#TBT Throwback Thursday – Billy Joel – Big Shot

From YouTube – In 1978, Billy Joel released his album 52nd Street, which won two Grammy Awards for ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Male Pop Vocal Performance’. Watch the official music video for ‘Big Shot’, which became a Top 20 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.

I heard this song this morning on the radio on my way into work and it got me going. Billy Joel is one of the great American rock stars. His sound is distinctive and very New York.

Flashback Friday – “We Didn’t Start The Fire” from Billy Joel

With all the stuff going on lately this flashback to the 1980’s seems to be appropriate. A lot of conflict is going on that were started by others and have continued through other generations. This song speaks volumes about the world we live in, past and present. It seems more current than ever. Billy Joel has it right with this one.
