Barry Manilow is a self-titled album released by singer and songwriter Barry Manilow. The album was released in 1989. This album also represented a hint of future album releases, many of the songs were not written/co-written by Manilow, which had until that point been rare. Manilow, known for being a composer, typically always stocked his albums with material he co-wrote with his lyricists. After the release of this album he embarked on introducing contemporary audiences to pop music of the 1930s through the late 1940s.

The singles from this album were: "Keep Each Other Warm", "The One That Got Away", "Please Don't Be Scared" and "When the Good Times Come Again", which hit #12 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart in June 2020 in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. No singles from the album reached the Billboard Hot 100, but "Keep Each Other Warm" and "The One That Got Away" made the AC chart at #7 and #25 respectively in 1989.[6]
