Music Monday - "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" - Billy Joel (1977)

"Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" was on Billy Joel's The Stranger album (1977).  It was never a '45, but it still got airplay back in the 1970's ... and I always have to turn it up when it comes on SiriusXM.

The song has three parts:  a gentle opening about two classmates meeting for a glass of wine, a jazz section with lots of brass, and then a rock section about Brenda and Eddie.  It's a complex composition, and I think a pretty amazing song.

Do you remember this one?  What is your favorite Billy Joel song?   I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.
