A live version was included with the DVD that was part of the 30th anniversary re-release of The Stranger. The song is in C major and is one of three studio instrumentals that Joel has released. Joel has played the song in concert frequently over the years, stating that he uses it as "a kind of instrumental palate cleanser." He further stated that it requires his "full attention as the notes spill out." (en)
