Aussie Loiterers Shot With Fully Loaded Manilowazooka

Peculiar news via Austrialia. It seems that a suburb of Sydney has resorted to blasting Barry Manilow at a park to scatter away a bunch of motorheads. No doubt its working, but its starting to scare away the folks who live there too.

Thanks deltacape for the tipoff on this wacky story.

Barry Manilow's music may be magic to some but not to everybody, as they're finding out in a suburb of Sydney, Australia.

To chase away car enthusiasts who were gathering in a local park at nights on weekends, officials in Rockdale have been blasting songs by Manilow and Doris Day.

Officials say after a month, the music is having the desired effect. But people who live near the park aren't too happy. They say, imagine having to listen to "Copacabana," "Could It Be Magic" and "Que Sera Sera" every week.

One woman says she can't sleep when the songs are blaring and she can't imagine how she'll survive, given that officials plan to keep up the musical barrage for the next six months.

The Australian city has turned down the volume a bit and is reviewing the playlist. Even Rockdale's deputy mayor admits he can't stand Manilow's hit "Mandy."
