"Get It Right the First Time"
The first seven songs on The Stranger almost read like the track listing to a Billy Joel greatest-hits album. Only the true hardcore Billy Joel fans, however, know the final two songs, beginning with "Get It Right the First Time." The simple tune about making a positive impression with a girl when you first meet isn't exactly radio fare, and he hasn't done it live a single time since the 1970s. Still, it's full of solid advice: "You get it right the next time/That's not the same thing/Gonna have to make the first time last."
