Surprise of the Week: QVC Customers Dig Manilow

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2007 at 3:10 PM

This is the actual title of a press release sent to the media today from Sony BMG. (Thanks for the all-caps, you guys.)

BARRY MANILOW REIGNS AS THE HIGHEST SINGLE-HOUR MUSIC SALES EVENT IN QVC

HISTORY

The short of it: Manilow went on QVC to preview his upcoming CD, The Greatest Songs of the Seventies, and sold 40,000 of those fuckers. That's the worst mass misallocation of funds since the Iraq War.

Oh, well, however big a cheese sausage Barry Manilow is, at least no one has ever died from his music. That we know of.

No danger to national security; no boon to national sanity.
