In the eighties I really loved Billy Joel. We all listened to his music as a family and on our own… on high rotation. His shinny, blue fold-out vinyl album got quite the work out in our house! He was a supremely talented musician and he was married to one of the most beautiful women in the world. He seemed to have it all.
The nineties hit and he somehow fell out of favour. I really couldn’t listen to him any more… when I heard one of his songs on the radio I had to switch stations.
Now 20 to 30 years later I’ve noticed his music creeping back into radio playlists and I’ve found myself happily singing along… I’m not about to put Piano Man on repeat for a day… but I have come back around to loving the talent that is Billy Joel 😉
