This song by Billy Joel first appeared on his 1978 album ‘52nd Street’. A single version was released in the autumn of 1978 and reached No.2 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart. Early in 1979 it peaked at No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and got to No.12 in the UK.
The song begins with drums and electric bass, followed by a keyboard riff. The riff is also used as a fill between verse and chorus sections and is also played at the end. The section order is intro-verse-fill-chorus-bridge-v-f-c-b-solo-c-outro. Chicago members Peter Cetera and Donnie Dacus performed the backing vocals and sang along with Billy Joel during the bridge and in the outro "Keep it to yourself, it's my life".
