    You can't talk about the Piano Man in the same sentence as Mickey. Ok, so it might not be to everyones taste, but it never qualifies as the worst tune of all time - Billy Joel is too good a song writer. There are so many worse to choose from...

    The Birdie Song?
    The Gay Gordons?
    Anything from the Eurovision Song contest?

    I like a lot of Billy Joel songs. Piano Man, however, is sophomoric and self indulgent, with an inane melody line and lyrics that can only be described as being written during spasms of narcolepsy. It is the great fortune of society at large that one is highly unlikely to encounter it on classic 70's radio any longer. Were it not for the British National Anthem I would be stridently pushing this as worst song ever.

    This almost makes me rethink my list; all are worthy.

    True, their songs were usually great, but ''birthday'' is really a crappy song, probably their worst.

    Other than that, it's an ok song, right?"
    Anyway the post was the worse TUNE. A song is a TUNE with words. So the UK anthem beats out Piano Man on those grounds alone.
    BTW, have you heard Jelly Bowl, er Billy Joel's 'classical piano compositions?' Your description souds like it could be talking about them too. Totally derivative, like he took bits of Mozart and Chopin and such and jumbled them up in a mixer and arranged them like those magnetic letters for poetry some people put up on their refrigerator. Have you listened to the CD I am talking about?

    you guys will notice verse six of the 'British' national anthem (in actuality its the English national anthem, they sing it at rugby matches etc, we have our own, The Flower of Scotland), which is why we Scots can never accept it, NEVER!

    Lord grant that Marshal Wade
    May by thy mighty aid
    Victory bring.
    May he sedition hush,
    And like a torrent rush,
    Rebellious Scots to crush.
    God save the Queen!
