I easily could have made this into a top 25 list, but 25 is a high number. In no particular order…
1. She’s Always a Woman
If you can’t woo a woman with this song, then you’re a moron.
2. Downeaster Alexa
The only good part about the Hangover 2 was this song. Fact.
3. We Didn’t Start The Fire
Only William Joel could jam out and teach you world history at the same time.
4. For The Longest Time
Whoaaaaaaaaaaaa for the longest time.
5. Scenes From An Italian Restaurant
Billy Joel is such a visual singer, he paints a picture with this lyrics and tells a story better than almost anyone. Songs like Piano Man and Scenes From An Italian Restaurant make you feel like you’re at the bar while he’s playing piano or eating in an Italian resturant somewhere. He’s the master. I can’t wait for his sweet music to make love to my ears tonight.
I’m on the record as being a big Jimmy Fallon fan, but when you’re in the same frame as William Joel, you have a zero chance of getting any credit for a great segment. Just a perfect spin on a classic song. If there’s anyone who can lead the comeback of Doo Wop, it’s these two. I may even start a petition to just have Billy Joel be a guest on The Tonight Show every night so they can do Doo Wop versions of every song in history.
I’m not really sure what to say about this video. Larry King, spaceships, black guys in cowboys hats. I guess it’d be easier to mention what this video DOESN’T have. I think this video should end the discussion on what’s wrong with Miley Cyrus. If my dad was this insane I’d probably hump a teddy bear and shave my eyebrows too. I sincerely hope I never see another Billy Ray Cyrus again. Either that or I hope I go blind.
P.S. Makayla Bartley sums up this video so perfectly.
I inherit a beer belly and a borderline obsessive personality. Alexa Ray Joel inherits the voice of an angel. Just singing a beautiful cover of her Fathers hit song for Gap. If I had to hand pick one celebrity’s genetics I’d like to inherit it would be Billy Joels. The total package and then some.
P.S. Is it weird that I’m attracted to Alexa Ray because of who her father is and not because of her looks? I don’t even know who I am anymore.
