Billy Joel – "Goodnight Saigon”
From "The Nylon Curtain"
This is Glenn's self proclaimed favorite Billy Joel album and I believe this is one of the finest songs on the album.
"Goodnight Saigon" is emotional and genuine. It truly draws you in, even if you have never experienced the camaraderie of soldiers fighting side by side and all believing in the greater good to make a difference, you can somehow get a vibe of that kind of relationship and commitment through Billy's lyrics and the arrangement of the song.
I always get a little emotional if I listen to this song too closely because it is just so amazingly vivid in it's descriptions of these brave people and their surroundings.
Check out the song and video on this YouTube clip. It is truly an inspiration and a thing of beauty.
