Out 19 2008, 18h04 por breizh_parisIeri al concerto di Elio e oggi in una reclame di calze... Billy Joel is everywhere...
She's Always a Woman
She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes.
And she can ruin your faith with her casual lies.
And she only reveals what she wants you to see.
She hides like a child, but she's always a woman to me.
She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you.
She can ask for the truth but she'll never believe.
And she'll take what you'll give her as long as it's free.
Yeah, she steals like a thief, but she's always a woman to me.
Oooh, she takes care of herself.
She can wait if she wants, she's ahead of her time.
Oooooh, and she never gives out, and she never gives in,
she just changes her mind.
And she'll promise you more than the Garden of Eden.
And she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding.
But she'll bring out the best and the worst you can be.
Blame it all on yourself, cause she's always a woman to me.

Jul 30 2008, 15h42 por JoeIsListeningUpdated 8/5/08: Changed one tag and added info about the rating system.
Okay, thanks to a recent Woot purchase, I have upgraded from my first generation iPod Shuffle to a 5.5th Generation iPod with 30 G's of space. It's not enough for my entire collection, but since I listen mostly to shuffled songs, I set up a 1 Gig playlist of random selections and filled the rest of it with my 15 Favorite Albums and the Top Artists from my Last.fm charts, along with some favorite Genre material.
Now it is precipitating my doing a couple of things that I have meant to do for a while. The first of these is a new Listening Project, called "The Great Unrated." The object here is to take all of my songs without a star rating and give them one. I've been working on it during casual listening at home (when I think to look at the recently played songs to see which were unrated), but haven't really put a dent in it. But since the regular iPod gives you the capacity to add or change a rating while listening, the opportunity was ripe.
Mai 11 2007, 17h07 por durrilI went to see Billy Joel on May 9th. I had considered seeing Peter Bjorn and John instead, but the Billy Joel tickets were free and closer to my home the the PBJ show. The real conflict was whether to catch something on the way up or on the way down. I'm glad I went to Billy Joel.
Billy Joel was at his prime when my parent's were my age. I thought I couldn't claim him as my own. He was theirs. Wednesday night, I claimed him as my own.
Joel looked like one of theirs at his show. His grizzly facial hair couldn't look irreverant because his face was a bit too round. His face had more angular form when I was a kid. He still had youth.
He still has a twinkle to his eye despite his age. He still performs with the gusto of a devilish good guy, the bad boy of the pack. He still has a strong air of daring. He's still a rock star. His attitude rolled over any age barriers.
I didn't even know he sang Only the Good Die Young, She's Always a Woman, Tell Her About It or My Life. …

A big all-time-favorite of mine. I discovered this song quite accidentally, when the only pieces I knew from Billy Joel were Uptown Girl and She's Always a Woman.
This song has the cheerful, childish and funny character that i look for in many artists. I guess that when somebody really plays an instrument, plays with it also. And that's what I feel with this incredible song.
The name, Root Beer Rag, also refers to my favorite drink, which I can't find in my country and remains as one of the sweetest memories of the time I lived in Canada. I'm getting too romantic... ;).
Fev 9 2007, 20h10 por laurak23Wed 7 Feb – Billy Joel
(Okay, so during the show I quickly took down the setlist, plus a few funny quips (Billy really was hilarious, I must say) and embellished it on the way home/here at my dorm. Also, Mollie is my roommate, who went with me.)
There was a screen, not on the sides, but on the little thing hanging down. The ony thing was there was a big light fixture right in the middle of it. So I couldn't really see him on it, but sometimes could catch a glimpse of his profile.
Well, before the show really started, there was some classical type music playing and everyone cheered. All the lights went out and then when they came back on the piano was on the stage and there was Billy!
1. Prelude/Angry Young Man ~ Holy shit his hands are fast. (His wife is so lucky. ^_^) I love this song so much.
2. My Life ~ *happy sigh* I simply adore this song.
He welcomed us all, and gestured toward us, in the way up there seats and said "I just want to thank you for buying the shitty seats. …

Dez 29 2005, 21h34 por OmniusHere's another mix CD I made.
As of this writing, I'm listening to my 9164th song: Etta James' "At Last". Hope to hit 10,000 very soon, and I will definitely make it memorable; but what will it be? Every You Every Me? Does He Love You? Bohemian Rhapsody? Soco Amaretto Lime? existentialism on prom night? Something by Taking Back Sunday, Radiohead, or Muse? Ah, we'll see. It'll probably end up being something stupid, like Ride of the Valkyries or Barbara Ann (not that those song's are stupid; just that they don't have as much meaning to me as the other songs).
Anyway, on to the mix CD. Also, I'm listening to my 9165th song: Ruled by Secrecy. And now, I'm listening to song #9166: sunrise highway (your name here).
1. Brown Park
3. Brighter Than Sunshine
6. It's Going to Get Worse Before It Gets Better
7. Your Song
8. The Luckiest
10. She's Always a Woman
11. Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)
