There's An Old Man Sittin Next To Me

I only like one Billy Joel song, but I live for it: Piano Man. It has the exact histrionic crescendos and lack of subtlety I look for in my music. So when Fark called a seven year old's version "one of the greatest renditions of Piano Man," I had to check it out.

Well the kid sings it better than I do, but so could a beluga whale. There is a curious tag underneath the video that says: "This is a video response to Piano Man - played by Justin. "

A battle! Off to Justin's version.

After 6 seconds of Justin, it's clear the 7-year-old creamed him.

Still and all, Elton John trumps them both.

(Also: Does Billy Joel look like Jesse Jackson?)
