Judge Uses Barry Manilow Music as Punishment

Poor Barry Manilow. It's not enough that so many young people make fun of their parents for listening to his classic tunes, but now a court is taking it a step further.

Judge Paul Sacco from Fort Lupton Municipal Court in Colorado said that he is sick and tired of people coming into his courtroom for noise violations, so he has a new plan of action.

His punishment for noisy folks disturbing their neighbors? Being forced to listen to an hour of Barry Manilow or the annoying theme song from the show Barney and Friends.

"This is a way, when I look back, of teaching manners to people," the judge said. He feels that "these people must listen to music they don't like, because that's what they impose on others."

Tell us - what other tunes do you think would fit the bill?
