61 You're Only Human (Second Wind) You're Only Human (Second Wind)
62 Tomorrow Is Today Tomorrow Is Today

The lyrics speak for themselves. A dark yet beautiful song which Billy Joel wrote in his times of trouble, when he was struggling with suicidal thoughts. It may not be as complex as his later compositions, but it is truly written from the heart. At one point in life, everyone will find himself or herself into this song and crack a smile of loneliness and bitterness.

"People tell me life is sweeter, but I don't hear what they say. Nothing comes to change my life, so tomorrow is today"

Great Classical / genius modern piano music

66 Half a Mile Away Half a Mile Away

Definitely not his best song. I don't know what this guy below me is talking about, but a great song. I was in a phase not long ago when this song was all I listened to. It's really catchy and dare I say relatable?

Best billy Joel song! Has a lot of energy and connects with almost every guy.

69 Shameless Shameless

Garth Brooks' version is exceptional, but he can never top Billy's version

70 Somewhere Along the Line Somewhere Along the Line

I love this song. I love the images of youthful travel juxtaposed against thoughts of aging.

71 Nocturne Nocturne

It's a shame that this is such an unknown song. It's just an instrumental tune, but it is self composed. This song masterfully demonstrates his talent and what an amazing musician he is.

72 The Great Wall of China The Great Wall of China
73 Falling of the Rain Falling of the Rain

I can't believe it's so low on this list, this is definitely one of Joel's best.
