If you were to listen to music that was around fifty to sixty years old, chances are that you would notice that age of the song since it would not be all that relevant to you and what’s more is that it would have a very retro feel to it that would be undeniable. However, some musicians managed to create songs that were so timeless that they would not be out of place in the top charts of the modern day once all has been said and is now out of the way. The reason behind this is that the subject matter that they tackled was universal, and perhaps the single biggest example of a musician who managed to write songs that will pretty much always be something that people would want to listen to and relate to is Billy Joel.
Joel created hits like Uptown Girl, and going to a Bill Joel concert is the sort of thing that virtually anyone would enjoy regardless of how old they are or what type of cultural background they originate from. The great thing about Joel is that he manages to emit a youthful exuberance which is what made his original songs so fun in the first place.
Despite being 72 years old, Joel has a great deal of energy in him and this gives him the kind of stage presence that the vast majority of musicians could only ever dream of attaining. He is a start for the ages, and he likely still has a few more albums in him that you would want to end up checking out. Listening to him can make you feel like all is right with the world.
