I have a special connection to Billy Joel. I hear his songs and I feel at home. Growing up on Long Island, Billy Joel is like a neighbor. The Billy Joel Greatest Hits was my very first greatest hits CD. I could and still can recite every song by heart. Many of the songs hold special memories – especially from my high school days.
