Memoirs of a Gaijin Playlist

“Get It Right the First Time” by Billy Joel

Just before I left America, I was staying at the home of my good friend and fraternity brother Peter, and on the first night we listened to Billy Joel’s The Stranger on vinyl. I had never heard the album all the way through before, and it has stuck with me greatly in the last two weeks. I find that its a great one to listen to as I ride around Kiryu, and I thought it fitting to use one of its songs in this week’s post. I decided on “Get It Right the First Time” because I want just that. Be it a new introduction or simply riding along on my bicycle, I want to to be the best it can be as soon as it can be.

Because you never get a second chance at a first impression.
