ABC Wednesday - J is for ...




Just the song for the J prompt

One of my favourites and sung by none other than Billy Joel




Just The Way You Are

written and sung by Billy Joel was released in 1977. It reached number 1 on the US Billboard Easy Listening chart and won the 1978 Grammy Awards for Record of the year and Song of the year.

And my Bollywood choice is

Jis Gali Mein Tera

from the movie Kati Patang starring Asha Parekh and Rajesh Khanna and sung by the legendary Mukesh.

One of the most beautiful songs from the Bollywood films. They don't make songs like this anymore.

Have a jolly jewel of a day and check out some other entries at ABC Wednesday

  3. The Billy Joel song makes me a little teary - I love the lyrics. He was one of my mum's favourite singers, too. Teary in a good way, though!

    1. Hi Kat. Yes it has awesome lyrics - I think he wrote it from his heart and it touches a chord with many.
