New Billy Joel Q&A – How Do You Write Songs, And Where Do You Get Your Ideas?

In 1983, Billy Joel did a Q&A session with students at a night school in New York, and was asked about his songwriting process, and where he would get ideas for songs. In his answer, Billy gave a funny explanation for why he usually begins a song by writing the music first. You can watch the Q&A in the video below, and view other past sessions in our Billy Joel “Questions & Answers” lecture series archive!
