354 I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY, THIS IS MY LIFE

*sings* I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU SAY ANYMORE , THIS IS MY LIFE. (Come on! Sing it!)

52nd Street is the sixth album from Billy Joel (1978) and the first of four to hit the charts. It’s home to “Big Shot,” “Honesty,” and “My Life.” Those are also the first three songs, in that order. It’s hard not to dance at your desk while writing a post about how meh The Yardbirds were. The album scored Joel two Grammy wins (Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance - Male) and “Honesty” was nominated for Song of the Year.

It’s Billy Joel. It’s fun. Yeah, sure, there’s a song or two I could skip over but overall, I enjoyed it.
