Billy Joel - And So It Goes (Miami - January 31, 2015)
This superb recording literally cuts a choral swath through Canada, the United States and the British Isles, by including musical material that literally helped shape the cultural identity of those nations. Recorded by Nobert Kraft at St. The award-winning Elora Singers is an all-professional vocal ensemble founded in , that has thrilled the world with many memorable performances, as well as bringing Canadian vocal chamber repertoire to the international stage.
It appeared as the tenth and final track of his studio album Storm Front. The original demo was released on the box set My Lives. Their relationship was dramatic, as Macpherson was only a teenager while Joel was reaching his mids. Joel dated Macpherson for a brief time shortly before becoming involved with model Christie Brinkley , who would ultimately become his second wife. The song is unique for Joel as it is written in iambic tetrameter. In the original demo version of "And So It Goes," Joel sings the melody simply, accompanied by a simple piano backdrop, in a style very reminiscent of a hymn. On the album version, Joel sings and plays all the instrumentation piano and synthesizers.
I was first introduced to this song when I was just 13 years old. Back before I knew I wanted to be a professional singer, or a professional anything for that matter. I remember being drawn to the simple melody and the lovely poem. We had sung it for our troubadour choir and competed in many choral competitions with it. Anyone who has experienced the break of a long term, love filled relationship will understand and feel the meaning in these words all too familiarly. I found myself singing this song from time to time to remind me of this feeling and to know that when you do give your love to someone, there is always the chance it could end in tears and a broken heart. Things change between people, sometimes one person might recognize it, other times it goes unsaid and years later, the unthinkable happens.
