Somewhere Down the Road (Barry Manilow song)


Somewhere Down the Road (Barry Manilow song)

"Somewhere Down the Road" is a popular song written by Cynthia Weil and Tom Snow and most famously recorded in 1981 by Barry Manilow. Weil wrote the song's lyrics, and Snow wrote the melody.

The song was chosen for Barry Manilow by Arista Records' then-president, Clive Davis, and recorded by Manilow on his album "If I Should Love Again". Released as the follow-up to the top-20 hit "The Old Songs," "Somewhere Down the Road" did moderately well as a single in early 1982, reaching #21 on the Billboard Hot 100. On February 20, 1982, the record reached #1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart and stayed there for two weeks.
