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 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.
(Source) A Brooklyn cellphone crook’s poor wardrobe choices led to his arrest when his saggy jeans tripped him up during his getaway attempt and allowed cops to chase him down, police said. Joel Donaldson, 21, allegedly punched his victim in the face before snatching her phone at around 2:30 p.m. at Court and Remsen streets, just steps from Borough Hall. He then tried to get away on foot, but didn’t get far. His droopy blue jeans — which left his boxer shorts exposed — kept slipping down as he ran. A cop who was directing traffic nearby spotted the bungling bad guy’s sorry sartorial situation and hurried after him. Donaldson made it only about a block before his pants were completely around his ankles, allowing the officer to tackle him near Joralemon Street. “He was zigzagging all over the place, but he couldn’t run because his pants was falling down,” witness Arlene Williams said. “This cop saw it, and he went right after him.’’ Donaldson was arrested two blocks from Brooklyn Criminal Court and charged with robbery, cops said.
Belt-less. I really don’t understand some people. If you’re going to go through all the trouble of punching some poor lady in the face and stealing her cell phone, you’d think you’d invest in some comfortable clothes. Maybe gym shorts? Running shoes? Basically anything but baggy jeans. You rob some lady’s cell phone in baggy jeans you’re getting caught every time. The most important part of a robbery is getting away. I could go up to some lady on the street and knock her lights out, but I get winded running to first base in beer league softball so the chances of me getting away are very slim. Joel has all the gifts you want in a thief, yet he let his pride and baggy pants get in the way. Get some new clothes Joel, or invest in a belt
