Barry Manilow Halloween Surprise: "I Sing with Dead People" Duets with the Deceased

Oh my god. Hilarious. Barry Manilow has recorded an album of duets with dead people. They are all dead. Dead, dead, dead. And he's releasing it a few days before Halloween on October 27th.

After all, Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett have duets albums. Why not Barry? Of course, Barbra did resurrect Elvis for her album. Now it's Barry's turn to be the crypt keeper.

And what a group! Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and Jimmy Durante he got from one of those Hollywood Boulevard souvenir shops. Whitney Houston? Why not Michael Jackson? (Probably couldn't get permission.) Barry's also got Andy Williams, Louis Armstrong, "Mama" Cass Elliot, Sammy Davis Jr., Dusty Springfield, John Denver, and Frankie Lymon.

"My Dream Duet" is the name of the album. Barry didn't dream of singing with people who were alive– and breathing. No, it was a visit to the cemetery that turned him on.
