Billy Joel

There are certain things about my childhood that really stand out to m and I can vividly remember. I feel lucky to be young enough to still remember these things, and I hope I never forget them.

Believe it or not, one of my favorite things to do when I was a wee tot would be to dance around to Billy Joel. I remember my parents putting on his "We Didn't Start the Fire" and me singing the part about Peter Pan and Disneyland because I thought those two things were cool. Still do. And I remember dancing to "River of Dreams" and counting out loud with my mom with the seconds in between the verse and chorus. And she and my dad would tell me about when they saw him in concert, which they still swear to this day was their favorite concert they've ever been to.

Tonight, I downloaded 43 of his songs and I've been listening to them and having all these really good memories float back to me, which makes me really happy. I don't know...Billy Joel just really made an impact on my childhood. To have certain songs of his bring back certain memories and for me to still remember the words all these years later makes me feel really good.

Tommorow I'll be heading to New Hampshire with the family (including puppy!) so there won't be any updates this weekend. Have a good weekend, all!
