Number 836 - Barbra Streisand
Number 836 Barbra Streisand "Way We Were" (1974) . .
Barbra is damn sexy!
Whoa there Crowbarred you say, have you completely lost your marbles?
Not even Mr & Mrs Stranger, im very sane. (Kaff)
Now, Miss Streisand had a strange sex appeal, yes. She wasn't, say, Barbra Bach, no.
But Barbra had her own very unique appeal, maybe it was her eyes, maybe even her nose, maybe even just the way she sang. Hell .... it was all 3.
"Barbra Streisand's" status as one of the most successful singers of her generation is all the more remarkable not only because her popularity has been achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend -- rock & roll -- which she did not follow; but also because, despite an amazing singing voice that has enthralled practically anyone who has heard it, she has always used singing as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director. "
"In the 1970s, Streisand successfully married her musical and film acting interests, first in The Way We Were, a hit film with a theme song that became her first number one single; and then with A Star Is Born, which featured her second number one single, "Evergreen," a song she co-wrote. From that point on, every album she released sold at least a million copies. In the late '70s, she found recording success in collaboration: her duet with Neil Diamond, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," hit number one; as did "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," a dance record sung with Donna Summer. She had her biggest selling album in 1980 with Guilty, which was written and produced by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees and contained the number one hit "Woman in Love." In 1983, Streisand's first directorial effort, Yentl, became a successful film with a Top Ten soundtrack album. In 1985, The Broadway Album returned her to the top of the charts. 1991 saw the release of Just for the Record..., a boxed set retrospective, and her second film as a director, The Prince of Tides. Streisandreturned to the concert stage in 1994, resulting in the Top Ten, million-selling album The Concert. In 1996, she directed her third film, The Mirror Has Two Faces; and in 1999 she released A Love Like Ours."
