Most Uplifting Billy Joel Songs

PetSounds
A good deal of Billy Joel's songs are negative, but there are many in his deep catalogue to raise the spirit.

The Top TenXW

1Vienna
2Leningrad
3And So It Goes

Yes, I have paid attention to the lyrics. I've also seen Billy in concert and I can play every song on every album from Piano Man through The Bridge, plus a handful from Storm Front and River of Dreams. The singer is obviously insecure, but it's a beautiful song about opening up after being hurt--much like "An Innocent Man." - PetSounds

Uplifting? Have any of you paid attention to the lyrics?

4Piano Man
5The Longest Time
6New York State of Mind

"Comes back to reality, but it's fine by me, 'cause I've let it slide..." - PetSounds

7An Innocent Man
8You're Only Human (Second Wind)V1 Comment
9Only the Good Die Young

I find this song strangely uplifting. Don't ask me why. - PetSounds

10Keeping the Faith

"Tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems..." - PetSounds

The Contenders

11She's Always a Woman

Again, have any of you listened to the lyrics? This is an anti-love song. ''She'll promise you more than the garden of Eden, then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding''. Sounds great.
