Music that Makes Us Sing (Voiceboks!)

I MUST, I MUST, I MUST indulge my obsession with Billy Joel Today. 

I heart him. Possibly more than any other artist. Possibly. 

And choosing one would make me feel guilty. I have to offer several. LOL. 

Piano Man. I mean, classic, right? This very well may be the first not-preschool-song I learned all the lyrics to. I absolutely love the images he portrays: "making love to their tonic and gin",  the bartender who wants to be a movie star, and the waitress who is practicing politics. LOVE it. All of it. And I can feel the camaraderie they all have.

Uptown girl!- okay, this is only slightly embarrassing to admit, but, always the romantic, back when I was in Jr.High and I had NO idea that "uptown" girl meant that she was a rich girl, I used to imagine this was my theme song and would sing it in my head as I swaggered my 13 year old butt down the hallways. (Well, it switched between this one and "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison, but whatevs.)  ~eye roll~ Jeez, I was presumptuous.

In high school, our Madrigals (kind of the school Glee Club) would do a fundraiser every year at Valentines day. People could purchase a "singing valentine" and they would go around in groups of 4 or 5  and sing various love songs, (Earth Angel, In the Still of the Night, you know...) presenting the receiver with a sucker that was shaped like lips. I was the lucky receiver of THIS song. From my ballroom dance partner, Paul. I loved this song before then, but now it's an especially fond memory.
