In this episode of Video Killed the Radio Star we look back on some of singer/songwriter Billy Joel's best-known videos. From 'Allentown,' the story of a town where the men had to enlist in the military during the Vietnam War due to factory shut downs, to 'Uptown Girl,' a light hearted video set in New York in the 80s. Directors Jay Dubin, Russell Mulcahy and Andy Morahan take us behind the cameras to discuss some of Billy Joel's greatest hits and videos. Listed by the RIAA as the sixth best-selling artist of all time, singer/songwriter Billy Joel has been one of the most significant forces in pop music since his emergence in the 1970s. In a career that has spanned over 40 years Joel had a string of top 40 hits in the 70s, 80s and 90s and has achieved 33 top 40 hits in the United States alone. Joel was inducted into the songwriters Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. Although he has stopped writing original music Billy Joel continues to play live shows and in recent years has performed a series of successful concerts with fellow singer/songwriter Elton John. Songs include: Tell Her About It; Uptown Girl; Allentown; The Longest Time; The Downeaster Alexa; River of Dreams.
