Midweek Mixtape | 82 Songs To Get You Thinking And/Or Drinking (Side 3)

450

According to a theory I just came across online, Billy Joel’s signature song Piano Man actually takes place in a gay bar, only the title character doesn’t know it. Could it be true? Well, only Billy knows for sure, of course. But it does put a new spin on lyrics about Paul, “who never had time for a wife” and “Davy, who’s still in the Navy / and probably will be for life” — not to mention the whole “Man, what are you doing here?” thing. While you ponder that, here are 82 more singles, videos, cover tunes and remixes to get you thinking and/or drinking — including plenty you won’t find anywhere else. Today’s tastiest treats are flagged with a 🥨. This mixtape is makin’ me thirsty!
