"Mandy", originally titled "Brandy", is a song jointly written and composed by Scott English and Richard Kerr.

"Brandy" had been a hit in 1971 for Scott English in the UK and in 1972 for Bunny Walters in New Zealand. However, the song was made famous by Barry Manilow in 1974 when he changed the title to "Mandy" to avoid confusion with Looking Glass's "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)." His version reached the top of the US Hot 100 Singles Chart. Later on, it was recorded by many other artists. Irish boyband Westlife had a UK #1 with their version in 2003.
