Billy Joel. Arguably one of the finest singer songwriters to ever exist in modern times. This song is one of my favorites from my childhood although the lyrics meant nothing to me then. “The Dom Perignon in your hand and the spoon up your nose” sounded silly to me in 1978 but now I get it and it certainly defines that era, for better or worse. Just a perfect example of Joel’s cleverness of word. Take a listen as well to “Piano Man” as you won’t find many waltzes in the annuls of Billboard Chart history as it pertains to modern pop music.
