  • This was Billy Joel's contribution to the movie Ruthless People. It can be heard twice in the movie, first when Bette Midler is working out, and again in the closing credits.
  • Joel grew to hate the song and stopped performing it in concert. He even refused to allow it to be on his second Greatest Hits compilation. >>
