Melissa Manchester's story songs stem from tales of her grandmother.

Manchester hopes he will
want to hear what she has to
say; indeed, she knows the
importance of learning
through listening. The story
songs she loves to sing and
write, in collaboration with
such composers as Carole
Bayer Sager and Bernie
Taupin, stem from her ap-
preciation of tales she heard
at home.
Listening to her bubbe was
a ticket to tales more intrigu-
ing than any movie matinee.
"My grandmother used to
weave interesting tapestries,"
Manchester recalls. The Old
Country had some new things
to say to the singer-to-be.
"She fired up my curiosity. I
was always asking 'Why'
about things!'
Manchester got her an-
swers through doing. But
Manchester wasn't energetic
about pursuing every branch
of life. Raised as a Reform Jew
right next door to a
synagogue, sometimes she
and her sister attended ser-
vices by opening the window.
"We used to listen from our
bedrooms," she says. Man-
chester must have liked what
she heard; religion still plays
a part in her life. "Celebra-
tions were fun; I remember
getting drunk on the Rosh
Hashanah wine!' She adds,
more seriously, "Traditions
are a very positive thing to
me.
"Interestingly," she says,
"the older I get and the more
disciplined I get, the more I
think about my religion and
its meaning!"
It helps her, she admits,
when she wants to come in
from the rain. "To get
through eight shows a week,
you have to go deeper into

yourself, you have to go into
your reserve of spirituality,"
notes Manchester.
It helps also to have a sup-
portive husband, which she
does. "He's a writer," Man-
chester says proudly. And the
two of them are working on a
future theater project for her.
But for now, talk centers on
Emma, a woman who worries
about finding the right man
in her life, about how to net
her handsome hero, Joe. Man-
chester admits she is very
much a worrier too — but not
about the same things.
"I worry about people who
hurt children. I worry about
the condition the world is in.
You know, it would be
fabulous if the heads of all the
countries in the world would
get together with their
children at their feet!" She
thinks. "I bet we wouldn't
have such problems then."
One thing Manchester
doesn't have to worry about is
finding the perfect romance
that eludes Emma. "Oh, no,"
says a merry Melissa Man-
chester, "I found my Joe!'
