Favourite song of all time

I grew up in that area just a few years past that era. I know the village green. That's the way it was. A real depiction of the times. Too bad for Brenda and Eddie but it was common. The musical depiction is great nevertheless . I think the piano man sings it true with great musicality.

I'm surprised that I've never heard this song before, but of course I love it because it's Billy Joel. This must be where Ben Folds Five gets some of their inspiration.

I'm surprised there aren't more comments. I agree -- BEST song ever written, sung, produced, and gracing the air waves. Three songs in one, brilliantly composed. Billy Joel is amazing even now.
