Spending A Year Trying To Like Billy Joel

Billy Joel is worth hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars, can crash expensive car after expensive car into various parts of Long Island, and rock Soviet Russia harder than anybody.  But here’s the rub: Billy Joel is the pop music equivalent of Rodney Dangerfield in that he really doesn’t get the respect he deserves as one of the greatest American songwriters of them all.

Some people get it, some people don’t.  But one person who is of the latter category wants to at least give Joel a chance; that’s where A Year Of Billy Joel comes in.  The Tumblr’s first stated goal is “To understand why Billy Joel has been so popular for so long,” but it also hopes to “Maybe, just maybe learn to love Billy Joel’s  music or at least grow to tolerate a few songs.”
