Neither.

I haven't heard much of BCR in a long time, but if I heard one of their songs it would be a pleasant surprise. As for Barry, I'd be lyin' if I said I didn't like...

Well said..but I liked some of thier stuff too. "The Way I Feel Tonight" and "You Made Me Believe In Magic" are my favorite two....but since there was no option for "Neither" I went with you ;)

Both are bad - but look who is still making considerably amount of money - Barry Manilow - especially with his new deal in Las Vegas.  <My MIL is dying to see him out there.> ???

I picked Barry Manilow.

I loved that scene in 'The Breakfast Club' where Bender (Judd Nelson) asks the teacher, Vernon, "Does Barry Manilow know you raid his wardrobe?"  Then Vernon responds with, "You'll get the answer to that, Bender, next Saturday.  Don't mess with the bull, you'll get the horns."  ;D

Bay City Rollers.  I still like to sing along to a Barry Manilow tune every now and then  :)

Manilows the worst. I've always liked the 'The Bay City Rollers'.

Who had more hits? Barry Manilow OR The Bay City Rollers?

I think we can safely say Manilow did.  I only remember 3 songs that The Bay City Rollers put on the charts (at least in the US), although I like their hit S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night.  :)

Well, I gave Barry my vote.  8)

I was a BCR Fan at the tender age of 8 and so wanted to marry Les McKeown!!  :-[ 
Not sure how many hits they had in the states - but they had a fair few here - including 'Bye bye baby', 'give a little love', 'money honey' and 'shang-alang'  :)

Another one of those that I can't honestly put an answer to...

Because, although one or two efforts were on the dodgy side, both acts made some great stuff...there - I said it, and without shame, I might add...

It must be age...!!

I grew up listening to both, if you don't like them there's something wrong with you (ha,ha)
If you don't like them do me a favor, stop denying it and learn to think independently - who cares what anyone else thinks! :P :P :o :o :D

Okay!! Okay! I like Barry Manilow.  :D  Must admit I used to be careful who I said that in front of but now I'm old enough to know better (or just not care).

The Bay City Rollers are / were massively worse that Barry Manilow. While not exactly my cup of tea, Barry Manilow is a talented songwriter and performer. On the other had, have you ever heard a cover version of a BCR song? I rest my case.
