In 1977 Billy Joel finally broke through all the barriers and recorded The Stranger. This album finally rocketed him to stardom. The album stayed on the charts for six weeks.
One of the songs from the album “Just the Way You Are”” received two Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. A total of four singles came from this album “Movin’ On (Anthony’s Song)””, “Just the Way You Are,” Önly the Good Die Young”, and “”She’s Always a Woman to Me.”
The album also included one of my favorites “Scenes From an Italian Restaurant” which I always felt I should listen to while eating lasagna and drinking red wine.
