Yesterday the All Time Top 10 podcast was brought to my attention because they recently ran down their top 10 favorite Billy Joel songs. Since it’s a host and a guest you get TWO top 10 lists. I think all of their choices were solid but my list is different. No matter what you favorites are, this is a good listen. Check out some of the other episodes too.

Not only is he the Piano Man, he is the Fucking Man.

I hope that Billy Joel is enjoying his return to the spotlight as much as I am.

You can find the full episode at the link above. Billy’s segment begins at about the 16 minute mark.

fratgod asked: Billy joel sold out in the 80s and really blew

The only people who throw around the “term sell” out are people who never had anything to sell. You’ll learn that when you grow up.

This is what happens when you combine a lonely, horny Billy Joel fan with Valentine’s Day, a dumb sense of humor, and Microsoft Paint. Happy belated Valentine’s Day everybody

This is too silly to not pass on.

Now It’s YEARS of Billy Joel

On Thursday morning I got an email telling me that A Year of Billy Joel is two years old. I suppose that makes the name of this blog inaccurate as it’s now Two Years of Billy Joel, actually that’s wrong too because I’m now in my third year of Billy Joel.

Nitpicking aside, I’m still here. Once I made it though all of the songs in 2012 there wasn’t a whole lot more for me to write on a daily basis, but that doesn’t mean I was done with this thing. Early in 2013 I realized that I was still thinking about my completed Year of Billy Joel project. What started out as a silly thing about music became a serious thing about something more than that. I couldn’t turn the Billy Joel part of my brain off simply because the calendar had turned over.

Early in 2013 I decided that I wanted to tell people about what had happened when I attempted to listen to every Billy Joel song because the experience made me reconsider some of who I am and where I come from. Plus there are a lot of things that didn’t fit into the day to day part of the project that I still want to share. So, over the last few months I’ve been going over Billy Joel’s career again, and writing about it all over again. This next phase will see the light of day eventually, in some form, because I just can’t get away from this thing…not that I want to.

Thank you again for being a part of this thing. See you again soon.
