My young cousin wants to join the marines. The other day he made a comment about “Parris Island, South Carolina, baby” and how he can’t wait. Of course, this oldie but goodie from Billy Joel came to mind. My mom always liked Billy Joel and when I was younger I liked his pop stuff, but would always fast forward to the likes of “Goodnight Saigon” and “Allentown.” It’s funny how your tastes and appreciations change as you mature.
