The man's still got it...

I first fell in love with Billy Joel's music when I was 17 and bought a copy of his album 'The Stranger' in the only record shop of the small town where I grew up. His music has stayed with me over the years, some of the tracks gaining extra resonance as part of the soundtrack of my life. In the 1980's I saw him live at Wembley and he was every bit as good as I had hoped.

I've just found this more recent video of my favourite Billy Joel song on YouTube. It doesn't say when it was recorded, but he can still sing and it still makes me cry.

Lovely song. But my favourite of his is 'She's Always A Woman'. That one always makes me cry!

I love that one too, Helen. They both have special memories for me, but this one was just a little bit more special :)

A used to like Billy Joel too. I'm not sure I still have the same feelings towards him these days, but I can see what you mean.

CJ, I'm just impressed at how similar his voice still sounds as he ages.
