Billy, Don't Be a Singer

Whereas I work in cube-land,
and whereas my cube-neighbor listens to LITE radio,
and whereas I've done my time in Joel (it's like in jail but worse),
whereas she's always a woman to him,
let it be acclaimed that the song would be better if she was a woman 110%.
Then it might still be cliché-ridden, but it might be 10% less piffle.

Obviously you haven't done enough time in 'Joel'. Get back in harness and apply yourself this time. If 'She's Always A Woman' ( not 'Often A Woman', or 'Frequently A Woman', or 'Almost A Woman' ) then she's already pretty god- damned consistent, isn't she? The only "piffle" here is your narcissistic drivel. Remove your hand from your penis and write this 1000 times - "Without the middle of my brow, my head would collapse".

Wow anon, tell George how you really feel.

(George, how cool is it to have Billy himself as one of your readers?)

Anyhow, as pablum-ish as that song is, I'll take it over any of the pontificating lecture-pop he doled out from the 80s through . . . well, did he ever stop?

So if Rickey does enough time in 'Joel' as anonymous suggests, will he finally appreciate the musical tour de force that is "Uptown Girl"? Argh, it still kills Rickey that this hack was the last musician to perform a concert at Shea...

Who knew Billy Joel fans were so rabid?

If Rickey had an intellect, or even a sense of humor, he might actually appreciate how brilliantly tongue-in-cheek a musical tour de force 'Uptown Girl' actually is. But since he has neither, it's probably best that Joel's Shea concerts are "killing" him. Suffer, you insufferable twit.

"Play us the troll you're the anonymous commenter man" is from Sag Harbor, if my counter can be trusted, so it might be Mr. Joel.

I guess we would know if he had fallen off the wagon again--there would have been some horrible noise from Long Island.

Anon, get rid of that comma and add an "a."

Then they answer would be "no idea."

George, get rid of 'they' and replace it with 'the'. Then you won't write like a Mississippi cracker talks.

Sorry, I proofread the same way Joel writes and performs.

Uh, no, you don't. Proofreading is to writing and performing as repairing is to inventing. Don't overestimate yourself so much, laddie. You're way out of your league.

Don't overestimate yourself so much, laddie.

Damn, this is getting mighty confusing George! I though I knew where things stood here, even with a trollish visit from Billy Joel, attacking your readership & your writing.

But now that Sean Connery showed up also, I think my head could explode.
