Vienna by Billy Joel

One of his better songs which you rarely hear on the radio.


  1. bonus CD from a box set many years ago contained tracks fro mthe school lectures he did with a version of this song - the whole disc is worth finding.

  2. The older I get, the less I like Billy Joel. Most of his hits are condescending at best. Once I really listened to the words to Only the Good Die Young, I realized that he was a turd.

    1. Somebody with more time and academic funding than I needs to do an expose on all the famous 'singer-songwriters' of the early 1970's and see exactly how they all avoided Vietnam.

  3. Never owned any Billy Joel albums but I've seen him twice in concerts. The concerts were both fantastic.

    I can't stand Only the Good Die Your or Uptown Girl - yet I know all the words to both songs. Downeaster Alexa is a song I will always look for on a jukebox.

    Billy Joel is a paradox
