Girls! Girls! Girls!- “Laura”- Billy Joel. “Laura” appeared on one of my favorite Billy Joel albums- 1982’s- The Nylon Curtain. An underrated Billy Joel album in my opinion- there were two hits on the album- “Pressure” #20 and “Allentown” #17. “Laura” was one of the great album tracks on that album- very Beatlesque. Disclosure- around this time- actually a little earlier I was crazy mad over a girl named Laura.
