Most Uplifting Billy Joel Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Vienna
2 Leningrad
3 And 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?

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

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

7 An Innocent Man
8 You're Only Human (Second Wind) V 1 Comment
9 Only the Good Die Young

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

10 Keeping the Faith

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

The Contenders

11 Uptown Girl

This song is just so catchy

12 She'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.
