Anybody think anything other than 'The Stranger' is his best album?

Movin' Out
The Stranger
Just The Way You Are
Scenes From An Italian Restaurant
Vienna
Only The Good Die Young
She's Always A Woman

all on the same record!

Of course, his next-to-last record, Stormfront, is also one I would consider maybe his second best, overall...

We Didn't Start The Fire
The Downeaster "Alexa"
I Go To Extremes
Shameless
Leningrad
And So It Goes

all on the same record

Along with The Stranger, Glass Houses is a favorite of mine.

i don't think billy's changed his stage in 20 years. it still looks like the one i've seen him use every time... where the center goes down underneath the stage so that they can change piano's and shit.

My parents ran into him in the Hamptons a few times- supposedly he's a nice guy.

apparently i was at the same party as his daughter in the city once... so i was told, i didn't actually meet her, i think... i have no idea what she looks like

this was a fairly useless story, wasn't it?

She shouldn't have any problem getting a boyfriend if she doesn't have one already...she's got Christy Brinkley's looks and Billy Joel's money.

You think so? I don't think she's ugly, but I think she looks just like Billy!
