Billy_Joel_-_Piano_Man#1 – Billy Joel – “Piano Man” – (1973)

Man, could Billy Joel ever write some music. This is Joel’s signature song and he has become the Piano Man. It only reached #25 on the Hot 100, but it was his breakthrough hit and has become a legendary song that almost everyone knows some lyrics to. And the lyrics are brilliant, telling a complete story and setting a scene like few other songs can. It’s amazing. And yes, that album cover is kind of creepy.
