Copacabana (Cover Version of Barry Manilow)

Copacabana

Accidentally I had selected this DAMN song for my Australia xFactor 2016 and failed miserable.  I did not have enough practice coordination between my dancing move and singing at the same time.  2 weeks to master any song is not not easy for me because I do have a full time job in IT. I don't have luxury time just to sing and dance alone!!! 

"Copacabana", also known as "Copacabana (At the Copa)", is a song recorded by Barry Manilow. Written by Manilow, Jack Feldman and Bruce Sussman, it was released in 1978 as the third and final single from Manilow's fifth studio album, Even Now (1978).

The song was inspired by a conversation between Manilow and Sussman at the Copacabana Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, when they discussed whether there had ever been a song called "Copacabana". After returning to the U.S., Manilow — who, in the 1960s, had been a regular visitor to the Copacabana nightclub in New York City — suggested that Sussman and Feldman write the lyrics to a story song for him. They did so, and Manilow supplied the music.[1]

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The song's lyrics refer to the Copacabana nightclub, "the hottest spot north of Havana". The story starts in the late 1940s, focused on Lola, a Copacabana showgirl, and her lover Tony, a bartender at the club. One night, a mobster named Rico takes an interest in Lola, but he overplays his hand while trying to seduce her and is attacked by Tony. The ensuing fight results in a shooting; after it is initially unclear "who shot who," it soon becomes clear that Tony has died. Thirty years later, the club has been transformed into a discotheque, but a crazed and drunken Lola, having lost Tony, still spends her nights at the Copacabana dressed in her 1940s finery.[2]

The recording was used as incidental music in the 1978 movie Foul Play, which starred Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn, and has been featured in over a dozen other films since. It is one of two Manilow songs used in the movie, the other being its theme song, "Ready to Take a Chance Again."

The single version clocks in at 4:08; the Extended Disco version is titled "Copacabana (At The Copa) (Disco)" and is 5:46 in length. As opposed to a commercial 12" single, the extended version was on the flip side of the 45 and can also be found on Manilow's first Greatest Hits double album.


Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair
And a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star
Tony always tended bar
Across the crowded floor
They worked from eight 'till four

They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the Copa (Copa), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (Here)
At the Copa (Copa), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion at the Copa
They fell in love

(Copa, Copacabana)

His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancin' there
And when she finished, he called her over
But Rico went a bit too far, Tony sailed across the bar
And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two

There was blood and a single gun shot
But just who shot who?

At the Copa (Copa), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (Here)
At the Copa (Copa), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion at the Copa
She lost her love

(Copa, Copacabana
(Copa, Copacabana
Copacabana!
Music and passion
Always in fashion)

Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was thirty years ago
When they used to have a show
Now it's a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear
Faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined
And drinks herself half-blind

She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she's lost her mind!

At the Copa (Copa), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (Here)
At the Copa (Copa), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion at the Copa
Don't fall in love

(Copa) Don't fall in love (Copacabana)

(Copacabana, Copacabana
Copacabana, Copacabana)
