Not this one!
This is one of those songs that's so abysmally bad, it's hilarious. I turn it up whenever it comes on.
This is one of those songs that's so bad it's practically a crime against humanity.
As a kid, I was stymied by the line "they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar and say man, what are you doing here". I had never heard the word "bread" used as a slang term for money, so I pictured Billy Joel playing piano with a jar full of dinner rolls on top of it. I assumed he ate them because he was a broke musician. I like my version of the song much better than the actual one.
I am fortunate enough to have not heard this thing deployed in anger at a live crowd. So sorry I had to post this…
Ok, now I need to kick a puppy through a woodchipper….
