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.
Jan 1 2008, 17h28 por atis-phantasaIt's January 1st, 4 PM (when I started writing) and I woke up three hours ago. The past six days I've been addicted to the Top 2000, which ended 16 hours ago. The perfect time for a journal entry.
In the Top 2000 (on the Dutch radio) the best songs of all times are presented. Although some of them are really crap, there are also many very good ones. The unfortunate thing is, I know hardly any tracks by title or artist. Even though I've had the entire list lying in front of me all the time, I got surprised by most of the tracks.
Some surprises were good, some bad, and a few them really amazed me. Those were the songs I knew since I was a little child. And because I was so young, I can't remember any of those artists or track titles. Trying to sing it or describing its melody, I've tried to find out what they were called, but I hardly ever succeeded in that.
But then, somewhere in the last six days of the year, some of those tracks show up in the Top 2000. …
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. …
Abr 27 2007, 0h27 por welkinhawki just got back into town ... had an aaaaamazing trip ... Billy Joel was so effing brilliant, there are no words for how great the show was, i still feel a bit giddy thinking of it ... Belleville was lovely and Loyalist looked amazing, can't wait to move there in the fall ... a little peeved at Air Canada, they lost some of my luggage, apparently it's on the next plane and i should have it later tonight, but i'm praying it wasn't nicked off the belt cos my music and my camera were in that bag :(
PS: more Billy Joel stuff, the set list:
-Angry Young Man: perfect intro to kick off the night.
-My Life: at this point i realized that i was surrounded by non-fans who didn't even knew the lyrics to his better known songs.
-The Entertainer: i love the synth bit in this song.
-Vienna: my favourite billy tune ever (well, Summer Highland Falls probably ties it), i nearly cried when it was over.
-Zanzibar: a new favourite, this tune has a killer trumpet solo.

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. …
