Best Billy Joel song and possible best cover

I think this might be the best Billie Joel song. Haven't heard all the deep cuts of his body of work. But can't imagine one better than this. It's got a deep groovy rock riff throughout and yet it's got a melancholy that comes in with the horn section. Kind of hypnotizing.

And this rap song by the group Das Racist which features The Heatmakerz' "You Oughta Know" which samples Billie Joel's "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" might be the greatest cover. Turning Joel's rockin' Broadway musical meets Paul McCartney epic ballad into a dope upbeat hip hop jam with a calypso rap by Heems.
