Barry Manilow says a good love song never goes out of style, so he's keeping things romantic as he moves to the Las Vegas Strip for a new show opening March 5. Manilow says he's starting from scratch on the new show at the Paris Las Vegas hotel-casino and making it as romantic and beautiful as possible.

The 63-year-old "Mandy" and "Copacabana" crooner says the romantic world of Paris fits with his latest album of love songs debuting Jan. 26.

"The Greatest Love Songs of All Time" includes 15 classic love songs, including "Fools Rush In" and "How Deep Is the Ocean."

Manilow says young people seem to be getting angrier in songwriting and performing, but audiences still appreciate good love songs.
