  1. I have many memories of Billy Joel. Then again, when checking some of those memories on the internet, I found out that my timelines don’t quite match history. He is one of the first acts I started following and the first concert I attended.

    Any how … seeing as hassling The Producer and seeing how many pounds of crushed glass I can get him chew are one of the very enjoyable side benefits of these concerts, I have the pleasure of offering, from 1969 off their second album, The Hassles’ (NB: the first recorded releases featuring Billy Joel) “Four O’ Clock In The Morning”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odolg_XunuY. To quote W. Joel’s lyrics from this song: “And I rave onto the morning for the solid tune I’ve found.”

  2. I’m not a huge fan of Billy Joel, but the majority of concerts seen live are enjoyable. Now I would have loved to seen Neil Diamond. With Spotify, the husband and I tend to listen to Indie bands which has opened to a whole new range of music. Every once and a while I do love the oldies.

  3. Frank,

    I love your selection, it’s perfect for dialing up this week’s concert.

    It was on my short list, but I had another song in mind in honor of the US women’s soccer team which moves on to the semifinals now after beating France. “Pressure” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iyv905Q2omU. Because the girls are going to be feeling some of the stuff as they close in on the hardware. Of course, they’d probably just shrug.

  5. Long Island guy, Billy Joel, from when I lived there . A very popular singer/songwriter who many enjoyed. Sorry I missed the concert. I don’t have a favorite song by him. I mainly listened to him on the radio in the car while picking up or waiting for kids from activities. Hope to pop over for the next group concert .
