  • Covered Up: "Shameless" and "To Make You Feel My Love" are both more famous through their covers by Garth Brooks.
    • "To Make You Feel My Love" wasn't even a Joel original- it was written and first performed by Bob Dylan... meaning that Joel was on both ends of this trope with the same song.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: "Miami 2017 (Seen The Lights Go Out On Broadway)" is about the violent destruction of New York, despite being written before 9/11/2001. Joel sang the song at a number of 9/11 tribute concerts to defy the trope.
  • Memetic Mutation: "We Didn't Start The Fire" tends to be parodied quite a bit on the internet.
  • Narm Charm/Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The video for "You're Only Human (Second Wind)" is corny beyond all belief, but doesn't detract from the song's message.
  • Painful Rhyme: "Uptown Girl" features both the world/girl combination, as well as walkin/talkin.
  • Squick: The "instant pleasuredome" line in "You're My Home."
