Song 44 Billy Joel

Neurotic Weirdness Week! Sock it to Me!

Bill Joel - Pressure, 1982

'You used to call me paranoid - pressure! But even you cannot avoid - pressure!' Billy Joel's all stressed out! And can you blame him? Barking dogs, splashing cars, carnivorous carpets and killer TVs. A lot to deal with in four and a half minutes. Plus he seems to be stuck in the same room Platinum Blonde found themselves confined to back in Song 62, but with a bigger TV. Is there someone out there kidnapping pop stars and forcing them to sit in uncomfortable chairs watching television and singing unhappily? If so, I want in on it.
