Quasi: Drunken Tears
I love the way this song smashes into your ears at the start. Piano, cymbals, drums. Then the piano starts the melody - and boy does it start - just rolling along with it's own funky little tail slapping it's ass on the backbeat, but hey, the piano man is only getting started here. The bridge, oh, man... the bridge is like getting stuffed into a metal garbage can and rolled down, if not off, that bridge... by your girlfriend.
All you gotta remember about this song is: it's one voice, twenty fingers, 88 keys, and a drum kit. Oh yeah, there are some strings in there as well and backing vocals and.... and it's great.
