    1. 1949 və 1989-cu il arasında olan böyük hadisələri və məşhur insanların adlarını xronolojik olaraq sayan billy joel mahnısı.
    Deyilənə görə, billy joel 40 yaşında olarkən, 20-li yaşlarda olan bir gənclə söhbət edirmiş. Gəncin 21 yaşında olmaq üçün dəhşətli bir zamandır sözünə, billy joel də qatılaraq "mən də 21 yaşında olanda dünyanın dəhşətli bir yer olduğunu düşünürdüm" deyə cavab verir. Gənc də buna qarşılıq olaraq, billy'nin 50-ci illərdə uşaq olduğunu və o illərdə heç bir maraqlı hadisə baş vermədiyini deyir. "Bir dəqiqə, Koreya savaşı və ya süveyş kanalı böhranını eşitməmisiz" deyə cavab verən billy joel, daha sonra bununla əlaqədar bir mahnı yazmağa qərar verir və 1989-cu ilə kimi, hər il baş verən önəmli hadisələrin adını mahnı sözü edir.
    Bu mahnı həmin il grammy'ə namizəd göstərilir, ancaq mükafatı ala bilmir.
