Get that song out of my head! {Billy Joel}

Continuing our “Get that song out of my head!” feature – which is stunting our productivity!

GET THAT SONG OUT OF MY HEAD NOWToday’s “curse” is Billy Joel: For the Longest Time.

This one just “popped” into my head by itself – and got stuck for a while. You have to watch it in its entirety to effectively remove it.

Billy Joel – For the Longest Time

How many of you knew that Billy Joel sang all the parts himself? Impressive!

The song features Joel on lead vocals and all backing vocals. Two musical instruments are present in the song: a bass guitar and a snare drum being played with brushes. When the song is covered by vocal groups, the bass part is typically sung. All other sounds in the song are Joel’s vocals, along with percussive sounds such as finger snaps and hand claps. Phil Ramone and Joel had intended to feature a vocal group but Joel recorded each of the parts himself.
