“Sweet Heaven” – Copacabana

Music: Barry Manilow   Lyrics: Bruce Sussman & Jack Feldman

After moving locations, everyone was in sweet heaven when the famous nightclub Copacabana reopened in Times Square on this day in 2011, where it stands today.  This musical based on Barry Manilow’s hit 1978 single of the same name (which in turn was based on the illustrious club) tells the story of a showgirl named Lola, the brainchild of an aspiring composer.  In the composer’s imagined show-within-the-show, an incarnation of himself sings Lola’s praises in this swanky number.
