Billy Joel's "She's Always A Woman" is chilling!

 

Immediately after hearing it, I was struck by Billy Joel’s “She’s Always A Woman.” The song is so haunting; it gives me goose bumps up and down my arm. Listening to it, I envision a seemingly mean-spirited, selfish and deceitful woman who only seems that way because it’s the only way she knows to survive. This “woman” that Billy is singing about is a cutthroat person on the surface, but there’s so much more that lies beneath the shrewdness. What lies beneath is a mystery; it could be her family life or strictly genes. Without a doubt, the “woman” is an attractive or probably even gorgeous woman who’s usually upfront with her harshness, yet this doesn’t deter men from lusting for her and it doesn’t deter women from wanting to be her friend. We all have known this “woman” in our life, she’s an irresistible bitch. Her cruelty makes her interesting, and she’s a quandary to everyone because they wonder why they find themselves trying to befriend this “woman.” I’ve always wondered about mean, bossy people and why some are in ways likable and some are not. They always say nice guys finish last, but ultimately I think it’s more about having a balance: being an friendly person, yet not being a pushover, and being aware and not naïve. Okay, there’s my psychology/sociology analysis.

Yeah that one is excellent. The thing that makes Mr. Joel so great I think is his ability to vary his style so much but yet still keep the same spirit in his music.

 

I mean...look at for instance, Movin' Out, then Downeaster Alexa. They're so different but its still Billy Joel, you know? I dunno if I'm making sense but...yeah.

yes, New York State Of Mind is amazing. it compares and describes NYC beatifully!!!

 

Some folks like to get away

Take a holiday from the neighborhood

Hop a flight to Miami Beach

Or to Hollywood

But I'm talking a Greyhound

On the Hudson River Line

I'm in a New York state of mind

 

I've seen all the movie stars

In their fancy cars and their limousines

Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens

But I know what I'm needing

And I don't want to waste more time

I'm in a New York state of mind

 

It was so easy living day by day

Out of touch with the rhythm and blues

But now I need a little give and take

The New York Times, The Daily News

 

It comes down to reality

And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide

Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside

I don't have any reasons

I've left them all behind

I'm in a New York state of mind

I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line

'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind

brain stew!!

 

I'm having trouble trying to sleep

I'm counting sheep but running out

As time ticks by

And still I try

No rest for crosstops in my mind

 

On my own... here we go

 

My eyes feel like they're gonna bleed

Dried up and bulging out my skull

My mouth is dry

My face is numb

freaked up and spun out in my room

 

On my own... here we go

 

My mind is set on overdrive

The clock is laughing in my face

A crooked spine

My sense dulled

Passed the point of delerium

 

On my own... here we go

 

My eyes feel like they're gonna bleed

Dried up and bulging out my skull

My mouth is dry

My face is numb

freaked up and spun out in my room

 

On my own... here we go
