Forget Billy Joel's personality and image, and also the video.
This is an awesome song, lyrics are brilliant, sax solo is phenominal.
One of my childhood favourites, my uncle used to play it on an L.P. at my childhood farmhouse. Very fond memories!

209 Woman - John Lennon Woman - John Lennon

This song is hypnotic... It wasn't catchy at first but I swear I can never take off my earphones before the song ends...

The song's name was derived from a Home Improvement store in Houston (West End Lumber). - playstationfan66

212 If You Want My Love - Cheap Trick If You Want My Love - Cheap Trick

They always play this in concert and the girls swoon. - FearlessFreep

213 Smooth Operator - Sade Smooth Operator - Sade
214 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

Come on. The biggest band of the 80s isn't even on here?
Sunday Bloody Sunday is one of the best songs ever, and one of their best concert performances for the last 26 years

215 Janie's Got a Gun - Aerosmith Janie's Got a Gun - Aerosmith

285? I don't understand! Should be the #1 (Or in the top 5). The music and Steven Tyler voice are just incredible. The lyrics are amazing!

"Now that Janie's got a gun, she ain't never gonna be the same"

"She had to take him down easy and put a bullet in his brain. She said 'cause nobody believes me. The man was such a sleeze, he ain't never gonna be the same"

"Run away, run away from pain"
