Billy Joel is one of the greats. A top notch performer and musician, and he's really one of the few songwriters I can relate to his words and characters in his songs, and who's music can also rock and at times send chills.

Anyone who can write a song like "Piano Man", then follow that up with "Just the Way You Are" and then follow that up with "Goodnight Saigon" is just as eclectic as the Beatles and Macca.

Billy is a huge fan of the Beatles. And on his My Lives box set he covers' the Beatles "I'll Cry Instead" which is just one of the best Beatles and worthy covers I have ever heard.
And if I said I really knew you well what would your answer be?

"Christmas In Fallujah"
Words & Music By Billy Joel
Preformed By Cass Dillon
2007

It's Evening In the Desert
I'm Tired and I'm cold
But I'm just a soilder
I do what I am told

We Came with the Crusaders
to save the holy land
It's Christmas In Fallujah
and no one gives a damn

And I just got your letter
And this is what I read you said

I'm fading from your memory
so I'm just as good as dead

We are the armies of the empire
We are the legionnaires of Rome

It's Christmas In Fallujah
and we ain't never coming home

We came to bring these people freedom
we came to fight the infidel

there is no justice in the desert
Because there is no god in hell

They say Osama's in the mountains
deep in a cave near Pakistan

But there's a sea of blood in Baghdad
A sea of oil in the sand

Between the Tigris and Euphrates
another day comes to an end

it's Christmas In Fallujah
Peace on earth goodwill to men

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

it's Christmas In Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

Merry Christmas from Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

Merry Christmas from Fallujah
hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

hallelujah hallelujah
(hoorah)

hallelujah hallelujah
Hoorah!
