Wow, Billy Joel's breakup with Christie Brinkley turned him into the Architect from The Matrix and made him buy a really gay piano.

Hey, I'll ride with Billy Joel, provided:

1. He's drunk.

2. He's driving an Oldsmobile Delta 88

3. We're driving across a bridge.


Yea, I can swim.

Don't forget, a dead or dying woman is crucial, if you want to do it up Kennedy style.

I don't care what anyone says, I love Billy Joel. Seen him live about 6 times and he (used to) put on a great show.

He really lost his drive (no pun intended) and passion by "River of Dreams" though.

By the time he started touring with Elton John, it was over.

But I do love his catalog.

As someone who is getting a house apartment in Hackensack, because that's all I can get for my money, I am getting a kick out of these replies.

buntz: He really lost his drive (no pun intended) and passion by "River of Dreams" though.


And admittedly so. There's a reason the refrain to the last track goes "And these are the last words I have to say."

You've probably heard him sing, actually. Due to a bizarre birth defect, his singing voice sounds exactly like an acoustic guitar.

/Add me to the "Billy Joel is awesome" list.

You know, based on this conversation, I tried to listen to River of Dreams on my way to work tonight.  Unlistenable.  It's just awful.  "Lullabye" is the only marginally acceptable song on that entire CD, and I'm partial because I used to sing it to my daughter after she was born.

It's just an awful CD.  And "Famous Last Words" is an AWFUL coda of a fantastic career.  Just awful.  Great "words" but just terrible song.  I'd love to hear a cover of "Famous Last Words" but done right.

Well, any significant memory I have of hearing it is from when I was roughly 8 so I can't really argue whether or not his voice was terrible at that point. Besides, I have a decently different taste in music now, for one, for another I tend to view pop songs through lyrical glasses first and foremost. "River of Dreams" (song) is enjoyable, "Lullabye" is good, though sappy (I suppose if I ever have a kid, I will change my mind on songs of that ilk), and I'd have to spend some time listening to get strong opinions on the rest of them.
Looking at that track list, though, I can't recall any vivid memories that would be many of those songs above his other work.

Scenes from an Italian Restaurant renders all your "yuck yucks" null and void.  A hundred stinkers still cannot diminish it's brilliance.
