Yeah i'm a little confused about the parenthetical and the title normally that when that was used over the years it was a subtitle. Because that's what people knew it as For instance the song escaped by rupert holmes is known as the pinochle lada saw With the pina colada part in parentheses because if someone went to the store that's how they were able to tell the clerk what they wanted to buy. No it has escape. so i'm unclear as to why the song has anthony song in parentheses because that's not the part i would remember of like it's backwards. Maybe maybe it originally started out being called anthony song. Then he thought you know what it's called moving out and left it there. I guess who knows but it's a it's joel's rip on on that or him expressing his outright disgust of people that work two jobs and beat themselves in the ground so just so they can move up. Yeah in the strata of society. And even then i mean i feel like he talks about all the other people. Anthony wants to move up in society. He wants to work hard and make his life better. But at the same time you describe all these other people sergeant o'leary in his mom who probably tried to do the same thing. It didn't really go anywhere right. You know they're all stuck in that same repeating job over and over and over again. Well the implication is that sergeant o'leary works two jobs so he can afford a cadillac but he so beat up from working two jobs that he can't drive it but he can polish. The fenders can keep it clean and look at it and this is really emblematic of dole's work. It's he has a knack for. the cinematic. written is a narrative a lot of his work.

"billy joel" Discussed on The Story Song Podcast
"If what, if we hadn't grown up with it? What would what would our opinion? It is the idea that he the way he writes much like much like Bruce Springsteen, or this some other folks. There's one person that's on the tip of my tongue and I can't remember. What the example I want to use his but he all of his songs, most of his songs have so many references and and evoked the sense of the place they are from It's obviously he's going to have a larger footprint and a larger He's influence on on this area just because you identify with it so much more if you're in the area right right so I think I think that has a lot to do with it. He's not writing just sort of more generic, even New York based songs. He's writing a lot about specifically long island in a lot of his songs or if he does write about New York, these talking about very specific places in New, York I'm in New York state of mind. He talks about things that people in new outside of New York probably wouldn't know what it is. I mean, like my favorite. My favorite New, York Song his allentown. Okay they're not all about. It several. Northeast kind of feel to it. It's New York New Jersey Connecticut Pennsylvania. Class yeah but again and it's not just like feels like New York like authentically New York no he literally like I mean we talked about the parkway diner is a real place I. Know that is a real place because to be gay billy Joel growing up a long island my aunt went to. High School with Billy. Joel. He was older than she was they were not friends, but they did attend high school at the same time. My mother who obviously is were younger. The My aunt you know didn't didn't wasn't around for Billy Joel. But like every time we hear the songs by the Parkway Diners Replacement Your father and I hung out there all the time like. That's the thing Billy Joel has a software you mentioned channel thirteen right doesn't mean anything to anyone outside of the New York area The New York. State PBS yes. Sesame Street. So there you right. Right and and. That's that's the album version the single version they changed that line because they were like, no one's going to know what that means. So would they change All Your Life is Time magazine. That's right. So and everybody look everybody in New York has down Easter Alexa. Absolutely. That's right. We All New York everywhere fishermen ever New York is a piano man. Yeah we all went to Stalingrad. So it all fits. And nobody in the New York Metro area started the fire. So that's right. It was always burned also just to quickly correct myself. Paradise by the Dashboard, light reached number thirty, nine, hundred. Okay. That's forty. Just. I also WANNA say my goal not for nothing. I think that's might be a little bit more enduring with the kind of people that we know. Let's just say that maybe people are more theatrical. Sweet sixteens. When we were younger that's all. I'm going to say so I don't know how. Familiar other people might be it's a classic rock song. Absolutely. Yeah. It's definitely a classic rock song the go to the bathroom. All right everybody here's a fifteen minute long song. I'M GONNA. Hit, the buffet. Here at this high school reunion. Okay. So. Let me just say that getting into this history as we often do there is a lot of history about Mr William. Joel. So I'm not going to go through all of it. I'll hit the the real quick highlights, and then I'm going to deep go deeper onto this song again, just because there's way too much over in a podcast a and then also be we may do billy Joel again in in the future. So I don't want to go through everything. Yeah. Well, it's always hard to do. Like a behind the story of a Megastar you know. He's at prolific Megastar Yeah he's had multiple phases of his career so. I'm going to talk mostly about this song but. I will say that. Billy Joel was born in Nineteen, forty nine in the Bronx and he grew up in Hicksville New York He dropped out of high school to pursue music, and after a few false starts, he signed to Columbia Solo artist in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two. The this song. Yes. I was just GonNa. Ask Making a joke GonNa say and that's all I heard about billy. Joel. EMBIID, already? Here. We are podcast about Billy Joel. So this song was the scenes from Italian restaurant was on the album, the stranger and released in nineteen. Seventy seven it it. was released. September nineteen seventy seven there's no billboard chart information because it was not released as a single. which is an easy. well, the jazz has a couple of pretty big singles on it, which I'm GonNa get you in a second so. So, on the stranger and when was released in eighteen seventy seven billy Joel had released two albums, for Columbia at the time and Columbia was considered was considering dropping him. His last album turns south had only reached one hundred and twenty two on the album charts. kind of weird album I could see that. turnstiles. Yeah. It's good. Good it's if I recall, it's kind of an ECLECTIC. Jealous Yeah. So Say Goodbye to Hollywood on that album. I think it's I think it's definitely an album certainly after billy Joel is a big star on people went back. Your mind is on that out Miami Young I haven't seen at the time. It was not obviously is not a big hit. and. So basically, all you need to know is that this point billy Joel's career is in a little bit of trouble like he he's possibly getting get dropped by Columbia So he he records the stranger and the stranger is the album that made billy Joel Billy Joel. And so it peaked at number two for two weeks on the album charts and it had four top forty singles just the way you are moving out. She's only women only the good die young. So again and Michael either you could see like where you know they're not. They're probably not going to release this like how long is the saga like four minutes like they already got their singles there find a good album a good album cut. The Stranger won the grammy for record of the year and just the way you are one of the. So the album was was generally well re well reviewed I believe. It also won a grammy.

I can't remember what the event was. It was Bonnaroo some other multiday festival like that. I had an artist bracelet but I was only going on one night to see some certain. I don't remember what it was. Billy Joel was headlining one or the other nights and I told my mom I could try to get that bracelet off and give it to her if she wanted to go see. Billy Joel thought that she would like that. A her response was and I quote no desire. That's do I had somebody do that with me. With Genesis I thought Genesis just universally liked by people of a certain age. A said the same thing. Oh something about how we were going to do genesis in an episode and she was like. Oh yeah they suck and I was like Whoa okay. I thought that you were just. It's like a prerequisite I honest to God. If you're over fifty I assume that you think billy Joel's awesome. It is a hard stereotype to not let yourself enough. You know what I'm saying. Yeah it's one of the things that you're going to have to always battle of just making that assumption persons above this age. They for sure like Billy Joel. This is going to be those episodes that people send their parents or your grandparents or your uncle this or your aunt.

Also it's billy Joel's peers are who billy. Joel's music is four. It's four people of his generation and the values that come with that the social norms that come with that are all very much in billy. Joel's music he's also got that thing. That generation has where they can't tell what's good now like Billy Joel things. The killers are a great band. He's talked about that before. Well Billy Joel's not GonNa like anybody better than him. He is one hundred percent. The Guy Never ever going to recommend you listen to something that we better something. He couldn't do himself so yes. Of course he likes the killers killers. They right right down. The middle of the road generic pop music. Maybe that sounds familiar to billy. Joel fans who is actually a fan of billy? Joel his point. It's a lot of people. I wasn't sure if we should come back with this episode or the clash episode because I think those are the two that we have recorded so far that are going to cause the biggest response people get in their feelings about billy. Joel talk some shit on twitter to kind of get a feel for people got mad. Man Billy Joel means something to a lot of people I feel like Bruce springsteen's going to be like that to where people have very tight much bigger level than this though guarded. Fuck you you. Don't you know what I mean? It's like a leather jacket on their heart. And if you fuck yeah. Did you just stain my fucking leather jacket? Heart you piece of Shit. The point of the song moving out is pretty much that the American dream does not exist and it's pointless to work hard just to be able to afford the shiny expensive things people by to impress their neighbors again. This says a lot more about billy Joel State of mind than it says about anything. As far as I can tell I have respect people that get rich and they just talked about being rich when people have a shit ton of money right songs like this is just fucking annoying. Did you know that Billy Joel was at Donald? Trump's wedding Malanje no. It's not surprising. What the fuck you get to write songs like this. I don't think he's a big fan of trump of president trump for the politician or anything. Sure come on man. The Guy who picks up my trash every week wasn't at Donald Trump's wedding yeah. I forgot to ask my bartender. The but I'm pretty sure she wasn't invited to Donald Trump's wedding if these people want to save up their money and buy a cadillac. Maybe you should shut the fuck up billy Joel. That isn't GonNa make you happy why I don't know dude. You have ten of them. So how many nights in a row could he sell out Madison Square Garden singing songs like this about blue collar people to blue collar people? The kid and the song says he's moving out but he never says what is big plan is. You'RE GONNA starve or freeze to death. Kid The lyrics and it seems such a waste of time if that's what it's all about. Mama if that's proven up moving out. Do you think this is all bullshit job and you're going to leave home. Wow I guess about the papers next year based on the message of the song. You'd think it'd be like I'm going to move into the basement fucking. Maybe this kid ended up going in washing dishes in an Italian restaurant somewhere. Maybe he's unwritten in the lines of scenes from an Italian restaurant a seven and a half minute long song that Billy Joel wrote. It's actually just three different songs that he didn't think we're good enough by themselves so he put them all into one song. And in some strange form of alchemy people brainwash themselves enough to think it was genius. I don't Oh wow. He took three different pieces of shit and now they are one amazing piece of Shit. Look at this shit. It's a bigger pile of shit now. He didn't even finish writing the individual pieces of the song. The Hook to one of the parts is just him going a wo- over and over again mass a very common theme and Billy Joel saw. This guy wants to be Elton John so bad it has to drive him up the wall. What is that called like a a musical term for that when you Because it is very common in Pop Music. What is it like when you go? La La la La Boo boo boo boo Blah Blah Blah Blah. Whatever like you just nonsense. Why I.

"The other side of that is piano man and the other thing about Panama is the whole point of the song is how Great Billy Joel is now. I know that if you pay attention to these lyrics the point of the song is billy. You're you're so great is funny. This song is about how everyone in the piano bars? Always coming up to him and tell him he's too good to be. They're playing for them. The owner of the bar needs him so much or else place would probably go out of business. Be An empty here the lyrics. It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday. And the manager gives me a smile. Because he knows that it's me they've been coming to see to forget about life for a while. Is this long limerick by the way and the piano. It sounds like a carnival and the microphone. Smells like a beer and they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar and say man. What are you doing here? The point of this song is you are so talented awesome. Joel the whole thing revolves around. Billy it really does. People are buying him drinks. We've referenced it a few times without explicitly stating it. If you're not familiar this song is supposed to be essentially a documentary about the period of time in which billy Joel got his record. Contract IS I stuff. Didn't sell well enough for that to seem like it might even continue to be a thing. We're all in the mood for a melody. Billy just not yours so he moved the hell to another city and got a job slumming in a piano bar for a while and then wrote this song and these are all supposed to be real people who really came into this bar so again go read these lyrics and think about the fact that this is a song about real people. Who are really like this Nashville. We're saying about piano bars. And it's really strange that people listen this song which attached to a nostalgic memory and people's brains because they didn't even invokes that in the first lyric of the song you that guy and black I think one of the worst things is when someone tries to copy our material from podcast. Tell someone about something we said. You'RE NOT GONNA get it right. It's just not going to be funny. You know so. I'm not going to attempt to relate any of this at all but if you hate the song piano man or you're just able to laugh at something funny about it. You should go look up piece. That Michael Ian Black wrote for the website makes Sweeney's I'll tell you the title of it what I would be thinking if I were Billy Joel driving to a holiday party where I knew there was going to be a piano. It's real annoying. How close billy Joel came to being a one hit wonder? Piano man was a top forty. Hit but it only made. It's a twenty five and then his neck singles tanked so it looked like he just came out of a piano bar scene and was gonNA LASHING. Pan Five minutes and everyone paying attention to him for doing something based on his true story. Or whatever. But you can't do this for real though so go back down his single. The entertainer barely made it into the top. Forty hit thirty four and his label was actually thinking about dropping him real fast for anyone listening to this. Who knows they hate billy Joel because of the hits and you've never gone any deeper than that. You should really go listen to the song the entertainer. 'cause it's probably the purest distillation of Billy Joel like this. Is Billy Joel Song? And the point of the songs to be all self aware and smart about himself and the music industry and his role in the music industry. One of the lines is. I won't be here another year if I don't stay on the charts that kind of thing I mean. It's almost like begging people I don't know like come on. Y'All how you gotTa don't fuck this up for me like keep by myself. Let me stay in detail. Guys come on known of the instrumentation on this song makes any sense. There are yes synthesizers. All over the place. Also a pedal steel guitar and a Banjo. For some reason. You throw enough shit at the wall and you gotta understand. This is a fan favorite song. This isn't some me picking the worst billy Joel Song Right. Even though that's what it would sound like to someone who's not a fan fans love this. This is what people like Billy Joel like about. Billy Joel is this. These are also people that like the song I don't man so but then he follows this up with the stranger which leaned super hard into the fuck it. I'm the street boring version of Elton John. Let's do this stranger. The only thing I think about that is that it was like a horrible horrible as kind of funny thing where like I said he used to say like you. Sit on your hand into a falls asleep. Yeah it's funny I had I heard this whole life but then it's actually in a movie. I think it's gone in sixty seconds. Okay James Cons Kid makes the joke maybe remember what his name is. Scott Caan maybe Yeah the stranger is where you sit on your hands until it falls asleep and then rub one out. Yeah feel like someone else's doing yeah thinking about that makes listening to the song. Stranger a lot more bearable makes it more enjoyable. Just terrible idea. Because it doesn't sound appealing only sounds including the song. Now the move. It just sounds appealing to people that maybe have had never had bad experiences or something. I don't know why as I have a lot of downtime in hotel rooms I mean I've tried it. It doesn't really do anything. Yeah this still my hand just asleep. This is awkward. It's just some dumb shit. You say to your friends when you were in tenth grade you know what I mean like one of US still hasn't hit puberty and you're trying to see if he'll laugh or not that kind of thing. I think if somebody were to say to you in a non joking manner like no. You really should do that. You would definitely think that person was completely inexperienced at life in general should try no really now right now in front of me here in the sleep. What's going on here? I cannot stress how important it is for anyone upset about this episode to make sure they've listened to at least five. Harry Nilsson albums. Before they have a heart attack. Acting send us some hate mail a nineteen seventy-two son of Schmil sin is probably the best Harry Nilsson album to make my point. Listen to the song. You're breaking my heart. Billy Joel wishes. He could all right. He wishes he could the nineteen seventy seven album. Nilsson is also scary. Good basically what happened with Harry Nilsson? I don't know if people know this. Is He started hanging out with John Lennon. When John Lennon was in the middle of his. I'm just GONNA get real drunk all the time phase and both of them were drinking way too much in by nineteen seventy-three. Let's say and Harry. Nilsson fucked up his vocal cords and he kept shrinking made some very bad albums than RCA fucked up the release of his big comeback album in nineteen seventy seven. It just left a gaping hole for the stranger to walk right in there. The longer Harry Nilsson went without coming. Back the braver. Billy Joel got in the more. He starts trying to sing. And enunciate like Harry. Nilsson listen to the song. Don't ask me why off the nine hundred eighty billy. Joel album glass houses Nilsson. I don't know shit about that. You have to listen to Harry Nelson much. No no you should is at piano music. It's it will. Harry Nelson is a guy who does that without.
Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs
"We're GONNA start our show today by taking a trip back to the nineteen eighties when singer. Songwriter Billy Joel was at the top of his game and he released two. Song Allentown about the decline of the steel industry. In America steel factories were closing in steelworkers. Were losing their jobs. The song shed light on the challenges the workers faced and at the same time. It made allentown a city in Pennsylvania quite famous so now let's fast forward twenty or so years. Two Thousand and one and Allentown is in the news again but this time it's because of an insect an agricultural pest from Asia had somehow found its way to Pennsylvania. The insect called the Brown rated stink bug feeds on apples. Peaches figs mulberries citrus fruits and other crops. Well it didn't take long for these tough little bugs to spread and by twenty ten. They wrecked havoc on orchards and crops in various parts of the United States. And the really bad news. Is that Brown? Mom rated stink. Bugs are still here and there on the move and they may soon arrive to a fruit tree near you. So what can we do about it? I've invited Tracy Leschi to the studio today to find out. She's an entomologist. And by the way an optimist as you will discover in this interview today. She's also the director of the Appalachian Fruit Research Station at Cairns Ville West Virginia. Her research is focused on the development of behaviorally based management tools for invasive and native pest of fruit crops. But before we start chatting I would love to hear your stories and your questions during the show you can email those questions and stories to in-studio one. Oh one at g mail DOT COM and do remember to include your first name and the city. You're writing from so tell us. Have you seen these bugs in your fruit trees? And what have you done about it in studio one a one at g mail dot com is the email so now to Tracy Leschi. Thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you Susan for the invitation. I'm so glad to have you here. And hopefully you will shed some light on these mysterious bugs. Oh my goodness so. The Story Starts Allentown. Can you tell me a little bit about that discovery? What was happening around then here. So you know Brown Mama Rated Stink Bug as you've already mentioned is a species that is not native to North America. It's native to Asian countries including China Japan Korea and Taiwan. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker And we'll probably get to that in a little while but at some point in the to late. Nineteen nineties homeowners. In and around the Allentown region of Pennsylvania were Seeing some interesting invaders in the fall to their homes and in fact these were Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. Now the issue was is that they weren't properly identified until two thousand one when Karen Bernhardt who with Penn State cooperative extension in Pennsylvania collected some of these specimens from a homeowner and she ended up sending them to attacks honest Rick Holbeck at Cornell and he identified them as Brown mom rates. Think so this was the first official record of population in North America. So how on Earth would they have gotten there? How did they get to these people's homes right so one of the interesting things about Brown mom rated stink bug is that they are excellent hitchhikers as adults and that means is that they can sort of end up being concealed and hidden from view and sort of take a journey to somewhere else and this is related to what we as entomologist refer to as their over wintering behavior which is essentially like hibernation for insects. So when these insects hibernate more or less they crawl into cracks and crevices and hunker down and wait for spring. And if these cracks or crevices happens to be in some sort of shipment of goods or perhaps in your suitcase or who knows This is how often these bugs have been transported to new locations. Whoa so how quickly would they spread? So let's say or what a what a thought. Let's say it's in your suitcase. You've gone on holiday to China. Or whatever he brought back these little hitchhiking bugs So let's say you have one bug or two bugs what happens then. How quickly would they spread? Well if you found one or two bucks I'd tell you to kill them I but You know it's a good question. They have a pretty good Reproductive capacity that sort of what we say in terms of you know how quickly can a population build up? Based on the reproductive efforts of a female a single female can lay up to twenty eight eggs at a time in in an egg mass. And she can lay up to four hundred over her lifetime. So you can imagine if you know. Just a portion of those eggs survived to adulthood and then reproduce. You can see that. A population could build rather quickly so is is that what happened like You know how quickly did this problem spread? You said it started sort of in the late nineties. It was discovered two thousand and one. And then what happens? Well what happened? After that was it was a slow spread And it was a slow build up for a number of years so in two thousand and three I found the first specimen officially outside Pennsylvania in Maryland. Just south of Allentown Pennsylvania. I in in sort of central Maryland in a town called Hagerstown There was some. Also some official detections in New Jersey and then it continued to spread through what we refer to as the mid Atlantic here in the United States and to Virginia West Virginia You know parts of Delaware Into upstate or sort of well. I should say downstate New York so the populations continued to build Over a number of years and then you know really began to build quickly back in two thousand eight two thousand nine and in two thousand and ten throughout the region. We really experienced what we refer to as an outbreak population. So what did that look like Especially if you're growing cheese. Yeah it looked well you know. When we first began to detect problems in fruit trees from Brown mom raided stink bug and say two thousand eighteen thousand nine. The issues were confined really to the late season. Where just before harvest and this is really painful. If you can imagine your fruit just about ready to be picked from the tree almost ripe. We were seeing large numbers of adult invading the orchards in the fall and feeding on the fruit and this was causing for some of our local growers up to ten percent loss. Even back then but in two thousand and ten we saw the bugs invading earlier much earlier actually just after the fruit had formed just after pedal fall essentially in these orchards. In that early season feeding really set up our growers for significant losses. Where you know for our Peach Growers. Many growers lost their entire crops. Most lost half of their crop. And then it just went on from there. You know apples and Incurred ABOUT THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS IN LOSSES. Thousand and ten just locally. That's terrible was the fruit. Not salvageable at all. I mean what what do these Brown marmalade stink bugs due to the fruit? Yeah they are you know. They are a typical stink bug species in that their mouth parts are essentially a straw and they insert that Straw into the fruit tissue and they inject some salivary enzymes that essentially helps break down that tissue and suck out the juice and so what they leave behind. Is this dry corky tissue beneath the surface of the skin as well as discolored display depressions on the surface now for peaches because the feeding Began so early essentially once you peel that fruit. The entire fruit was riddled with these deep pockets of dead comey tissue and you know. The entire fruit was essentially unsolvable. It was just a complete loss. For FOR APPLE. Growers some of the fruit could be redirected to From sort of a fresh market to juice market. But you know they're getting Cents on the dollar in terms of the value so in essence they're losing over. Ninety percent of the value of that fruit have normally gone into fresh market. So it was very
Josh Taylor Links Up With Ben Davison After McGuigan Split
"Take a call off. Imagine this week for Especially very pleased to welcome to the show. Just could thank you yet we give. Thanks for joining like price-fixing more this is about.

You know not just from prison in Scotland Jo. Say is crazy. Yeah ever start. They're like you've added. Obviously. Don't concedes things that happened outside the ring of Split with Wiggins Cam but the show has to go on and oversee you have responsibilities multiple belt holder one of them being humanitary challenges and from the touristy strict on those you've been ordered by the bathroom ready to defend the thing so they was pressuring you regardless of of the split actually find a China but general new maneuver was WANNA go anywhere. How to for a long time and a new team? That was going to be leaving Shane. Mcguigan jus just was very unhappy. First choice was so an. We've come over one hundred weeks trial and a and Dubai enough. The second session was fluent. You know just can click new. Wanted to to go stray away but in a book and a week rather than other booth as well with what to do to make up their name. After about Bannon I come here. I just think in the spelt just jail. Because obviously trains Billie Joe Israel on La Custodial his speed and combination and food work. You know so. I thought it'd be a good match up and feel comfortable in annex eight further. She hopes I was glad. You Want Obama. Wilton it over the of the war you were going to go to Uber doing recession with with autumn trial as well. I just think that ban status John is more suited. Do not take anything away from on Burke's coach but a lot of failures have a certain standard yeah. I don't think you'd better. Yeah but I'm not no automatic coaches. Well it was. It was very good. I haven't been seeing similar things you need to do. A Walk Cohen again was sort of shoulder stale. And it just wasn't my style until you go rape a couple of teams a job and stuff fell real good but just two different from Aachen and style and billy Joel and South Pole and seeking combination fast punches with good feet walk so under the weakening going to stay in the second week. I'm going to train here. This is what I'm going to go. We'll Ben Weapons. Take out. Congratulations on this new partnership. Also want to say a big congratulations for the weekend. Because of course you're in the Corden last by that but I think anybody watching these knows anything about. Boxing understands the totally invaluable contribution that you made progress and twice in achieved on Saturday night and so low you for from us. Congratulations must be a great fien. Yeah of course you know tossing a fringe as well when Keep putting these right because it does simply bow down to that just because I'm not financially benefiting from a situation doesn't mean he's not my friend anymore. I've always the French. It was completely fake. And of course I wanted to win an annuity to do good number because fame to be able to do what he done. That tops fifty percent in the I knew it was gonna be. What are they now? He's going to be as dominant as that news going to dominate and get good win. We'll come on to that because I know you toss fury fantasy. We'll come into the fight. Second offer the show for those of you watching and listening. We don't often hear about the side of the train is experienced. When there's a split with the fights over they retire or whether you part ways Tyson. Speaking stay co about the void that was left when Belgium hung them up last year. And how that's been a big adjustment period for him over the last twelve months for you. Obviously we've talked for years and years and years but journey was so intense and so hands on and so committed from both of your sides that when that comes through in our magin takes a bit of adjusting for us. Well Yeah of course. She knows it was a twenty four seven job literally twenty four seven three hundred sixty five days a year so it took up a Omar. Tom The last couple of years and I was walking again. We believe in being contacted about the judge situation as well and it was. Actually that wasn't nice to part ways we talked and it was nice to have a little bit of towns myself over the Christmas period as well because for the last three years. Christmas is both days all of that of always been away so it was Nice Avenue bad time to myself as well call you know yourself. You're in a similar situation to Josh where he left the train. But you're the peak of your career. So uconn yeah. We see prospects changing coaches nearly stages of their careers trying to work out. What's best for them? But at this stage of your career when you're changing trainers there's very low margin for error because you're essentially going into big fight off the big fight. There's no easy ones from from this point and the stakes. Obviously a high they she if you particularly and I know you had the same when you left and found. Jamie more you have to fit that has to be has to be someone that you work well with and you agree with their methods and their approach to Faden and the approach they take to fight and training camps and everything else and even just as well so I had a few trainers in mind when I when I joined Jimmy Mira when I left the mcguigan. Sorry Jimmy was the first one that I want on. It just felt a real quick and someone. I didn't do the Josh John Was. He went to show morale's I really. I felt like a fitted in well not jim elect. Jimmy was saying and that was enough for me maybe another two or three guys and manned and everything's a lot of contacting a member of the thing that just just well Jimmy. You obviously need that time to Joe did you. Fought for the Horatio Garcia. I'll say the thing short camp and the approach gender did for a faith and I had six weeks and it wasn't like wasn't forced and the woman felt like the right decision for me to make but it was fast approaching my return defect and again. I knew I needed a coach as well so it was kind of half blood that he was the first guy. Because maybe if I'd have went with someone else with a short space of time I made a one of them because I was getting close. The approaching afraid of in my head. Peter has one solace was one because he was given. Hey and autumn booth was in my head as well as a potential trainer but gave me was the first one to. I'm glad that by the time he then had to build towards the thought. You need that nine months together to Joe was a pairing the two big Of You guys will have the same thing when you come to. Maybe that fight with Ramirez. If he's later this year were next year so in it in a sense. Who's this happened? On some of that you've been mandated for these fights. The ones that you want to have as your first one together. Because you don't really ben one walk into a fight with Joseph Ramirez after you know working with someone for for fourteen sixteen weeks yet your son degree but I feel like she's a similar character to us. Latino Arkansas of quickly understand what type of person he is emotionally how he's mentally and you can see in the build up to previous fought speak fuzzy's had how approaches those flights in that mine and stylistically. I understanding on the standard shrimps on the season. He's the level of far to where you can make adjustments. And of course you can improve them. I do believe even without those adjustments. He's good enough to beat Ramirez in my opinion. Okay but I mean the criticism that you had when you first came on the scene was always baseness your age and your relative inexperience coach and obviously ninety nine percent of thousands. Of course after that I say while to fight for you was the way the Ben led the corner that night and the call. Mri showed on the the highest lakes possible. Was that one of the things that made you think he could guide meter in these big before. It was so a clips trained Tyson. An over the belly. Joe's will stay there. Were walking on the combinations of movement head movement and the speed and the feet were really similar that we can boxing can train. You know. So he's going to move up. Can I WANNA go with an officer? The Way Komo boat and then you hear his vase in the corner breaks the FE and just this knowledge of this book is broken these on the twenty seven. Yeah SMARTS WAY I. How actually apologized when he billy Joel was an was fighting. Someone in eastern. And you're in the corner and it was the first real appearance from you. Remember thinking it was a bad reform from billy Joel but remember thinking urgency in the corner but enhance sake. We nine Billie Joe wasn't fed and there was no word because every fucking if you'd have been too on top on the corner of Blue Gosden. Yeah you may have lost a fake. I have apologize for for what would be joe quite a few years before that and new obviously spend that training camp with him along with Jimmy Tibbs couple of weeks before five ways we Jimmy and I knew what was in the tank and I knew that we had to efficient in getting around management was very in Poland. Now what might be Joe take some out take and I know what doesn't so I knew when to push him on because the bill judge J fogg told him you'll stay around he was gonNA thank you ever to win the next round. We couldn't afford to do that. She was just about around. I think people always associate age of experience but I was lucky enough to spend time around people Jimmy Tubes and very knowledgeable guys which I gained a hell of a lot from a non round management. They something picks up from Jimmy tibbs unquote. That's the best about will the faces a new face on the managing high profile fights is that had it been Jimmy Tibbs in the corner. People would've assumed they obviously there's something going on with because it's you the first people reach for is does this guy know is doing and they look at your age and then say that's the about faces of training. I would like to think the performances in the corner over the last couple of years of giving people realize the what you're about the same as forty one performance and people jump on until fully. Understand that it's the same for everybody and anybody in high high profile situation. There's going to be downstairs. This'll your options for this year. And so this apponaug on some who's been mandated by the whole hangs told me there's there's no much online a couple of eight and it's only a few Ranjha so it does vary toll but it looks like he punched his heart but very wailed in so it raw keith. My on the ball. Nothing I don't think I can handle and I'm sure we'll get him and it's GonNa be if Shedu lineup is going to potentially a week or two before Pasta and Ramirez do you think about what's Outgo. Yeah it'd be for going and build for Boeing and I am to life and then pick up tips and hopefully put myself a fight after the end result and get myself a fight for their unification of the belts. It's good to be there as well as trying to make and just to be present. Boca players and people started talking about the more that Josh and say. I don't even know manufacturer with Sixteen Sixteen years. He's been completely undisputed author. Maybe a teen fakes. Yeah on real. It will take a little bit affirm- playing out. Because they're oversee mandate she's on both sides. Wbz will be cool next the winner of Possum Ramirez the WBO. I think we'll be called. Tau Closest amount in your Camp Castro. Do feel like he's been mandatory since time began and he's been waiting very patiently for quite recently sunny front war and said in an interview that John Wooden necessarily step aside. Fay So would mean that. Potentially you'd have to face. He would have faced winner. Puzzle Ramirez Wbai Mandatory. Which could be Whitson? If you Kinda plan this out and you're listening to oversee. Ideally I'd WanNa go forth Ramirez fake and obviously Kado take a step back and make the shot for all the marbles but please you know Jack Jack. Idaho's wait that long thing for today's short has been mandatory for a good while. No so is Joe. Short so happens I then so be it. They don't have to Ma other mandatory against a written or someone you know so I'm about what we goes day. I'm confident in every single.

Is the Link Between Depression and Serotonin a Myth?
"This is from What doctors don't tell you coincidentally it's a magazine from the UK What is her name? Lynne McTaggart founder of it and her husband and I'm sorry I can't think of his name But I I it's in here. That's so disrespectful. Find it hold on. Okay Up Brian Hubbard. Your is her husband's name And so it says in many of the suppressed oppressed studies S. S. R. is performed worse than Placebos. Okay we're talking And and that's just part of it. And then they talk about inflammation it's it's it's as if depression isn't a chemical If depression isn't a chemical imbalance what is it. One theory gaining. Traction is that it has to do with inflammation and I'm thinking of the book the inflamed mind and all these other things that I read everywhere and I do believe that I do and I've seen it firsthand from people in my family that have taking CBD or tumor just lost some weight or started eating better and their mental health improves as well. Absolutely once you mitigate inflammation through diet through lifestyle through sleep then things start to to to even out a bit more because your body's inflamed Cintas fight or flight state as it is so then you couple that with things outside of it in life and it's going to just make it worse and here's here's a little more on the SS ours are is the SS arise. Yeah and they're like what are you talking about. That's an old song isn't it. Never heard of it and the USSR. Billy Joel the Billy Joel. The Beatles back in the. US Bilko. Isn't billy Joel. I may be wrong. Mo Bros out but we'll do a challenge challenge. We'll have somebody google anyway. What made me think of it? I have the worst sense of humor I really do but Bu- back before our eyes antidepressants were developed Just two one hundred people per million listen to this just before they developed are accessorize this which are antidepressants. Before they were developed. Just two hundred hundred people per million were diagnosed with depression but this exploded to a hundred thousand people per million ten percent of the population when the drugs were launched on the back of the chemical imbalance theory of depression. That's crazy right. Okay let me read on. It says in one thousand nine sixty five Harvard psychiatrist. Joseph Shield Kraut Kraut. Put forward the theory. That depression was caused by low levels of neurotransmitter and two years later other researchers singled out serotonin and so it says if a chemical is linked depression than the drug industry could produce another chemical to adjust the balance and so research began to research into SS. Our eyes as began but neuroscientists were doing their research to and they were unable to find evidence that supported the theory. Clinical researchers didn't fare fare. Any better studies have depressed. People found that their serotonin levels were the same as in healthy controls and even when when Saratova Serotonin levels calls were D- habilitated Excuse me I'm really butchering this. You know okay you know what I'm having. I had my teeth cleaned this morning. And what does that have to do it. But I'm having like this is weird thing with my lips. No I'm serious like my lips aren't pronouncing words right anyway. Okay so let me go back. So so even when Serotonin levels were deliberately lowered. The participants didn't become depressed. Convert conversely depress people given very high doses of Serotonin didn't see any improvement in their symptoms. Even the psychiatric profession quietly agrees. It's Bible that the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders doesn't list Serotonin as a cause of depression. While the American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry Sites serotonin deficiency as an unconfirmed hypothesis right. But we also know now about genetic expression how you can turn genes on and off so just because you maybe you might have the gene for depression or anxiety or whatever your your lifestyle your diet your stress levels and you'll recovery can turn on or off those genes in childhood childhood trauma that they address like see. I told you I can't tickets. But that's the thing like they were. They're looking at one thing they're looking at Serotonin. Of course you're not going to fix visit with one with a silver bullet right. The you have to look at the entire holistic picture of this thing. Yeah holistically so under the M. I didn't. That's that's such such such a great point it is because that's what we do here. We talk about holistic and alternative. How so it goes on with this inflammation? Depression isn't a chemical imbalance. What is it one theory gaining? Traction is it has to be inflammation and we already talked about that. But researchers at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana tested the theory that when they assessed early childhood had experiences and depression among one hundred seventy seven young offenders at a juvenile detention center in Russia many were suffering from depression and the researchers discovered vert a correlation between the severity of their condition and the extent of childhood trauma such as punishment hostility parents on justified criticism and lack F- respect. Absolutely that's a subconscious programming especially when your child we don't even realize is happening right. I don't know why I'm depressed. Nawab sad all the time. Well you know so And that goes for For Schizophrenia too. You can be predisposed to that. It's in my family genes. But why did I not get it. And why did my brother My brother Jerome Jerry. Jerry data will. Jerry was sexually molested as a child when he was an altar boy with the Catholic Church and so and that caused a split your body holds trauma holds traumas going and it happened repeatedly. He was an altar boy for many many years. Okay and it was. It was a repeated thing and He had a nervous breakdown when he was seventeen and he and his life immediately you know was he and he's never had a driver's license all these things that we all take for granted And he has suffered tremendously But in one institution after the next now he's in a really great home where he gets great care and Houston and but so many so many people don't understand that those childhood traumas they. Can you carry them with them with you for your life unless they're healed and talked about that so one of the doctors that I'm working with now don would WHO's a neuropsychologist? Has a program program called inspired performance institute he goes back in helps clear. TRAUMAS like that. Childhood TRAUMAS Folks that have been Exonerated from wrongfully incarcerated for murders and such And that's what it's all about is about clearing those subconscious traumas of things. That happened to us. Like it's you your your your brother right might might blame himself for being an altar boy. It's those little things they go back to. They don't think about that. They don't understand it until they go back into it because brain sees it as as if it's happening right now until until they can clear that in reprogram the way the brain sees that event they're going to be stuck in that repetitive

Lo where she's going to have amazing answer this that and the other but still the main event remains Jaylo yes it's almost she's overshadowing herself which is both smart but also there's a comparison you can't help but make yeah yeah yeah he songs I would not do a single hover no she did her deepest saw her old saw did she try to break it down at any point like where it's just like her in a Mike and just really yes so she has honestly a gorgeous outfit sorry it was honestly a gorgeous outfit she was wearing like rhinestone cowboy boots that were like Christiane something released and like a gorgeous robe I'm and she likes RAV and it's like black and there's like lights in there are no dancers it's deconstructed but it's doesn't sh- it's not the same like are they doing halo is the horse and that's that's the that's the Halo Lopez brings down I'm still I'm still jenny from complexities gorgeous just say though I think it would behoove Erica if any of her hangers-on are listening Mikey's rolling love I love mikey dolls I we work video that she bring it down put on the robe and do now we know how much do that way with her teaching because this is where the fans are coming from and she taught to read to do that and why not do it. did you not do it and also make it kind of like shade for on poorly APP reform exactly I think that would be a good performance I was really deeply invested in Erica she was a house that I latched onto the most and so this arc I am not on the train where do you find eric now I yeah well she just doesn't want to give up her soul to reality TV which is beautiful like that's a good person but it's not a good Riady the listeners across America or across about five states are longing in their cars right now because for the what we've needed all this time which is she doesn't want to give up Saudi television and for that I cannot forgive that is a noble worthy cause get off my teeth exactly makes her brave makes her smart but it does not make Kerr a lovable star and you know why I'm angry at her for doing that is because Asia has a soul to give up would you don't be she gave us that promise that she was willing to we're down her whole life and her life seems to be doing okay and I don't like

Dolan says banned Knicks fan set up an 'ambush'
"And then there's Knicks owner James Dolan. He's been trying to defend his actions of banning a fan from Madison Square Garden after he told dole to sell the team. Dolan appearing on the Michael Kay show on ninety eight seventy SPN New York called it an ambush, it appears that the this gentleman and his friends right planned to do this. Right. The that day. Just before the game. They cleared their profiles out, right? The we have video which I think we've supplied to you which shows them moving from one side of the arena to the other, and pointing at me and the way you were walking where I was walking right in saying, you know, the and to set this ambush up and. And they did. And then. Soon as they were done with it. It was immediately sold to TMC if you get confrontational right etcetera in Madison Square Garden, right? You are not going to stay right? There are eighteen thousand other people that are there to enjoy the game. And we're not going to let you know your desire to pick a fight. Right. The getting away of their enjoyment of the game. And that's that's just the bottom line. It's not for nothing. But I shouldn't have taken the bait. You walked right into it. I did. I will say, you know, we just lost again. Right. The and you know, and I believe it or not I get very frustrated with it too. If he had just been somebody who didn't do that. Right. Who says you know was just angry about the loss. Right. And and said that right? Yeah. I think what we would have done is. We would have invited him back, right? And said here come you know, what he comes to see what what the organization is really about right? I do that with everybody. But so he's banned from the Knicks is he banned from the Rangers, Billy, Joel concerts, can inoculate the Gordon. Guy who said some never go into the why do you want it? Why did I wonder what you feel bad for him though, because I feel bad that the whole situation, smells it really does. And your first reaction, even before you saw the video that he made his way over if you put your arm around him you'd have a fan for life. Listen. Dolan saying he originally planned on inviting the fan back to let him meet the team. However, he said a changed when quota became clear, the whole thing was planned. Our sarahspain says. I don't know what's an ambush about moving over to the area where a player or donor might might be able to be within ears earshot and yelling sell the team. Now. It's rude undoubtedly rude, but not nearly as rude as subjecting your fans to a team that hasn't been relevant since the seventies. I mean, just the sensitivity here of considering it an ambush, and why would they feel like they had the ability to sell something to TMZ unless they knew that. You would react the way you did. Which again, whether you're a player or an owner berating your customers is a bad luck. And he should be fine by the NBA, just like Russell Westbrook. Knicks meanwhile, will be hosting the Lakers on Sunday and countless fans on social media hoping for a chant of sell the team. When that game takes

I can always sit down to the party played and everybody starts singing go to pub- in England hang on vinegars zones. Uptown girl, and they'll sit around and sing and everyone has list, it's fun. It's it creates a community instantly. Billy Joel is the third best selling solo artist of all time in the United States. He sold more records than the stones Bruce Springsteen and Madonna, but he admits there's still room for improvement. I know what good panel playing is. And I'm not good my left hand lane. I am a two finger left hand piano player as opposed to post somebody who knows what they're doing with the left hand. I never practiced enough to use all my fingers on my left hand.

"Learned he was not a cool person to like, and I'm not I'm not a group thing person. So I did buy that that I was like why don't write that unlike and the reasons that I think that people perceive that he's uncool to like are all hot garbage. And the thing about him that I like is that let's reflect back. This is a guy who ended with river of dreams could've very easily put out four or high more pop records of under an made great money. I mean, maybe not as much money as he would have around the era of the stranger, but great money even river of dreams went four times platinum. Yes. Yeah. Direct grand. So nice out for me. The thought is here's a guy who acknowledges as mentioned in one of the previous generations of this episode that Billy Joel acknowledged that a good quarter of his. Discography is trash when the guy who could have very easily made money putting out perfectly fine. But it offensive Tabatha up records following river dreams and didn't do it. Right. I cannot think of another artist in my lifetime who is voluntarily said like out of the Lisette essentially like, obviously like careers end one hit wonders or even like, you know to albums, and then aren't you hit that level again? And so they just give up that's a completely different animal. You know, obviously, we rate them low. But like he was still having very significant commercial success through the end of his album release career. And I totally agree. I really respect that. He was like, I don't have more great songwriting to give some just gonna stop filling the airwaves with shape. Yup. I'm just get. I'm gonna I'm gonna play my hits. Because I know those are great songs and I'm proud of. I. What being I liked that? He does and you can hear this in recent live LP's like twelve gardens of an he obvious it right now, he has a pretty consistent monthly residency at Madison Square Garden is he changes the case injures Tucson's the taken a longer hit the heights of like of good nightside on for instance, since he's in. Coasties more. He's way over he's closer to seven as about About two two seconds. seconds. And he like there are people who would try to push it off to a different vocalist in there. So ice all our public art, for example, recently at Austin limits, and he would pass off Certa vocal passages to someone who could have hired outs that he could. And our spirit is not to say probably on the same tour at the Tinley park outside Chicago, and he saying all of every single song. So I wonder if he was having a bad vocal night of that. But also, even actually this is more. The case was bright Wilson of while. That's that's a different Casal together shirt. But yeah, but also you have a story about his what he wanted his last tour to be. Yes. So this is a quotation. For simply Reno. Pursue who has conventionally tough. As a Billy Joel is was astounded.

"This is actually amazing. Here's a question, Bryce, genuinely truly sure why did you want us to do Billy? Joel. Oh, I know why actually this is a slight tangent. Because I remember for those of you who heard the Adele song offer twenty five when we were young which should love the little song. It was covert. And by guy named Tobias Tessa junior. And I remember this guy came out he had an album in he's racially vocal piano, songwriter type guy and critics Jisr hard over him like in lake his alma sucks. Yeah. Eh? But the thing is I remember Bryce telling me the time. How set he was because Hauer all of you mother fuckers liking this little brat at the piano and still hating on Billy, Joel. Yes. And remember. Yeah. Well, there we allies that Billy Joel was so over there were there were there were two pieces in popular media about the Joel that led me to the reaction that you just described against device. Junior one of which was a piece describing Billy Joel as the Donald Trump of poppies who the fuck wrote that it was on slate. It was I think it was hot hot stat end the other one was no sorry. The piece which is about to name, which I believe it was like Billy Joel's like the worst part is to ever that effect which was on slate. And it was I couldn't relate to it. Because by the time that piece was raped which was like two thousand nine two thousand ten I felt like yeah. Like, I get it. Like, maybe you don't love the music that your parents listened. Yes. I understand that. There are so many people that are better punching bags than Billy. Joel my thing about the whole like people, not taking Billy Joel seriously, or whatever is like, you You know. know, obviously, they did very long tour together. But even in ehre, Billy, Joel and Elton John were the piano dudes, and they were very much like in a similar vein. They were compared to each other. And I can't understand how anyone would prefer Elton John. I literally. And that's as a gay, man. I'm saying this Elton John has a couple like all time wonderful hits. I get it. I understand why the popular. But like when you look, and I have listened to a couple John albums like the, quote, unquote, good ones, and they are fucking garbage ibis. I when you look at like Sistan see of Billy Joel song songwriting and the like the experiments that he does you know, there's not a ton of them. But like, you know, he can play with a seven minute song and make feel immediate and interesting for that tire lane and like Elton John can't fuck do that. So I don't understand why. But there's completely Elton John is held on a higher level in Billy Joel pretty consistently got gold, pop culture. And I don't understand it all and to your question with why I like, Billy Joel is I understand superficially. Why a lot of contemporary critics don't like him because he's associated with the baby boomers he's associated with like seventies. Like, the song would I I? like Peng. Plenty of even the song, which I know is best scenes untied restaurant is this catalogue of like nineteen seventies couple of and but it's also a catalog of nineteen seventies. Couple coupled on going wrong, right? But and in fact, one of one of the most misinterpreted lyrics because it's very easy to superficially. Interpret is that's the story. Bredon Eddie can't take marks at told you already and a lot of people interpret that is like, oh, he's trying to reverse like, no, he's not willing to say more about that. Because he says more about that. He had knowledge is how hall low in shallow, and ultimately defeatist that vision of life is. So why quote unquote, stand for Billy Joel as much as I do is that I you say STAN common enough word in the name hockey circles. It was wanna be construed, I uploaded away. Joel.

Only one of those two so listen, we're have many Soviet a great time rankled is that we needed to do at the start of every happier. Minnesota which is get is genuinely what's the worst? Billy Joel song. We did start fire for see I want to call it the word. Worst isn't good. Oh, I think it's firmly. The worst in fact, so for those listening to the. She's me skykomish cast. There is a great article on Boulter ranking all hundred twenty one a Billy Joel songs at one Twenty-one has the Mexican connection, which is the very forgettable instrumental at the end of streetlife serenade. Yeah, that's mostly tireless fine. But at number one twenty it has we didn't start the fire with which firmly agree. I disagree. I think like. Look there aren't there. It's doesn't he doesn't have a lot of like overtly horrible song is my didn't start the fire is like an easy choice. But like how about all about soul of river or like how about how about I mean yet Kristie lease a good choice. Anything off of the bridge. If big bailable bury St. nice, he fucks his PML over. What is your pick? Bryce. We didn't have Oh, the the mar- mar. hit just reading for the list of I- legit. He gives his hin, and then he gave someone else's opinion too. Yes, here's his Strobe. Here's what we didn't start the fire. Is that main as you talked about in the primary episode the whole does that in and of itself as a melodic motif doesn't have to be bad. But then the subsequent baby-boomer listing of like all this should that happen it by the by the way, guys. This wasn't our fault. It just is history. Unfolding I have a whole English. PHD bullshit version of this song that I have in my weight. So you're trying to say that by releasing. We didn't start the fire. He's trying to like absolve his generation from responsibility of all of the things that are listed in the song. Yes. That is fucking strep. That is some act I e s. There's way it nowhere near that much. Thought went into this song you were giving him. Well, you're giving him. I guess you're not giving credit, but like you are giving credence to like I am giving credence Clearwater vital to the set some delight Deloitte of it's not flu greater. Here's the thing about the song is I recognize that he put way less thought into that song that I have put into it just to someone listening to reading it. But the things that he does not think about in. Constructing those lyrics, which are obvious are the things that are interesting. And the the interesting things about that song that he thinks that all of that sequence of historical events that he lists is just things that happen. And we try to make sense of them. And it's like, well, you know, we didn't start this fire, but you know, other people did or other people contributed to it. And so that's the way it is. And that's. It's like, I'm not like the only person, in fact, Billy Joel himself has said it's the war song that he's written her the worse on that is to get popular. Yeah. I can understand source of his ticket popular yet. It's and I'm sure he is not super thrilled about it being one of his only three number ones ons, but like when gays Fenway injured epithet.

"And also is one of the things where say what you will about. It's five minute length this the bulls my mind about his dislike of streetlife serenade is that production on peon. You have those little like Gundel guitars kinda come in there. Just rising action to it. You have the harmonica. It's out is just so composed. And it just sounds like such a perfect moment. And for me. Honestly, the biggest thing about this long as when he does the loud. Oddity this just like a nice little dramatic grounding to because otherwise would just be pure pop fluff. You know, when you talk about people coming up to him and giving money, but then he always comes down to the sad. Little descending line before it rains backup again like that's the power and strength of. So for me, piano. Man, I agree with you culturing harbors list debut debut, PanAm feels like the announcement of who Billy Joel is. And I embrace it for that reason. It's not my favorite elegant number one. But I would fight for little the here's the thing. Like in many ways, I don't hate the placing of glass houses in the spot that you wanna place it the thing is, and I was actually pleased something I think we'll get to later, but a vulture has a really great series where they rank all of the songs of given artists. Like, literally, they get right. They did the beetle. They did the Billy Joel. And I was really pleased to see that the author of that particular piece put sleeping with television on in the top five. Oh, yeah. Billy Joel song. I like it. But I clearly agree. At first of all if if any of you listeners out there happening of the great of Norwegian singer, songwriter, central air K, you will know that. I that he is brilliant for the same reason that I like that sleeping with television on which is that it has a lot of courts, and I know that the basic reason to like us on. But there are like I try to learn it on guitar playing the chords, not the melody or anything more than that. But there's like five or six courts perverse, and then the chorus itself changes. And I I don't know. I think that that's so I mean, the the weird thing is beginning where like the in the home of the brave like that like little excerpt plays. Why is that they're I don't know? But that this song is supposed to be like, a commentary on American culture. Yeah. Which Billy Joel's, not great at frankly. But that Amelia heard we didn't start the fire. Yes. But that song and. I don't wanna be alone to me. It's this is one of those things where when you don't necessarily love an album is a whole you're waiting it based on the strength of its best song. Yes. And to me, I don't wanna be alone with television on to me hip, higher highs than pm Mantas. And I recognize I may be the minority on that. Because I was actually because I remember looking at the cover of glass houses when I was going to go religion to I like, Billy Joel cannot pull off Springsteen. He just cannot restaurant right? Yeah. Keep fairly tries. Also, it's funny because we have completely different takeaways, but I think that you may be right. Don't ask me why and still rock and roll to me are all significantly better songs than anything. That's on pm would say though that being said after we talked about as much as we have class piano next to slots, regardless of which lost. They are feels about right to me. That's fair. That's kind of what I'm saying might personal voted for glasshouses number six nominated in the previous episode.

If you're one of those mother fuckers that listens liquor. You wanted the number one album is your missing out. We had quite a discussion about a bunch of albums some of which will be talking about more detail here on our part to but please list of the part one. It's very very important. I need to introduce the people who are here. Of course. This me in Saudi it is the Brennan to my Eddie. It is terrible Riley. And is of course, prices L consequences jer. Yes. Because I've heard that the second came out and just like, oh, that's right. I also like to briefly mention our sponsor as well. If you guys if you wanna please check out Mr. Kantar is down on the street. If you mentioned the talkers when you place your order, you can get half on a red and the white guys listen Joel fascinating little individual. We're down to six albums of. Discography again, we're not gonna mention damage that we talked about before because that's report one. But just you know, we're down to nineteen seventy three's piano. Nineteen seventy six turnstiles negativities, the stranger nineteen seventy eight fifty second street nineteen eighties glasshouses and nineteen hundred threes in innocent, man. So so what are those are the big ones the classics? And I think they are there for a reason we're gonna dive into them in great wonderful detail. So now between three months we have to come to consensus ranking. So there again port one there's a lot of nominations for our eight and seven spot. So we're gonna probably talking about some of those albums, but right now prices L if you had your personal druthers of remaining levels. What would you pick for a number six slot? So I don't know if this is non diplo Matic because ties or laying, but I in this spot, given our discussion in part one y'all got listen to the part discussion. I should add. I would add in this spot for number six either it innocent man or piano, both involving man as the title, hashtag breakdown, the patriarchy, Billy Joel patriarchy. Wow. Okay. Records something s tend to dribble for their cord evening episode, which explains why you just heard and read Judith Butler by the by some of the scenes, everyone every time. So let me let me explain a Russian athletes and both of these come from pointed I've somewhat developed in the previous episode, but I'll more free more substantially developed here with piano, man, you have some Billy Joel's great songwriting moments. I think peon is an objectively great song. Unfortunately, even for myself. I must admit it has been overplayed to a degree that I find NAS aiding and that, but I can tell that. It's the overplaying that I don't like it's not the song. Right. Yes. At night. It's also it's just funny to hear Billy talk about peon. And he's like it was like a live watching. And he was saying that, you know, whenever he goes into a place where someone is playing live PNO and the him they start playing and every time without fail. Whether it's like, a grocery store or of Hanover, or anywhere, etc. And they especially if they're not singing. Being in there. Just playing the melody elected today. Did that? And then it's just that over and over and over and over again for five and a half minutes beside the. And so like, yes, it's a great song. But it's also quite long. Yes for what it is for. There's one thing that I had not remembered about Billy Joel's career, especially both in streetlife serenade and in piano is that he has like a weird dalliance with prog by captain Jack is a prog song made like way too long length for what it is. But that's a prog song. But the adventuring about on the entertainer of us. Rely serenade is how they cut down you cut down the Oba song to three oh five because he was so fucking furious that they did a gun damn radio at a p an-and because it needed a radio etiquette or on the radio. They're not gonna play however many minute long find. Yeah. So so that's the reason and again listened to part one at rules..

"No. Like like. Yeah. A room of our own in surprises. Like to me. Those are like good like mid album tracks talk about him. I like where see orchestra some a sucker for piano ballet. But it's it's it's he Henry is secured. He has so many better be true. True. I've talked about about six of them already. The here's the point attention that I feel here's where I can sort of start together the baby there's a distinction with our respective usability career because my next pick for this slot. The number night slot would be an innocent, man. You mean, the number eight slap the number ATS, right? Yeah. We are to Katrina sermon here saying, hey. Innocent, man. Really? Yes. And I won't get into the details are already told this will be a conversation that will probably happen later in this podcast. I would care for it to happen. But in terms of song construction and just the basic facts of the building blocks of the song record. It's not about album, certainly, and like the the vocal arrangements on for the longest time. Even as nauseatingly overplayed as it's been uptown girl is very well done a lever tender moment alone. Also, very good song. Just is to me it it is alternately. And it's interestingly place because what happens after that are the too late eighties records that we put at the bottom of the list is that's JOL hiding behind the influences that he likes and he's openly admitted that emitted that throughout his career. He's been riveted. He said that. But yeah, all voices. He puts on trying to vote the artist he's but like on. Those songs it's like, oh, I get it. You're trying to write the book and music for the jersey boys like twenty years before it exists like, it's not bad. Like, I dislike those songs. But if I'm ranking these records in terms of what I think the greatest chievements of Billy Joel as an artist are, I more interested in the cheap, -ment swear. Even though obviously he's kinda muddled source of info or muddled confluence of influences. I've want those things where it's not as exceedingly obvious as it's on the on a man. I get what you're saying. But I also think that innocent man was a good decision. The specially when you admittedly look at the three albums that what came after it that were in the style of the current era. He was reporting in and that did not fit him very well. And so as the eighties were starting and he'd already done nylon curtain, which is a pretty eighty sounding album when it's not sounding like Lenin. You know, this the sense. There's a lot of airland. The sensor definitely out enforce already. And and it was not as commercially successful as he probably had owned, you know, he had come off of glasshouses had his first number one single on it. And so then, you know, your two of them later, and he he's trying to recreate commercial success. Also, pop culture coz in cycles. It's nineteen eighty threes of twenty years earlier do off was on its way out. But that is the right arid call. They're already been the greed the fifth in the seventies. There was a fifties revival when you had Greece when you had all these other lights came through in terms like show. There was so aggressive yet. For example. There was an audience already for it. And it was as radical departure to make think regardless of how you feel about like, the influences are so you know, obvious obvious tell her about it is one of the best pot on so ever recorded. Like that is just it's one of like my favorite. Songs of all time. And I, you know, I like uptown girl a lot to it has been more overplayed, I feel I which is funny because tell her about a disaster the one that went to number one. But I it's just like, it's it's pop perfection. And as much as we talk about Billy Joel as a rocker is, you know, a incredible pianist he's a pop songwriter fundamentally fundamentally start to finish. He writes, pop music and innocent man is one of his biggest pop triumphs. And so I understand why you don't like it as much given your explanations. I just completely disagree..

"But the thing is that like the more time I spent with even though that was my initial instinct is just like putting a classical album next pop Algan such different animal rights. Not only would we be ranking very lowly if we were ranking because it's just out of its element here. But also, it would feel weird putting it anywhere. It's like is it better than storm front? I need. Yes. But like I will say by itself as classical I very much enjoyed it. It's very much like he is frequently cited Beethoven is one of the composers followed by Mozart. I get the little elements of Chopin in. They're like, they're selling some nice, just like shifts, and moods and changes. And there he tries Alexi a lot of different styles over the course of the tracks on there. It's a pretty pretty good, right? And it doesn't have to. Surprising that successful. Because a lot of. I mean, the thing that he didn't lose as his career went on was the like the strips down to Pia no ballots were like the stuff on the leader albums. And so it makes sense that like go into a classical style would be back in his element all of the production stakes that were everything after glasshouses, but we'll get. I should also add with with fantasies and delusions the trick is that he is not performing on that record either. Richard you Richard JR. Either y O or jail. Oh, I count last name. But that the reason why Billy Joel didn't perform that records because he admitted at he admits many interviews post river of dreams that the kind of piano playing that he does especially with his most recent kind of extravagant life tours is like all of them. A lot stuff is in the right hand. And then the left hand is just doing base autos or courts, very simple at so for the music that he was attempting to write with fantasies and delusions. It was more. You know, there's a piece in there. It's like a minute long. It's called like invention in c minor or something like that. And it's like a Chopin prelude. Like, it's interesting. It's in you know, it's kind of moody and stuff, but the thing about one reason why that album doesn't really count because so much of the heavy lifting in terms of interpreting the music, that's there is on the pianist and not on Billy Joel's. So. So it would be much in the same way that it would be for example impossible to do a chart huggers Beethoven edition because you've you'd have to sort through. Okay. Which interpretation of this symphony is the best one and other Asala Mel as we know every single possible case. So most importantly, we have twelve hours to rank. We're very excited to do it. If for some reason familiar with that, we will go ahead people debate, we will rank it we will take other people's opinions into consideration because we're kind nice wonderful generous people like that. And it's a good debate. Because we've been listening to this for close to two weeks in some cases entire lives. It's fantastic. Some muscle, though, twelve dollars twelve slots me her piano man's relies house stranger tickets house. Vincent, man. The bridge storm front river dreams Bryce is sell. Okay. Twelve twelve spots if you had your personal others just curious one June now. Okay. As the worst Billy Joel album. So this is difficult for many reasons. One of which is that. So I've been dug ING of the both of these wonderful gentlemen to do Billy Joel for quite some time. And I realized upon actually being asked to do this episode. Wow. I only like like fifty percent of his music like on an album two basis came to him through classic rock radio growing yet. So there are like, you know, several albums worth of incredible singles than I like, but in terms of taking each help on its own. Alright. So I say this was this is a this is a nomination that I have some trepidation around. 'cause this is one that I know that many Billy Joel fans, and Billy Joel himself would push in this last, but I would not put it there. I would put it a little bit more mine on nation for number twelve is store front, and I say that with the acknowledgement that the kind of default recognize..

Billy Joel Wore Star Of David At Concert To Tell Trump 'Nazis Aren't Good People'
"To. Protest what the president said listen are there any particularly memorable moments for you particularly in this residence was the night I where the, star David after the Charlottesville incident?
