Re: Favorite Billy Joel song?

Tough one.  Piano Man will always come to mind, but the album I played until it was Swiss cheese was 52nd Street (1978).

 

What a lineup...

 

Side one:

"Big Shot" 

"Honesty" 

"My Life" 

"Zanzibar" 

 

Side two:

"Stiletto" 

"Rosalinda's Eyes" 

"Half a Mile Away" 

"Until the Night" 

"52nd Street" 

 

Not one loser song on that album.

River Of Dreams

 

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
To the river so deep

 

I must be looking for something
Something sacred I lost
But the river is wide

And it's too hard to cross

 

Even though I know the river is wide
I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore
I try to cross to the opposite side
So I can finally find out what I've been looking for

 

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the valley of fear
To a river so deep

 

I've been searching for something
Taken out of my soul
Something I'd never lose
Something somebody stole

 

I don't know why I go walking at night

But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life
Until I find what it is that I've been looking for

 

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the jungle of doubt
To a river so deep

 

I know I'm searching for something
Something so undefined
That it can only be seen
By the eyes of the blind

In the middle of the night

 

I'm not sure about a life after this
God knows I've never been a spiritual man
Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river
That runs to the promised land

 

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth
To the river so deep

 

We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Too many to count!!!  My favorite singer ever!!  Among the many; Until the Night, A Matter of Trust, and of course, Piano Man.

 

New York State of Mind, Downeaster Alexa, Lullabye, and about a thousand others...

Billy Joel alters lyrics of "Sweet Caroline" for coronavirus.  (Just hit skip ads at beginning).

If Billy sings it - I love it.

Can't choose a favorite.
