This was a great record, and so is this video. At the time of the records release the Cold War had just come to an end. This film is a review of the world from 1945-1989, done in quick frames as in "Classical Gas." That video reminded me of this one and after watching it I felt like posting it here to share.
Even if you're not a history buff, the song itself really does rock! And hit the link to the alternate version, which though quite similar, is quicker paced and packed with more images.
Here's a link to Billy Joel's original video. For me, it doesn't rise to near the level of the previous two, which were made by fans. You decide:
Inspired by Mason Williams’ 1968 hit video/song “Classical Gas”, this one, too, will stand the test of time.
