Who doesn’t love Billy Joel? Although he’s had a long string of hits, one, in particular, stands out in everyone’s mind — Piano Man. What you might not know is that he wrote this song based on his life experiences. The words speak of his time working as a lounge musician in Los Angeles during his early years.
Tired of playing small, out-of-the-way venues, Joel made up his mind to go big. And boy, did he. People around the world love his music. What makes it so great is that while all his songs have a familiar sound, they’re each unique in that they tell a different story.
But it’s not just people who love this song. One dog proved he’s Billy Joel’s number one fan. In a video that’s been circulated around the internet, this pup doesn’t just want to listen, he also wants to perform. Throughout the 41 second video, viewers are thoroughly entertained.
Alexa gets it started
In the video, you see a gorgeous dog all curled up on the couch. He’s sound asleep and without a care in the world. Then, the owner tells Alexa to play, what else? Piano Man. The minute the pup hears the artist tickling the ivories, his ears perk up. Then, he lifts his entire head off the couch to look over at Alexa.
He wants to make it a duet
Almost immediately, the dog lets out a whining sound. After all, wouldn’t Piano Man be better if it was a duet instead of a solo piece? Well, he thinks so. Now fully awake, he’s paying close attention to the music. It’s so adorable.
The harmonica really got him going
At the sound of the harmonica playing, the pup puts his head back down on the couch and lets loose. He’s doing a great job “singing” along to the song. I get the feeling this pup has been a Billy Joel fan for a long time.
He does his best Billy Joel impersonation
With each new chord, the dog gets into the act even more. At one point, he lifts his head high while singing his little heart out. He must only like to sing and not dance because his body position on the couch never changes. But he uses his head to express delight in listening to Piano Man.
This dog’s a true performer
As the music continues, so does his singing. He then turns to look straight into the camera but without missing a note. Looking at his beautiful eyes, you can tell he’s really into the music. We’ve all seen videos of singing dogs but this one’s up there with the best of them.
Maybe he has a future in show business
I can just see it now. Billy Joel taking the stage when a gorgeous dog joins him. Then, the two of them give the audience the performance of a lifetime. Okay, maybe not, but if Billy Joel saw this video, I think he’d feel honored and proud.
Some people say it’s the sound of the piano and harmonica that make this pup howl. I prefer to believe he loves the song and enjoy singing. Either way, this is a great feel-good video that deserves to be watched. For sheer entertainment, check out the video below.
