Barry Manilow (born June 17, 1943) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, arranger, producer, conductor, entertainer, and performer.
When Peter accidentally swallows his phone in "Brian Does Hollywood", a telemarketing woman calls Peter to know if his satisfied with his phone service. Peter goes angry and requires talking to the supervisor. Barry Manilow's song "Looks Like we Made It" plays as the call is connecting to the supervisor. Lois says that she loves that song, so Peter open his mouth and everyone in the restaurant enjoys the song.
Peter, Glenn Quagmire, Cleveland Brown, and Joe Swanson went to a concert of his in "Back to the Woods" after a failed attempt to hide their feelings about his music when they heard about the concert during a news broadcast. They begin singing "Ready to Take a Chance Again", which transitions into Manilow singing the song in concert. He altered his 1974 song "Mandy" into "Quagmire", serenading Glenn with improvised lyrics. Manilow provides his own voice.
