Song Of The Day: Billy Joel – “A Matter Of Trust” (1986)

Happy Birthday to Billy Joel on his 69th birthday today. Plenty of Rock snobs and purists turn their nose down on this guy – and let’s face it, he DID churn out a lot of cheese over the course of his career – but he also wrote some really great songs and produced some fine pop singles, and in the spirit of the Big Inclusive Tent of Rock we’ve got to give him his due. We’ve always loved this one, Billy’s still pretty fresh-faced in 1986, and it makes you wonder if attitudes towards him might have been different if he’d played guitar his entire career instead of piano.
