Because Friday night is Music Night: allez les bleus …

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. We all have our guilty pleasures. I admit that one of mine is Billy Joel. He’s never been the coolest name but he’s written and recorded some cracking tunes, like this waltz, a collection of stories in song. He’s a funny bloke too.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend, particularly the French pack. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

  1. ahh paul ya beat me too it good night saignon

    this is how america is supposed to be, with normal people have a bottle of wine
    culture, music, arts, poetry, food, games, family, laughing , sex !

  2. I’ve never really been a Billy Joel fan but I quite like that tune.

    Here’s one from me to lift the spirits. F*** knows we need it.

  3. catchy DaveA , like it , funny name Wang Chung , I hope Hunter Biden wasn’t part of it
    you know the #crimefamily .. ( snigger )

  4. I was going to post (maybe) my favourite Billy Joel song, “Vienna”. It’s magnificent, but I couldn’t find a video with decent visuals.

  5. I wouldn’t say I was keen on any of the Billy Idol tunes, but your one Paul, was just depressing. Out these three tunes, Kurt wins.

  6. Goodye Saigon is depressing? It’s about youth, comradeship, respect and fear.

    Good choice Dave. I’ll take 100/1 that you love this:

    No?

  7. I’m not a huge Billy Joel fan, but I’ve always been fond of this song. When I was away from home for some years, it got to me.

  8. Billy Joel pulled off a great trick. He’s a massive Beatles fan. They turned him on to music and were always his favourite band. You can hear it. Paul McCartney is in all these songs. The influence is so clear. But The Beatles mashed up American rock n roll and R&B, and Billy Joel mashed up The Beatles and in doing that he became a quintessential New York sound.

  9. This is the slow movement from Mozart piano concerto 11. Guaranteed to get your blood pressure down to a safe level, or your money back:

  10. Paul

    Fox On The run, that’s a blast from the past mate my dad used to love that track.

    Good choice Dave. I’ll take 100/1 that you love this:

    Whenever you suggest a piece of music you think I’d like, I click on it and find that it’s already in my YouTube music library. When it comes to you knowing my taste in music, it’s like we’re in the f****** matrix mate. 😁

  11. Goodye Saigon is depressing? It’s about youth, comradeship, respect and fear.

    As usual I probably didn’t explain myself very well.
    I totally agree the song is well-written, with beautiful meaningful lyrics.
    I just meant the tune is depressing, at least for my tastes.
    There are some fantastic pieces of music out there with sad tunes, such as Kate Bush’s This woman’s work. But I just can’t listen to them.

  12. Phantom’s Billy Joel tune may have just pipped Kurt to the post.

    Billy Joel was a young man when we first started posting his videos here. 😁

  13. Peter,

    This is the slow movement from Mozart piano concerto 11.

    Beautiful as always Peter.

    This is one of my favourite pieces of relaxing music.
    There are three ladies and a man standing near the front of the church singing.
    Are they very small or is he a giant?

  14. I just meant the tune is depressing, at least for my tastes.

    Okay, fair comment. Each to their own

    It’s like we’re in the f****** matrix mate. 😁

    Get you lugholes round this then. Brilliant stuff:

    Kate Bush you say? You know that like Pete her mother was Irish?:

    Mná na hÉireann (Women of Ireland)

  15. Paul.

    Get you lugholes round this then. Brilliant stuff:

    I haven’t heard that track for ages. Nice one.

    I’ve never heard the Kate Bush track you posted. It’s really beautiful. Cheers.

  16. Billy Joel is one of my favorite entertainers, I’ve seen him perform a dozen times at the least, I even paid to see him rather than work the concert a couple of times.

    The first show I saw him at was the old Sectrum in Philly. He had 3 Pianos on the stage including one behind the curtain at the back of the stage. They use to sell obstructed seat tickets where you actually behind the stage and you couldn’t see the artist he had a piano put back there and played 2 songs just for them.

    His catalogue contains a ton of favorites, Phantom played one of them as I knew he would. Here are a couple of more.

  17. 2 more

    and I could go on all day with songs of his that are tied to a 1000 memories in my life.

  18. Just came across this the other day, the riff on this is superb:

    One guy apparently. Insanely talented.
