Betty, Mister D
Isn't Easy", but it is when you are the Divine Miss M. This song also reunites
Miss M with Mister Magic Fingers on keyboard and arrangement....Barry Manilow.
I'd love to see him produce at least one more album for Bette.
Divine Miss M has been called the euphemism for a female dog before, so she finally
played one as Georgette, the spoiled poodle in Oliver & Company. Her show-stopper
"Perfect Isn't Easy" is the over-the-top highlight of the film. Midler
has also appeared in several Disney live action hits, including Down & Out
in Beverly Hills, Ruthless People, Outrageous Fortune and Big Business.
soundtrack features a wide range of musical styles, allowing listeners to experience
the different flavors of New York City. Billy Joel demonstrates his passion for
the city's carefree mentality on the rhythmic track "Why Should I Worry?"
Bette Midler adds the cabaret-style "Perfect Isn't Easy," while Huey
Lewis sings about endless possibilities on the pop tune "Once Upon a Time
in New York City." Latin performing artist Ruben Blades entices listeners
to tango on "Buscando Guayaba," and Ruth Pointer (from the Pointer Sisters)
offers the jazzy dance track "Streets of Gold."
