Shut the fuck up, you're the piano man

There are issues which, though they should by any reasonable estimation have been settled long ago, are still being debated nearly into the second decade of the 21st century. In our world today, when we can literally transmit information at the speed of light, when we are as far removed from our primitive ancestors as the Earth is from Sirius, we are still debating the right and wrong, the false and true, of topics that should have been laid to rest when the lingua franca of the human race was savage grunting and frenetic arm-waving. Primary among these is this question: “Is William Martin Joel the worst popular musician in all of recorded history, or is he not?” The answer – a yes so resounding that you pray it will deafen you rather than leave the slightest chance you will have to hear “Uptown Girl” one more time – seems as obvious as gravitation, and yet there are those who contest its truth even as I commit it now to eternal, unchanged electrons.

So I’m going to settle it.Collapse )

It's posts like these that make me want to stuff the cats in the car and take a one-way road trip to San Antonio.

I absolutely endorse every word written about Billy Joel here. After being exposed to his utterly horrid sound for thirty - plus years against my will (in supermarkets, dentist offices, etc.) I am jazzed by any well written trashing of this lame ass whose music I have always considered a personal insult.
I still do not remember And So It Goes. You have failed to make me want to shoot myself. I win.
