If billyjoelfan.com is anything to go by, Billy never played Oslo. Therefore he must have made the story up. (I'll agree the song is not his finest hour, but the strings are killer.)
Not a fan of this song.
Does anyone happen to know what inspired the lyrics to this song?
This is the most Beatles-sounding song I've ever heard that wasn't actually by the Beatles.
This is great! It reminds me so much of the Beatles- especially Yellow Submarine music
this has the be the worst billy joel song ive ever heard
