While I don't necessarily consider Billy Joel underrated, I do think he doesn't get his due as a rocker and a songwriter.

These three songs demonstrate that nicely, and all happen to be personal favorites.

First, one you don't hear that often, Angry Young Man. Featuring some real good piano work.


Next, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.


Next, a song that would fit right in lyrically with the likes of John Lennon or Warren Zevon. Pressure.

Since Yacht Rock is all the rage around here, figure I'd add my two cents. Featuring a good song from a fantastic album.

From the album Aja
Steely Dan
"Deacon Blues"

My favorite song from one of my favorite albums. I'm beginning to sound like Richard Christie.

Yardbirds seemed to have more success when Jimmy Page was not in the band
