Beneath the Melody Ep 4 – “Piano Man”


On this episode of Beneath the Melody, I am digging beneath the lyrics of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”. By doing this, I will show the listeners the true meaning of the lyrics and message Billy is trying to portray throughout the song. I discuss how the setting takes place in a New York Bar where Billy Joel used to play at when still trying to make a name for himself. In the song, he discusses the usual crowd and what each person aspired for in life.
