I always thought the Johnny Ray in the song was the Pirates second baseman
Youngsters are far less likely to know Billy Joel than that guy on the half dollar. That Joel song is almost 25 freakin' years old.That Johnny Ray, he broke a million hearts in mono!
Sad to say I was rocking out to that song as a wee youngster.
Haha. I get it. I get jokes.
I had to study that song in 8th grade movie class (that and Coolio -- Gangsta's Paradise) so as a result I still have not been able to get the words out of my head
Subtle and kind of brilliant. Well done.
I'm barely older than that song and I think it is awesome! Made me a Joel fan for life!
