But what got me thinking about Billy Joel lately was hearing Bruno Mars sing about throwing his "hand in his pants" in "The Lazy Song,"* which has apparently been playing on loop at the radio stations around here. No matter what time of day, when I hear that lyric, I will always think of this Billy Joel song:
It's definitely one of my favorites. I also can never help but laugh when he sings the line, "But if I go cold I won't get sold; I'll get put in the back in the discount rack, like another can of beans" because a few years ago B bought a Billy Joel cassette tape for 50¢ at a thrift shop (yes, he still has a car that plays cassette tapes). Now, I don't think Billy has really gone cold, but that format certainly has. And I didn't see any cans of beans around.
