I Love Billy Joel

[ mood | pleased ]

About a year ago or so, I transcribed the introduction to Billy Joel's "The Stranger" for piano, bass, and whistle (as in a person whistling).  Today, I scanned it into the computer.  

My more recent projects with Muse are still in progress; don't worry.  I've started on "I Belong To You" as well as "Uprising", and may start "Falling Away With You" or "Endlessly" too, once the school year is over with.  And maybe, if I am somehow struck by lightning and become a genius overnight, I could do "Butterflies and Hurricanes".  Maybe.  

But anyway, here's "The Stranger", by Billy Joel.  Just the introduction.

Oh, and hello to the Billy Joel community!

Hello everyone I am Andrea and I'm almost 19 years old...not that it really matters how old I am but whatever haha. Just thought I'd leave a comment here. I'm new to the world of livejournal. I am a big Billy Joel fan. I'm not really sure how I became a fan but I love his music. I have the tendency to call his music my happy music hehe. Well, anyways drop me a line because I would love to meet new people and make new friends!

hi everyone!

i just wanted to introduce myself since i'm a newbie around here... my name is brooke, im 18 years old and from new york. and like you guys, i'm a huge billy joel fan. i've loved him since i was a little kid. my brother and sister in law got me his box set "my lives" for christmas and it is pretty much the coolest thing ever. there are so many awesome alternate versions of songs, demos he never released and live verisions of classics. and i am newly obessed with his music. when i was a youngin' my favorite billy songs were we didnt start the fire, only the good die young and river of dreams. Now....hmm...i <3 all his stuff but i think some of my top choices are and so it goes, summer highland falls (i actually went to high school in highland falls :D), miami 2017 (there's a demo verison on my lives that is just billy and the piano...so so good!!!) and cross to bear (i dont think it was ever released...its on my lives too :-P)

alright, so i think i'm done for now...


*Say goodbye to the Oldies but goodies
'Cause the good ole days weren't always good
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems...*

Just thought I'd check back in on the Billy fans... that rose tattoo was such awesomeness.

There's a boy at my new school who has been obsessing over me for about two months now. I've been desperately trying to avoid him and not let him know anything about me, but ever since he found out that I'm a Billy Joel fan he's doubly sure that we're soulmates. He's been writing me notes filled with Billy lyrics, which is really getting embarassing. But he has great taste in music, I have to give him that! ~Misty

Hey! Remember me? I'm out of the boarding school for six hours, so I'm posting! I see this comm has some new members. That's great! I can't wait to get back to the car and listen to Billy.

I decorated an entire wall of my room at school with Billy quotes. (The one from "Downeaster Alexa" is up there, because it's one of my new favorites.)

:) So, I'll be back next Saturday. I'll miss you guys, and I miss Billy like crazy! ~Misty

They're sharing a drink they call lonliness... but it's better than drinking alone.

[ mood | hot ]

Hey, everybody. I just wanted to write to say that I'm going to a boarding school out of town, and I won't have any internet access for a while. So I have to leave behind this lovely community! *starts crying, again* It might be a month or more before I can post again.

So, I'm gonna miss you- and I'm putting you on my friends list, Old Whatsername. :)

So, I guess this is good-bye... Say good-bye to Hollywood...

[ mood | confused ]

Today, I was decorating T-shirts, and I did one for Billy Joel. It was yellow, and on the front I wrote We didn't start the fire. Then, across the back, I wrote composedbybilly. Along the bottom hem I wrote the address for this community.

It actually looks really neat. :) I can't wait to wear it. Because I love Billy.

Don't Ask Me Why Lyrics

All the waiters in your grand cafe
Leave their tables when you blink
Every dog must have his everyday
Every drunk must have his drink
Don't wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don't ask me why

All your life you had to stand in line
Still you're standing on your feet
All your choices made you change your mind
Now your calender's complete
Don't wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don't ask me why

You can say the human heart
Is only make-believe
And I am only fighting fire with fire
But you are still a victim
Of the accidents you leave
As sure as I'm a victim of desire

All the servants in your new hotel
Throw their roses at your feet
Fool them all but baby I can tell
You're no stranger to the street
Don't ask for favors
Don't talk to strangers
Don't ask me why

Yesterday you were an only child
Now your ghosts have gone away
You can kill them in the classic style
Now you, "parlez vous francais"
Don't look for answers
You took your chances
Don't ask me why
Don't ask me why

MY Battle of the Lyrics [10 Feb 2005|05:31am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

OK then, I pretty much missed that battle, so I'll start my own. You finish.
