WELLINGTON, New Zealand - It'll be Barry Manilow versus the mall rats.

The New Zealand city of Christchurch hopes that putting the American crooner's smooth and gentle tones into the mix of music to be broadcast through the central mall district can pacify unruly teens who congregate there, or at least convince them to go elsewhere.

"The intention is to change the environment in a positive way ... so nobody feels threatened or intimidated," Central City Business Association manager Paul Lonsdale told The Associated Press. "I did not say Barry Manilow is a weapon of mass destruction."

I don't know about "unruly teens"...but Barry's music would be enough to keep me from shopping there.

Kids will probably start wearing puffy shirts, platform shoes and have fruit hanging from their hair.

We know for sure he didn't send it all to them. He has spread the Barry M. love across America, too.
