Oh Brandy... Nope doesn't have the same ring to it...

Oh Mandy you came and you gave me a number one hit...

Barry Manilow hit to the top spot in the US when he released 'Mandy' on this day (18th Jan) in 1975.

But the original was actually called 'Brandy' when Scott English recorded it in 1972.

We think Barry picked a better name!
