Billy Joel's “Piano Man” dominated the readers’ vote for last week’s installment of “100 Songs Every Long Islander Should Know.”
The classic landed just short of the overall Top 5, though we did get a new entry. Ryan Star's "Last Train Home" pulled into the Top 5 station, pushing out Bayside's "Montauk." For those keeping track at home, the current standings among readers are: 1. Straylight Run, “Your Name Here (Sunrise Highway)” 2. Billy Joel, “The Downeaster 'Alexa' ” 3. Ryan Star, "Last Train Home" 4. The Weather Girls, “It's Raining Men” 5. The Movielife, “Jamaica Next”
However, the Top 5 is in for a massive shake-up next week, as the top of the list arrives today, including two more from Joel and Public Enemy's “Fight the Power.” How will the votes stack up? Find out next week.
No. 1, Billy Joel
