IMGP0154“You may never understand how the stranger is inspired …”  (Billy Joel, “The Stranger”)

Who can fully decode, explain, articulate what starts the fire burning in a Creative’s soul, let alone what feeds that fire for decades?

Here’s another ‘thing about me’:  Billy Joel’s music provided a generous portion of the soundtrack to my life in college and marriage, especially the early years.  My roommate freshman year at Marquette always laughed at this line from “Just the Way You Are”: “I don’t want clever conversation/I never want to work that hard/I just want someone I can talk to…”  

Maybe you can see why this video is such fun for me!  Top pop rockers!
