"This time, I really need the money, because my car insurance rates have gone through the roof." 

I'm not a huge Billy Joel fan, but I figured that if I want to ever see him in concert, I probably should do so soon.

He's actually pretty funny in concert, full of self-deprecating humor and silliness. Thanks to him, I learned about this amusing controversy during Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign from 2000.

Setlist from February 23, 2008 in Anaheim:

Prelude/Angry Young Man
My Life
Everybody Loves You Now
The Entertainer
The Ballad Of Billy The Kid
New York State Of Mind
Root Beer Rag
Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)
Don't Ask Me Why
Captain Jack
She's Always A Woman
Keeping the Faith
River Of Dreams
Highway To Hell
We Didn't Start The Fire
It's Still Rock And Roll To Me
You May Be Right
Scenes From An Italian Restaurant
Only The Good Die Young
Piano Man

I would've liked to hear Goodnight Saigon, This Night, The Downeaster "Alexa", Leningrad, Say Goodbye To Hollywood, Stiletto...oh well. I'm also surprised that Uptown Girl was omitted; the only time I've ever seen it performed is in the clip below.
