When this came out, there was no Google. I burned up the pages of my Encyclopedia Britannica figuring out half of what he was singing about.
Better than any history class.
But when I hear this song, I think mostly of my friend Ginger, who loves Billy Joel. I wish someone would make an updated version for everything that’s happened in the 90’s and the aughts.
I always wanted to like this song. For some reason I always thought that I SHOULD like this song. Alas…I never did.
I remember you singing this song around the house because you were trying to learn the words before Ginger. I think you both learned them in one day.
