The Evolution of Music

Billy Joel's stories were top notch
Always enjoyed his music very much
He claimed only the good die young
So what have you been up to my old chum?

Grew up with bands like Three Days Grace
With mad Gontier screaming in my face
Bobbed my head to the heavy sound
But the constant rage really brought me down

Now there's kids like Justin Bieber
I claim bubonic, they say it's fever
Not his "music" that makes people stare
It's because of that ridiculous hair!

    HEE HEE! Joel was great....Don't know the rest. as for Bieber...he has one or two good ones, and he has changed his hair style so...maybe you have to perk your ears up a little more to hear the good lyrics! ;)

    Billy Joel is one of my favorites when it comes to the older music. I try to be open-minded about the newer and popular artists... but I really can't get myself to like Bieber whatsoever... lol!
