Soundtrack of a Lifetime - 2022 - Billy Joel

I listen to a lot of Billy Joel. You might say his songs are music to my ears. But more than anything I like the way he weaves the story of his middle-class upbringing into his songs. I can identify with his music.

Billy Joel of all the artists here on the Soundtrack probably has created the most entertaining videos. They not only have good sound, but an amusing story and great acting by a host of TV and movie stars. It all adds up to fun.

In today’s song/video Uptown Girl we find Billy, a downtown auto mechanic, singing about his high-class girlfriend, played by former wife Christy Brinkley. While Brinkley wasn’t the original inspiration for this song, she certainly fulfills the character role. She stars in several of his music videos.

The song was included on his 1983 album An Innocent Man. "Uptown Girl" reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks.

Billy Joel was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. In 2013 he was named a Kennedy Center honoree, and in 2014 received the Library of Congress’s Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.

Here is a fun music video for your pleasure. Uptown Girl.

I am not a huge fan of music, although I always love having it in the background.  I have enjoyed many songs from Billy Joel.
