent. Their collective work deserves its own rightful place in Hall of Fame. Don't you think?
Another soul-stirring duet
Barbara's voice can mix with any singer who has the same optimum caliber as her. She never shied away from performing with the best and creating songs that are bound to be the most favorite, timelessly. Barbara performed the song Cry Time with Ray Charles and had proved how remarkably versatile she is.
There is no denying that these two have bestowed a new criterion of brilliance in music.
