Wally's Records from Home

New York State Of Mind

5/9/2013

This is a good story actually. Bill Joel turns 64 today. When he was a young guy he moved to LA because you got to go to LA to make a break and he misses his home. Well Billy got home sick and when he got back to New York he wrote this song while he was on a Greyhound Bus crossing the Hudson river from his cross country trip back home from LA. This song was never a hit but became a huge hit after 9/11.
