    ------ About the song SAM YOU'VE MADE THE PANTS TOO LONG performed by Barbra Streisand

Barbara Streisand did not write the lyrics for this, they were written by Milton Berle, Sam Lewis, Victor Young and Fred Whitehouse. A parody of Lord you Made the Night Too Long, the song was written in 1940

Great translation but a couple of changes | Reviewer: Andy Wakshul
    ------ About the song I'M NOT A WELL MAN performed by Barbra Streisand

There are a couple of spots where the lyric needs correction:

---"assorted large and small poor relations" (not "logic")
---"It would make a heartbreaking play or story that only Turgenev, maybe, could write" (not what's there)

    ------ About the song SONGBIRD performed by Barbra Streisand

At this particular time in Ms. Streisand's career, she was fighting critics and grocery store rags about all the lies they created about her. Along comes SONGBIRD. A lot of Streisand's songs were about pain and people took them to heart for themselves and almost forgot who was singing their songs. She simply asks, if I sing for you, who sings for me? Over time, this song seems to have gotten lost in the repeated greatest hits cds released. All of us wonder, at some point, where are our friends when we need them? Confused, because we feel that we are always there for our friends.

This song comes from the album of the same name which included her singular version of "You Don't Bring Me Flowers". As the story goes, both she and Neil Diamond recorded this song, written by Mr. Diamond, for their current albums. A Chicago DJ, recognizing this, decided to mix them together and played it on the air much to the delight of listeners. That version started playing on radio stations across the country and music enthusiasts wanted to know where to get the song. Both Ms. Streisand and Mr. Diamond, both on the same label, Columbia Records, went into the studio and recorded their infamous duet, leading to a number one song that was then released on Ms. Streisand's Greatest Hits, Volume Two.

Of note about the SONGBIRD album were the tracks "Tomorrow," a very popular song from a successful Broadway musical, Annie. In addition, it included "Love Breakdown" which was released as a 12" maxi-single, which now is very rare because the pressing was so limited. The remainging tracks were in the vein of heartbreak, common theme throughout all of her recorded music. But many at the time could not believe that she would record a song with a silly title and equally silly premise. In our love lives, we often find ourselves becoming attached to personal elements of our partners. The most common being their smell. It is in our pillows, on our sheets, on their clothes. "Honey Can I Put On Your Clothes" touched upon this but it was dismissed in the late 70s as just more of the same "get in touch with one's self" philosophy. People actually laughed at the title and the premise. Today, we recognize it's meaning and see it as an old, accepted idea.

SONGBIRD was a great album, made more beautiful because we had a chance to take look inside Ms. Streisand. We knew she sang for us but we couldn't provide her with the answer she wanted. Who will sing for her. Fast forward to the mid-90s when she met, fell in love with and married James Brolin, most well known for his roll as a fellow doctor on the popular TV show, "Marcus Welby, M.D." He has been singing her song ever since.

    ------ About the song PUT ON YOUR SUNDAY CLOTHES performed by Barbra Streisand

Just wanted to thank you for posting this. I saw this movie several times when it first came out with my Great Great Aunt (Auntie) and for some reason this song has been going through my head for the last couple of days but I couldn't remember all the words.
Have a Blessed Day!

One God brings back memories | Reviewer: Steve
    ------ About the song One God performed by Barbra Streisand

"One God" is a song that brought back memories for me dating back to 1967. My 7th grade teacher (Catholic school) taught us this piece. A few words have changed; I am not sure if this was done by Barbara Streisand or to make the song politically correct. I think this song is one that is acceptable to all three major religions; Judaism, Christianity and Muslim. All three are mono-Theistic and believe in the same God. I would like to see a multi-cultural religious choir made up of children of those faiths perform this song as a promise of hope that God will give us peace in our time.
