No, that's Becky.

I didn't realize the Beatles wrote songs almost exclusively about the latest man they broke up with

Billy Joel broke my brain too.  Let's face it, payola and non-stop promotion from the record companiy made Billy Joel what he was.

When did Billy Joel start looking like Roark Junior?
 
2021-11-29 8:52:48 AM  
Did the Beatles also not reject their Nazi supporters?

Did he say that Taylor Swift was the best piano player in The Beatles?

Pop schlock vs pop schlock. I made the mistake of putting a tape with a Joel song on it in my car's tape deck, my Italian best friend from Queens threw it out the window.

She's known as "The Fifth Beatle."

Yeah...I heard stories back in the Radio days. It certainly wasn't because the venue owners loved him.

But everything through Nylon Curtain was pretty good, though, and still holds up.

That comment broke our brains too, lady.

She's been broken for a long time, still crying about a scarf she lost over a decade ago.

Looks like Mike Ehrmantraut to me
 
2021-11-29 9:27:21 AM  
Taylor Swift is the best drummer in The Beatles

Take it easy there Bill.  She's not going to sleep with you.

I'm more excited about the songs Billy would write about their breakup.

Maybe we should look a little closer at what's going on with Billy Joel's brain.

Tape deck?

Are you posting from 1981?

I can kind of see what he's getting at. Even the Beatles wouldn't be the Beatles today because the pop music landscape doesn't allow an artist to get as big as they were in the 60s. But she's as a big a star as anyone can get these days.

🎵 She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
And she fought for a new deal with Spotify
And she only writes songs about ex'es who leave
Her music is meh but she's always a Becky to me 🎶

Had you just waited two weeks, it would have become the Best of Queen.  You have to have patience, man.

I can't even imagine the levels of self-absorption that would compel someone to write songs exclusively about themselves, over and over again.

She's one of a small number of artists who banked on streaming before record companies closed the barn door. Doubtful anything like that will ever be allowed to happen again.

More like 1987.
 
2021-11-29 10:51:11 AM  
Oh and I haven't listened to Billy Joel, The Beatles, or Taylor Swift since then either.

Kids today will never know the pain of having to wedge a small piece of cardboard in one corner of the car's 8-track player to make it play correctly...

Still not going to beat Hetfield breaking down in tears when Elton John compared Nothing Else Matters to Greensleeves.

"I am the entertainer
Been all around the world
I've played all kinds of palaces
And laid all kinds of girls
I can't remember faces
I don't remember names
Ah, but what the hell
You know it's just as well
'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
It all becomes the same"
 
2021-11-29 11:09:33 AM  
I'm seldom enamored of newer music but Swift's is different. I enjoy it.

You know what? He got 80s Christie Brinkley so I think he'll be fine.

Never heard that one, but my 8-track wasn't in a vehicle.  Was the cardboard to compensate for shiatty tolerances in the cassette tray?

He bagged Christie Brinkley; don't rule him out that quickly.

Does double-sided velcroing the portable CD player to the center console while simultaneously using electrical tape to stabilize the cord on the tape deck adapter count?

Get over yourself Mrs. Joel.

TL/DR:  Billy Joel is a moron.
