It's Still Rock and Roll to Me" is a hit 1980 song performed by Billy Joel, from the hit album Glass Houses. The song was number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for two weeks, from July 19 through August 1, 1980. The song spent 11 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and was the 7th biggest hit of 1980 according to American Top 40. The song is an examination of the themes of a musician's declining fame and changing public tastes that were expressed in his 1975 hit "The Entertainer".
David from Paoli, Pa"It's Still Billy Joel To Me" was written and recorded in 1980, three years before Yankovic so much as published an album. It's a bit harsh to color his entire career with it. Geoff from Nacle, NjDave (and others)- I've gotta disagree with you on calling piano man Billy Joel's "one truly good song. Nothing, Rock and Roll is just a simple pop song, that could have been written by any number of pop musicians who couldn't write a true lasting hit if they had detailed instructions on how to do so. You might argue that It's Still Rock and Roll To Me is still popular, but only in a very mild way, it doesn't come close to getting the rotation of his one truly good song, which of course is Piano Man. We Didn't Start the Fire, well that's just plain drivel, crapola, sorry people, but that's my oppinion, carry on.

You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money. Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new sound . Hot funk, cool punk, even if it's old junk. It's still rock and roll to me. Oh, it doesn't matter what they say in the papers. Cause it's always been the same old scene. It's the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways. Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me.
