# 14 in den USA 1979, irgendwie nie ganz mein Fall, obwohl das Thema schon interessant wäre.
****
...sehr gut...

oh yeah, one of the great ones
****
Nicht eines seiner stärksten Lieder.

geht live voll ab
****
Knapp ein 4 !..... er hat viel mehr bessern songs....
*****
würd ich auch gern live sehn
...noch so was tolles...
****
Die rockende Seele Billy Joels deutlich zum Ausdruck bringender Song, der die ansonsten ansprechend gepflegte Melodik des Entertainers etwas vermissen lässt. Ich verwerfe allerdings meinen ursprünglichen Plan, unter die nette 4 zu tauchen, da nach wiederholtem Hinhören die solide Produktionsqualität (mit gewissen Anlehnungen an "härtere" Freddie Mercury-Werke) durchaus zum Ausdruck kommt; geniesst trotzdem keine Priorität.
***
mässig, er hat wesentlich Besseres
****
Bei Elton John (Bennie & The Jets) geklaut. Etwas offensichtlich. Trotzdem, mir gefallen solche Stücke.
*****
sehr guter track! war vorallem live ein big shot!
*****
Zickig!
*****
Überhaupt nicht schlecht. Rockt ordentlich, wenn auch mit etwas verzögerten Synkopen, die das Tempo des Songs etwas bremsen. Aber ein kritischer Text über den fatalen amerikanischen Traum-Drang, Superstar werden zu müssen.
*****
Gesellschaftskritischer Text verpackt in geniale Musik. Der Song rockt, zudem ganz stark (-mit viel bitterer Ironie in der Stimme-) vorgetragen von Billy Joel.
****
Eine gute Nummer vom Mann aus Long Island.
****
▓ Leuke Rockplaat van de inmiddels 58 jarige Amerikaanse pianist, zanger & tekstschrijver "William Martin (Billy) Joel" uit 1978 !!! Was een klein succesje in Amerika, in Holland konden we het plaatje beluisteren op zijn album "52nd Street", die zelfs nog iets langer duurde dan de single !!!
****
Interessant. Ziemlich kratzig.
**
Unschliffig und konzeptlos...schwache Nummer vom Piano Man. 2+
******
Geil!
*****
sehr sehr gut
******
er kann nicht nur Balladen
***
... er sollte lieber bei den Balladen bleiben ... hört sich sehr bemüht an ...
**
langweilig
****
Buena.
****
Peaked at #91 in Australia, 1979.
****
gut rockendes, kreativ vorgetragenes Stück aus den späten 70er, nettes Saxspiel zwischendurch – 4+...
*****
Ja, ein schwungvoller, aufgestellter Auftakt zu "52nd Street"...
*****
klasse Nummer, speziell der Refrain hat es mir angetan in seiner Schwere.
****
This is a great track very catchy.

2 weeks Israeli top 10. Israel#9.

US#14.

... ganz nett ...
****
...gefällt mir...
*****
Druckvoll und rockig.
****
4 stars
*
Vervelend.
****
...so 'big' finde ich diesen 'shot' jetzt auch wieder nicht...
*****
ordentliche Nummer

CDN: #13, 1979
USA: #14, 1979
****
Mit dem Titel tu ich mich schwer, ich finde die eindeutig besseren Singles aus dem "52nd Street" Album waren "My Life" und "Honesty"!
****
Recht gute Nummer.
****

Er hatte einige bessere Singles als diese hier.
