World's Worst iPod: Don't Cry Out Loud

July 20, 2016

Melissa Manchester had a big hit in the early '70s with the song Midnight Blue. Producers thought that "Don't Cry Out Loud" would give her a boost back to the top of the charts.

She did pretty well! The song made it up to #10 in 1979, back in the days before we were all creeped out about circuses and clown imagery.

Speaking of clowns, enjoy this video of Ms. Manchester singing her hit song while surrounded by dancing clown puppets.
