The Piano Man

I discovered Billy Joel some time ago, although I don't know why I had always associated him with the romantic ballad. Indeed, most of you have been surely captivated by one of his best known songs, She's Always A Woman, which has even appeared on some ads soundtrack (at least in Italy and Spain - click here -).

It was my friend Juan (AGAIN) who, knowing my passion for the sound of teh banjo, sent me this song that remains in my head for some months now and doesn't want to leave.

This is the live version, which differs slightly from the previous one. For me the banjo on the album version works much better than the sax. What do you think? Ahhh, there's just one more thing: How can he talk so fast with gum in his mouth?
