Just The Way You Are – Billy Joel
Maybe you have to be very old, like me, to appreciate this. Or maybe not. My friend Adele sent it to me and appended the comment that she’s a softie. Well, listening to this, who wouldn’t be?
It’s Billy Joel when very young, before we realised exactly who and what he was, singing one of his early hits, Just The Way You Are, one of the greatest pop songs of all time, everybody’s choice for the first dance at their wedding. Or it was, a long time ago. This recording is from The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1978. And does anyone know who that sensational tenor sax player is?
The old songs are the best and this one still works for this old softie.
