Billy Joel's worst song

Probably the all-time greatest pub sing-along song ever! Especially if you are drinking in NYC.....

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Now that you've started reading this don't stop. If your reading this and ignore it you will have bad luck. Post this on 15 different songs in143 minutes. When your done press your space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters. This is freaky it actually works.

I saw Billy Joel several times when HE wore a younger man's clothes, he really gives your money's worth, but yes it is sad to hear his voice fading on this live album.

It was rather sad to hear this version, though when you consider how his voice sounds the song rings all the more true. Yet further proof that yes, we all do grow older and weaker.
Report as inappropriate
It's really strange to hear his voice darker and rougher now that he's older... but I hope he still loves performing because the crowd clearly loves him.

The crowd is involved from start to finish. That's the cool thing about this one. It's not like they just come in at certain points during the song.
