(move cursor to 1:14 for Billy Joel's song he performed on Oprah "Only the Good Die Young"
His hair and eyes were surely as dark as the devil's
but his laugh made me forget
he was no saint -
was pretty sure 100 mph
with windows rolled down and speaker cranked
was a sin on any back country road...
I learned summer nights
could be exciting; even dangerous
for this Catholic girl.
I did fall in love that night,
but not with him. Just now,
had to think hard to remember his name,
but Billy Joel's still a favorite on my playlist.

This is a true story - some details have been left out as I'm sure they would bore everyone :) … I do remember running out the door before he could get out of the car - I did not want my mom and dad to meet him.
