The Piano Man

By Billy Jeol. How good is this song!

It was yet another mundane day at work. Until this song come on the radio. I swear I have heard this song (more than once) before, but it beats me why I couldn't feel the magic in this song until today. It seemed like a good song until it got to the line "Yes, they are sharing a drink they call loneliness but it's better than drinking alone". Wow! That hit me like a dash of cold water. Made me sit up and take notice. The more I listen to this song, the more I empathize with and root for all the characters in the song whose lives are filled with disappointments, regrets and failures.

Sing us a song, piano man. You are my latest addiction.
