This mash-up was quite shocking when I first saw it. I checked it out because I was such an unusual pairing--Billy Joel vs. Jay-Z. And, it was a Billy Joel song I had never heard before, well, since I'm not a Billy Joel fan and what not. To this point, all I really remember about Billy Joel is when the super-cool lifeguards use to play it at the swimming pool when I was a pup.
But, when I listened to it what came through my headphones was genius. I never knew that the former Mr. Christy Brinkley had such aggression in him. And to have that paired up with a Timbo beat is incredible.
