Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** "Piano Man" is very biographic. He was supporting himself by playing in a piano bar while waiting out a bad record deal and thought no one would believe his story, so he wrote a song about it. Everyone in the song is based on a real person.
** ''An Innocent Man'', an upbeat and nostalgic album reflected Billy's bachelorhood and newfound romances with Christie Brinkley and Creator/ElleMacPherson. ''River Of Dreams'' reflected Billy and Christie's marital woes and eventual divorce, along with Billy's legal issues (his ex-brother-in-law, who managed Billy's finances, was found to have cheated him for millions of dollars).

* ACappella: "The Longest Time". Slight aversion in that, while it's become an a cappella standard, the original version on ''An Innocent Man'' included a bass guitar.

** "Close to the Borderline" would classify as a definite 5, and contains one of the few guitar solos in a Billy Joel song.
