4 Pressure - Billy Joel

Billy recorded many "blockbuster" albums and hits but in 1982 he gave us the "The Nylon Curtain" album which wasn't that big. Too bad. I adore "Pressure" - probably my favorite Billy Joel song - Irina2932

The Nylon Curtain is Billy's second best album (after The Stranger), and this is one of the best New Wave songs. Such a shame it doesn't get much airtime. - PetSounds

My favorite Genesis song from "We Can't Dance" (1991). I'm sure, it deserved a much bigger recognition - Irina2932

It's a good song earning
