I think this song came out in 1977. So, it's safe to say that I've heard it, probably, for 30 years now, right? But I really just heard it yesterday. I can't explain how you go all these years and never really, really listen to something that you hear, quite a lot.It could be these pain pills, I'm on, you know, that have me zoning. I mean I used to get stoned, years upon, years ago and I would just sit and listen to music. It sustained me. Well, music and M & M's, sustained me. But they worship Billy Joel, in his hometown, here on Long Island. Summer nights are filled with Billy Joel cover bands, at every Hampton's affair, he is their Golden Child, their speaker of truths and perspective.
So, every day, I hear at least one tune by him, on my radio station Walk 97.5
Is it possible, to just now hear something, to wake-up from a 30 year stumble? Billy Joel has been played on radio stations for more years, than some of you have lived. I think, quite often, we just took for granted, such talent. We expected it. Where the hell did all the talent go? Today's music is just spewed out and people just swallow it and mutter "OK?" Now, I'm not saying there's no talent today. A blank statement like that, would most certainly make me sound like the old fogy, I am. But a lot of it, leaves a lot to be desired.
I'm home from work, till today because of my surgery. So, I've been sitting around gobbling pain pills and listening to music. Right now, I'm debating what surgery, I could have next, so I can do this again!
