VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Billy Joel – ‘Uptown Girl’

February 19, 2018

An homage to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, ‘Uptown Girl’ was Billy Joel’s first and only Number One hit.

And it’s not hard to see why – this is the kind of exuberant record that’s aimed straight for the neck down.

The video features Billy in the role of a grease monkey who attempts to win the affections of his Uptown Girl, here played by supermodel and future wife Christie Brinkley.

All well and good, but did you know that Billy Joel was dating Elle MacPherson when he wrote this?

Awkward…
