Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post in 2 days you will die. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This so scary because it actually works.
Perfect wedding song
When this song starts it sounds like tiny dancers
I love her just the way she is...
Renee will u marry me
I love princess renee
I love Billy Joel, but he didn't write many of his own songs.
One of Billy's greatest! Awesome

This version sounds like it was recorded after hes been drinking; having a difficult time keeping the lyrics up with the music.

I love Billy Joel's piano in all of his songs.

shirlkino

stamptravele r
the lyrics are missing compared to what he sings
Robert, just click your button. You won't have to listen to it. I on the other hand, love it!

Not Corny or Cheesy if you are really in love.. I love Billy.. and the Stranger was and still is a classic album..
to Jimmy Arbour: i'm pretty sure the sax player on The Stranger album was Richie Cannata, and i would assume that his also him playing it on this version

Amazing voice and talent! Great version of this song...
I hate that song and the singer- please NEVER play it again.
....alls can add to this collection of comments IS.....

Billy's voice in '77 sounds fresh, rested and ready. Tight, controlled vibrato. Oui33, he sounds right on pitch to me. And the sax solo works too.

That is all.

I have mixed feelings on this tune - it's very schmalzie and corny - I mean, Billy wont even play it in concert anymore. I know Liberty DeVitto was agenst recording it, but it is a catchy tune regardless. I AM glad he didn't record too many like this one - "Always a Woman" is far better ! Rock on Billy Joel; New York's favorite son !

Who is the sax player on this version? I prefer the original because Phil Woods plays the sax solo...this cat on this version sounds like a mediocre high school player.
just re-discovere d this song and love it

schlesinger6 1 8 2 2 : Yeah, I'm with ya on that--I much prefer the original. This version sounds flat.

I think this is a live version of this song. The original greatest hits album is the original studio recording. It's still great, I was just expecting the studio version when this song came on.
I like the words. He is telling her, he likes her the way the way she is. That is what my husband told me when we first me.
