* FanDumb: "Only the Good Die Young" was meet with controversy from many Catholics who considered it anti-Catholic and tried to have it banned. Joel was confused by this because, as he pointed out in an article about it, the song ends with the guy getting nowhere with the girl and she keeps her virginity.

* CriticalResearchFailure: A minor example. "Only The Good Die Young", has the lyric "you got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation", the sacrament of First Holy ''Communion'' is the one with the white dress.

** Not really a ''rhyme'', but ''Just The Way You Are'' has him very, ''very'' painfully pronouncing the word unspoken as un-SPOOK-en. It wasn't even an end-of-lyric rhyme, so why he pronounced it that way is a mystery.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece
** "Big Shot" sings about attending hot spots like Elaine's (it closed in 2011) and wearing Halston original dresses (Haltson died in 1990).
** "Sleeping With The Television On" makes reference to the time when TV broadcasts ended and began at certain hours, as opposed to now, when most broadcasts run 24/7, making the line about waking up to the white noise irrelevant.

** ''Turnstiles'' was written and recorded at a time when Billy and his first wife relocated to [[BigApplesauce New York City]] after leaving California, and songs like "New York State Of Mind", "Say Goodbye To Hollywood" and "Summer, Highland Falls" (as well as the album cover, shot in an abandoned NYC subway station) reflect the move. "Summer, Highland Falls" also reflects the depression both were facing at the time.
