Who is this about?
friend went to a small private show, and she reported back that joel said it was about himself. he was sending up his fame, and who he was becoming at the time. but that there might be just a touch of bianca jagger in there too.
Billy Joel was a cross dresser?
Always thought it was about the model he married....
He didn't marry the model until much much later.
Uptown Girl was about Brinkley.
Uptown Girl was about a model he was with before Brinkley.
Brinkley was just the model he was banging around the time the video was shot.
Billy Joel sucks shit.
I always thought he sang, "And the people that you know Abby Lanes".
I thought it was "the people that you knew out in Leans" like slang for New Orleans. This song always makes me sad. It reminds me of wasting my early 20s on booze, blow, and trying to collect as much designer shit as possible. Everything to try to impress other people.
