Let's forget about all the silly hit singles Billy Joel had during the late 70's and into the 80's.  Might be tough since they are in our psyches in the most irritating and unpleasant ways thanks to our good friends at hit radio.  But TRY!  At one point, a long time ago, he made very original, thought provoking music.  Today's Vault selection is proof.  80% if I remember right.  Captain Jack, around 5:20pm.  Out of town?  Listen live on-line.
