9. ‘Stoney End.’
At the beginning of 1970, Barbara’s success in album sales had dwindled down compared to the 1960’s. It was for this reason that she started incorporating temporary pop together with rock music in her work. One of the most successful works that she undertook was the album ‘Stoney End.’ The album turned out to be a huge commercial hit and came out very strongly to compete with the rivals. ‘Stoney End’ which was the title song, was the second song on the album. The song was penned by Laura Nyro who never disappointed when it came to writing pop hits. It was Barbara Streisand’s second top 10 pop single. This title song reached number 6 on the chart.

7. ‘Happy Days Are Here Again. ‘
Barbara Streisand recorded this song more than thirty years after it had been first copyrighted in 1929 by Jack Yellen and Milton Ager.

The song was widely used thematically during the campaigns of Franklin Roosevelt’s presidential campaign that was a success. The single was highly praised for its originality.
6. ‘No More Tears (Enough Is Enough).’
In 1979, Donna Summer was the ‘Queen of Disco.’ On the other side, Barbara Streisand was a thriving female pop star and had in the recent past managed to hit the top 5 with ‘The Main Even/Fight.’ It was an uphill task to bring the two under the same roof to do a musical collaboration. In spite of this, they came together and did ‘No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)’ in 1979. Like it had been to bring the two together, it also became difficult to market it. Consequently, it ended up being released on their individual record labels. Barbara Streisand’s final product of the song ‘No More Tears’ went to the top position of the pop charts. This is one of the Barbra Streisand Top 10 Songs of All Time till 2017.
