The album was [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Billy Joel[/lastfm]’s seventh and sold over 7 million copies here in the U.S. Glass Houses featured his first #1 single. Five songs hits the charts. Can you guess which one it was his first to reach the top?

You May Be Right? No, you’re not!

All For Leyna? Nope!

Don’t Ask Me Why? Not the one!
But check out this great live version!

Sometimes A Fantasy? Not it!

Put on your bright orange pair of pants. Billy Joel’s first #1 was “It’s Still Rock N’ Roll To Me!”
