Billy Joel ft. Paul McCartney – Let It Be

This song goes against everything I stand for. All of the talk about modern philosophy for the modern man gets McCartney uncomfortable? English Irish guys were never known for their pondering. I’m not going to let it be if I can spend the rest of my waking hours on this earth pondering over why I’m a sharp cookie for letting it be.

Billy Joel is clearly the innocent bystander in all of this. He has been through his share of trials and tribulations. A Google search brought up this surprisingly good Daily News article.

Daily News – When Joel dated model Elle Macpherson, he thought she was “so tall, I look like Bubbles the Chimp next to her. I realized this was just not going to work.” Also, she was 19 and he was in his 30s. Through a mix-up, both Macpherson and the woman he dated next — Brinkley — ended up in Billy’s Central Park West apartment at the same time. Brinkley bowed out and he spent the night with Macpherson. But, Billy thought, “I couldn’t help thinking that Frank Sinatra would have made a threesome out of that night.”

Cheer up Billy. That’s nothing to hang your head in shame over. Sinatra set the bar high. But, of course, I appreciate the pondering and analysis that went into what could simply be remembered as a good night. (Yes I know I started the sentence with “but “)

I help people articulate what makes their service exciting, meaningful, and valuable to their stakeholders by identifying why they want to serve, what they are most proud of, what challenges they want to take on, and how they plan on showing results. I do that by researching issues, identifying clear positions, helping them align their positions with what their customers want, and managing work flow to deliver efficiently and effectively. In the future, I'd love to help companies improve on how they communicate with their customers.
