"Brandy" (the song's original name) is a 1971 hit for songwriters Scott English and Richard Kerr. It reached number 12 in the UK Singles Charts, but the fast-tempo version was a flop in the United States. In 1974, recorded by Barry Manilow as "Mandy", the song was Manilow's first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Easy Listening charts, and his first gold single.

The suggestion that Scott English wrote the song about a favorite dog is apparently an urban legend. English has said that a reporter called him early one morning asking who "Brandy" was, and an irritated English made up the "dog" story to get the reporter off his back.

"Mandy" is the second single released from Westlife's fourth studio album, "Turnaround". The single peaked at #1 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming the band's 12th Number One Single. The idea for the single came around when the band performed a cover of the original on their live arena tour, which proved popular with fans. The single was the second from last to feature band member Brian McFadden.
