It was a pretty good crowd for a Saturday

First posted on Paperclippings blog on: Wednesday, December 14, 2005

I was listening to the radio in the car this evening. As I turned the station I caught the tail end a song that took me back to a concert in Denver 16 years ago. My husband and I, along with some friends of ours, were sitting in the 14th row of the floor section listening to Billy Joel...the "Piano Man" himself. After three encores and cheering our lungs out waiting for another, out he came to do one final number...the one we had been waiting for... he sang a few lines and then let the crowd fill in the chorus...
Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright
The crowd went wild...he sang more lines. Then, as he sang out these next lines, the crowd roared...
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while.
It WAS a Saturday and he had us feeling alright.
