    No need to be mad, it's perfectly understandable.

    A few days ago I listened to the amazingly beautiful "Leningrad" song, and out of curiosity I checked wiki to see how many weeks it peaked at #1.
    I was stunned to find out that it reached #15 in Holland and #53 in the UK. It didn't chart in the US at all (!!).

    He is a best-selling artist, but I don't think he'd end up on people's lists of most famous artists.
    That list is reserved for artists like Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elton John and David Bowie - artists with a more outspoken or recognizable personality. Billy Joel is just...Billy Joel.

    I discovered him when we did the Billy Joel music top ten, that is to say, I already knew most of these songs (his biggest hits anyway) but now I could connect them with an artist.

    Thanks @Willie Oleson, i feel so much better know. :D

    You're right "Leningrad" is a wonderful song it's one of his better songs on his album "Storm Front", this song has so many message in a song, it's shame it never peaked higher than #15. :(

    Yes you're right @Willie Oleson, he's one of the best selling artist but just like you said, i never saw him as a famous artist like Elton John, Madonna, Tina Tunrer or any other artist in that range. Billy Joel is just doing his own thing and with all thas succes i was suprised he only recorded 12 studio albums from 1971-1993, so yes you can say indeed he is a great artist. ;)

    Ok, that's great @Willie Oleson, it's always nice to discover new artist with the top 10, i hope Billy Joel will come back with a top 10 someday, now even ore that i have more songs to discover i's sure my top 10 will change. :)

    P.J. Proby is someone I should find out more about. I know that Lennon & McCartney gave him one of their unused songs but that's about the extent of it.

    I just ordered Kylie Christmas Snow Queen Edition. I already owned Kylie Christmas and didn't want to fork out full price for the extra tracks when it first came out. So I waited a year. :)

    To be honest, I've bought that single for the NRG remix by Xenomania.
    PJ Proby's vocals sound a bit cheesy, but I don't know if that applies to all his records.
