Are you kidding me? This is perfection. Educate yourselves, buckos.
WHAT A GREAT POST
this is the most beautiful of all posts
one of my fave songs, will always know all the words
Sophomore year of high school my World History teacher played this and after school I made my mom take me to the store so I could buy a Billy Joel (who I had never heard before) CD and memorize all the lyrics to this song. Which I did.
I imagined myself very indie and cool.
Reblogging for the sheer effort of all those links.
Not long after the song came out, I sat down with my mom and read out all of the things that I didn’t know what they were and she explained them all to me one by one, since she was born in 48. It was awesome and I learned a lot. (A few of them she didn’t remember, but not many.)
I’m pretty sure this song is the reason I’m a history major.
