Billy Joel//It's Still Rock and Roll to Me

I sure have been going retro this week. Admit it, you love it.

Without giving too much away, Palmyra had a rehearsal last night and we decided on a last minute cover. That cover brought this song to mind.

I love Billy Joel. I love this song. I love this song’s guitar tone. It’s a great addition to any driving mix. I could say a whole lot more about it, if I wasn’t totally fried right now, but I am, so I won’t. Just sit back, imagine it’s 1980 and you’re driving around Long Island wearing some old tab collars in a car with white wall tires. Hot.

It's the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways
It's still rock & roll to me.
Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new sound
Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me

My dad found Glass Houses in a one dollar bin outside a record shop. Definitely a different Billy Joel than from what people heard on The Stranger and 52nd Street.
