Billy Joel’s attempt at keeping up with the times- in this case New Wave. I like Billy Joel best as a pop singer. But the single went to #1 and so did the album Glass Houses. This was the second single from the album- and it did better than the first “You May Be Right’ peaked at #7. It was Billy Joel’s first #1- he would end up with three. I prefer his work up to and including The Stranger.
