Scenes From and Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel is one of the greatest songs in pop music and shows off Billy Joel’s immense story telling and song writing genius. It is so great that it never made into my personal Billy Joel ban.
I’m going to include The Piano Man by Joel. Another song of his I could always listen to. A sing-a-long that became a yuppie theme song. Not Joel’s best but another example of the meeting point between story telling and song writing.
