EP 104 – Album Retrospective: My Lives Disc 2 + New Billy Joel Single Announcement

Although Disc Two of My Lives kicks off with a live version of a classic 70s song, the rest of the track list features Billy Joel B-Sides and early versions of songs from the 80s along with a few album tracks. 

While it seems random initially, there’s a light narrative running through the selections. Here, you can compare work-in-progress tracks to the final versions, along with hit songs from the same era. Together, they provide insight into Joel’s writing style. 

We see the benefits of saving riffs, ideas, and whole songs for the right moment. And how he often begins by imitating other artists before finding his voice in a composition. 

Join us as we dig deep into My Lives Disc 2.
