Songs on Saturday ~ Piano Man

Booze is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

I’m English, but I’ve spent time in bars in most of the major cities in Europe and the United States.  You know that you’re spreading it a little widely when you walk into a bar in say ~ New York, just off Madison Avenue, and the barman knows immediately that you drink a stirred vodka martini, or several.


I’ve spent far too much time in bars exactly like the one in this song, except there was usually a slightly inebriated woman sitting at the bar trying to get picked up for casual sex.  Sad really.  And the piano man was never as good as Billy Joel.

I don’t pick up women in bars,

and I don’t have casual sex.

  1. I love this song!!! I think it is more like the American TV show ‘Cheers’. I liked going to bars when I was a kid (yeah, it was odd, but it happened.). People knew me and took care of me. When I got older, I wasn’t allowed in bars anymore and I didn’t really miss it. But, the people in the bars were still my friends. (and friends of my parents!)
    Bars aren’t sad, not unless you want them to be.


    1. Sad people often gravitate to bars. I don’t drink anymore, but I still go into cool bars. Cheers Kris. 💖💖💖

      1. People go where there are people. It used to be churches. I think it is difficult to find a spot where you can hang out and meet someone. Online is fun, but entirely dubious at times!

  2. It is kind of sad having to wait around to hopefully get picked up.
