About the Song
"Mandy" (or "Brandy" in 1971) was a 1974 hit song for Barry Manilow. It was his first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts, and his first gold single. The song was written by Scott English under the title "Brandy", with music by Richard Kerr. Released by English in 1971, "Brandy" reached number 12 in the UK Singles Charts, but the fast-tempo version was a flop in the United States. It was later a hit for the Irish singing group Westlife. The suggestion that Scott English wrote the song about a favorite dog is apparently an urban legend. English has said that a reporter called him early one morning asking who "Brandy" was, and an irritated English made up the "dog" story to get the reporter off his back.[1] The line "you kissed me and stopped me from shaking" that appears in the lyrics has led some to believe that the song refers literally to brandy, specifically.    Download this sheet!

Everything about piano sheet music Sheet music has a history of its own, dating back to the 19th century. In those days, musicians would play classic compositions using sheet music piano.
