Billy Joel ~ Uptown Girl (1983)

The real star of the video (in her brief appearance) is Billy Joel’s wife at the time, Christie Brinkley – the car, the outfit, and – oh yeah, those legs.

I always found this tune reminiscent of The Four Seasons (posted elsewhere), and the video shown here is among my favorites.

At that time Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley (shown above) were married so (keeping it in the family) it is Christie who pulls into the garage as the mysterious lady with the “classy chassis”, the wide hat and the legs that seemingly stretch forever.
