Background Noise …

Schmaltz crooner, Barry Manilow worked as a commercial jingle writer well into the ‘70s — writing catchy little numbers for State Farm Insurance, Band–Aid, Stridex, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Dr Pepper, Pepsi and McDonalds. For years he would feature many of the better–known examples in concert as the VSM or Very Strange Medley.
