I'm not a big fan of Barbra Streisand but I'm a big fan of some of the songs she sang. I've also seen some of her movies but frankly, not many of them are memorable as far as I'm concerned. May be at the age when I was exposed to them, I was simply too young to appreciate those  movies. But I do like some greatest songs from those movies.      People from Funny Girl is one of them. I love the lyrics in this song too! Lovely!      People, People …

Barbra has been more idol for 45 years. I've seen her twice in concert and know every dialogue in her movies from Funny Girl to Prince of Tides
