    I know this is one of your faves, Daniel. Must say it's a real fence kicker (sad song).

    It's a song that will last forever. Remember the first time you heard it? It blew me away.

    And this; Billy Joel talking about the song by his friend Jimmy Webb at an awards presentation:


    Also this excellent piano version by Alan Pasqua, just stunning:


    This is nice, too, another instrumental:

    Had this problem yesterday, but it fixed itself. All I can see of our posts is the writing and a blank black screen where the songs use to be... Suggestions?
