Feb 22, 2013 —  Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” unfailingly puts smiles on the faces of bargoers every time it’s played over the speakers or covered live. Like the host of characters in Joel’s classic tune, Americans are always in the mood for a melody when they sip on a cold beer or fancy cocktail at an urban watering hole.

At piano bars in Joel’s hometown of New York City and other cities across America you might plop down next to John, who’s quick with a joke – but might not light up your smoke (there are laws against that these days) – or a Paul, a real estate novelist, who’s happy to buy a drink for a pretty girl, since he’s never had time for a wife, or so the song goes.

Then there’s the Davys of the pub, who are in the navy and probably will be for – okay, you get the idea. American pub and bar patrons – whether they’re in Los Angeles or Washington, D.C. – love hearing a couple piano measures in the background as they reminisce with old friends, take a break after work, or chat up a new, mysterious friend at the bar counter.

Whether it’s jazz, blues, or the “Piano Man,” Americans love listening to a rousing piano tune before, during, and after catching a nice buzz on the weekend (or weekdays). If the right song plays and the conversation with your new “friend” goes well, you could very well be humming “Oh, la la la, di da da” as you stroll out of the bar and into the promising evening.
