Manilow is the self-titled album released in 1985 by singer-songwriter Barry Manilow. The album had little impact on the charts. The album features 1980s style rock n' roll/ synthesizers. He was lured away from Arista Records, but as cited by Manilow in an interview, the executives who brought him over were no longer there when the album was released. This may have led to poor record sales, as well as the album sound being primarily a modern uptempo and synthesized release sharply different from Manilow's renowned piano ballads.

The album was Manilow's first of four albums with RCA Records. The other releases with the company are an original soundtrack album of his 1985 CBS television movie, Copacabana, in which he starred as Tony Starr with Annette O'Toole as Lola Lamarr. The other two RCA releases were foreign greatest hits albums that Manilow rerecorded some of the vocals of his hits in Spanish on Grandes Exitos En Espanol and in Portuguese on Especial.

Singles released from this album are:

  • I'm Your Man
  • Sweet Heaven (I'm In Love Again) from the television movie Copacabana
  • He Doesn't Care But I Do
  • In Search of Love
