The Title and Artist for the “Can You Guess This Song (First Song)” this past week (2/28/2021) were: 

“I Write The Songs”  as recorded by Barry Manilow (1975)


(1) Barry Manilow - I Write the Songs ((STEREO)) 1975 - YouTube


I Write the Songs - Wikipedia


"I Write the Songs" is a popular song written by Bruce Johnston in 1975. Barry Manilow's version reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1976  after spending two weeks atop the Billboard adult contemporary chart in December 1975.  It won a Grammy Award for Song of the Year and was nominated for Record of the Year in 1977.  Billboard ranked it as the No. 13 song of 1976.

Manilow was initially reluctant to record the song, stating in his autobiography Sweet Life: "The problem with the song was that if you didn't listen carefully to the lyric, you would think that the singer was singing about himself. It could be misinterpreted as a monumental ego trip."  After persuasion by Clive Davis, then president of Arista Records, Manilow recorded the song, and his version of "I Write the Songs" was the first single taken from the album Tryin' to Get the Feeling. It first charted on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 15, 1975, reaching the top of the chart nine weeks later, on January 17, 1976.
