Sleeping with the Television On – Billy Joel

One of Billy Joel’s many, many, maaaaaaaany songs about women who had previous encounters with men which turned them off from future relationships (Uptown Girl, An Innocent Man, etc. etc. etc.). However, these women have various qualities that Joel will talk up throughout the song. This reminds me strongly of Shakespeare’s admiration of the young man within his sonnet sequence.
