For our season-ending “Listener’s Choice” epipod, we dive into Billy Joel’s fifth album, his 1977 offering, “The Stranger.” The album made it to No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 thanks to singles such as “Just the Way Your Are,” “Only the Good Die Young,” and “She’s Always a Woman,” but it has long since become critically appreciated (especially by fans) due to Joel’s ability to capture the Big Apple via tunes “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)” and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” along with “Vienna.”

You can listen to The Stranger by Billy Joel on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and those little juke boxes in the booths of those old school pizza restaurants in New York.
