Play it over and over again just to listen to the whistling - not that there's anything wrong with his singing or piano playing either.

Well we all have a face\nThat we hide away forever\nAnd we take them out and show ourselves\nWhen everyone has gone\nSome are satin some are steel\nSome are silk and some are leather\nThey're the faces of the stranger\nBut we love to try them on\n\nWell, we all fall in love\nBut we disregard the danger\nThough we share so many secrets\nThere are some we never tell\nWhy were you so surprised\nThat you never saw the stranger\nDid you ever let your lover see\nThe stranger in yourself?\n\nDon't be afraid to try again\nEveryone goes south\nEvery now and then\nYou've done it, why can't someone else?\nYou should know by now\nYou've been there yourself\n\nOnce I used to believe\nI was such a great romancer\nThen I came home to a woman\nThat I could not recognize\nWhen I pressed her for a reason\nShe refused to even answer\nIt was then I felt the stranger\nKick me right between the eyes\n\nWell, we all fall in love\nBut we disregard the danger\nThough we share so many secrets\nThere are some we never tell\nWhy were you so surprised\nThat you never saw the stranger\nDid you ever let your lover see\nThe stranger in yourself?\n\nDon't be afraid to try again\nEveryone goes south\nEvery now and then\nYou've done it why can't someone else?\nYou should know by now\nYou've been there yourself\n\nYou may never understand\nHow the stranger is inspired\nBut he isn't always evil\nAnd he isn't always wrong\nThough you drown in good intentions\nYou will never quench the fire\nYou'll give in to your desire\nWhen the stranger comes along.

Sitting next to my new puppy listening to this song. As soon as he started whistling she got up, looked around in a panic, and ran to the other room where she promptly pooped on the carpet.

Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim! This song is an amazing theme for the main character!!! It's melodically so diverse, they can play different parts at different times to get the right mood.

There is so much truth in the words! I guess if you live long enough it might make sense. Took me forty-five + years.!!!!
Jimmy JAM

John Payne
Such a ballad, and so amazingly true, and right on, everyone has a strange side, they try to HIDE, think about it! Amazing artist, poet and musicianship, like his, talent will be never FORGOTTEN!

Whilst I've never been a Billy Joel fan there were some songs here and there I liked. This is one of them. It brings me back to summer 1978. I had just graduate HS and was embarking on a summer trip to France as an exchange student. We were in a staging area of sorts in Brattleboro, Vermont. We were there like for 2 weeks boning up on our french. I took my cassette player and this was one of the tunes I played on it over and over again. When I hear this it takes me to hot steamy summer nights in un airconditioned dorms just waiting to find out wot France was like. I loved it and this song reminds me of that great experience.

Everybody loses their shit to Piano Man, but this and New York State of Mind are the superior Billy Joel songs, IMHO. This one starts off very hauntingly melodic and then picks up with a fierce beat and an almost hard-rock swagger about it, greatly written to boot. Good tune.

This song revisited, reminds me of the frightened youth living on an ever growing ego inflation. Peer pressure and being popular making it impossible to reveal yourself even to yourself. You are what they say you are. Never growing up. Just becoming inflated. Yet beneath the inflation lies the still frightened child. \nBilly Joel nailed that sentiment with this song.some whistle the same tune coming in as they do going out. Never knowing themselves or others . Just a whistle in a dark alley.
Pump Up The Jam
You may never understand\nHow the stranger is inspired\nBut he is not always evil\nAnd he is not always wrong\nThough you drown in good intentions\nYou may never quench the fire\nYou’ll give in to your desire\nWhen the stranger comes along.\n\nAbsolutely most killer section of this song, I love it. So true but also so well-written at the same time. And the instrumental work is great

1:01 why does the guitar sound remind me of a Genesis/Phil Collins Song. I just cant put my finger on it
Rachael Barfield
I remember listening to this song on a cassette tape when I was much younger. My mom would play this for me on the car stereo whenever we went somewhere. =)

Does this remind anyone else of The Godfather? The sad intro is Michael's father dying, then the music gets really intense when he starts taking over the family business. Michael's real face is the one that went to war and disagreed with the family, and the stranger's face is the one that ran the business and murdered people in cold blood. He has secrets, and ones he never tells like about his wife back in Italy. His stranger's face isn't always evil, he's just trying to do good for his wife (or his lover) and kids and the rest of his family, but he has to do evil to do it. Then the music gets sad and depressing again, because his wife leaves him for letting the stranger take over.

Hongbin led me here. I love this song.

This guy totally ripped off Snoop Dogg. No shame. As if anyone in rap ever used another's melodies. Sheesh.

One of the last of the great singer/songwriters this world will probably ever know. Unfortunately people just arent inclined to make masterpieces anymore. Lyrics, Melody, everything is just industrialized bullshit devoid of emotions, or meaning.

The beginning and end of this song are timbral perfection in capturing a wistful loneliness.
sallymaggiespotty
If you listen closely to the lyrics you will discover the profound truth of human nature contained in each line.We do indeed all have a stranger inside that we only show ourselves when everyone else has gone.

When the whistling stopped i thought this was a Steely Dan song.

もう40年近く前、東京の大学の近くのスナックで、この曲と、つのだ☆ひろのメリージェーンを良く聴いていました。そこで、これらの曲で意気投合したちょっと年上の保母さんと付き合いうことになりましたが、就職が決まり大阪に行く前に、最後にこの曲を聴いて別れたことを思い出します。

some of this reminds me of john lennon's double fantasy...don't you think?
