Dont Ask Me Why - Billy Joel - Greatest Hits Volume I & II (CD)

The track contains all acoustic and Latin percussion instruments performing in an Afro-Cuban rhythmic style. An eclectic, instrumental "Latin Ballroom" piano solo, played over the bridge section after the second verse, is also featured in part of the song; Joel states that the mix for the midsection includes "fifteen pianos overdubbed on top of each other. It was released as the third single from the album Glass Houses and later included on Greatest Hits Volume 2.

Billboard Magazine found the song to be "catchy" and felt that Joel's vocal performance sounded similar to Paul McCartney. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Piano Man , Songs in the Attic , ; originally from Turnstiles , The Stranger , Glass Houses , I guess it's similar in musical style. General Comment His voice is or can be very similar to Mccartneys.

The melody and voice seemed McCartneyesque. Joel is actually more influenced by Lennon, but Macca's influence is plain to see. It's so cool and easy. In this thing the 12 Gardens version cannot reach the album version. I agree with you that this song is about a high society woman hiding and ignoring her roots. And then she has to face the fact that she can't hide where she comes from. And that's why she's using other means like speaking French which means she emigrated to France where she thinks she got rid of her roots.

Her "chances" were from my point of view that there would have been new perspectives or opportunities if she hadn't hidden her roots. Now that she isn't at her home where those chances exist but in France she lost them which means she lost opportunities that could have helped her and would not - as she thinks - ruin her.

I could retrieve it if I had to, but who would know where she buried it? She probably doesn't. Music hasn't been a priority for her for years now. Location: The Netherlands. This is the cd with an additional text in a red box on the front cover: 'Includes 4 bonus songs not available on the LP'.
