Listen for the replay and win!
The 101 number one song of the day was written and recorded by a one time lounge singer who used
the name Bill Martin to prove to the world he was more than a pop crooner.
Up to this time he’d had several hits but this song came from an album that was specifically designed to “throw a rock at the image people had of (him.)” Not all the critics liked the result but the public sure did and it gave the man his first number one single. On July 29, 1980 he was using his given name – Billy Joel and this is the song “It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me.”
