Some poor soul took the trouble to loosely dissect Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana.” And boy are we glad they did.

Hat tip @AlphaProofing.



  1. According to YouTube, the poor soul is Ari Hoptman, a former undergraduate linguistics major from Wayne State University. And I sure am glad he took the trouble.

    I actually posted this on my linguistics blog not too long ago as well. http://walkinthewords.blogspot.com/2009/09/barry-manilows-copacabana-explained.html
