“Nowadays you can’t be too sentimental…” – Billy Joel
“Don’t waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers.” – Billy Joel
Amalia and I were driving into work this morning and “It’s Still Rock and Roll to me” came on the radio by Billy Joel. It’s a song I enjoy but I never really paid attention to the lyrics. Today I caught him saying “you can’t be too sentimental”. Well that’s what we’ve been saying the past 230+ days in this blog. Then I really listened to it, this time on the way to the gym this afternoon and the lyrics are awesome. Billy Joel is saying it’s all the same shit… or at least that’s my interpretation of it. People are so caught up in new trends, buying new things, listening to the newest music… appreciate the new and the old stuff but don’t hold on to anything and don’t be overly influenced by things. Things don’t change anything and at the end of the day, a cheap pair of sneakers get you to the same place as a new pair of Yeezy’s. Rock on Billy Joel, Mic Drop.
