Billy Joel

Billy Joel

In the Seventies and Eighties, Billy Joel was rivaled only by Elton John as a piano-pounding hit machine. Joel has tried his hand at rock & roll, new wave, hard-edged dance fare, 1960s nostalgia, and political statements. The through line in his music is a melodicism derived from Tin Pan Alley and the Beatles. He's a bard of everyday suburban dream and disappointment, and his forte is the romantic ballad, epitomized by his signature tune, "Just the Way You Are."
