Thinking of all the good memories of college. Listening to Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel for dramatic effect.
That time our veterans and friends joined Billy Joel onstage during 'Goodnight Saigon.'
On Friday evening, Billy Joel played for a sold-out concert in Washington, D.C. and requested veterans accompany him on stage during "Goodnight Saigon." We found some lovely Vietnam Veterans & active-duty service members to sing with him. Once on stage, they were met with cheers and applause. Billy later shook their hands, making it a wonderful recognition! Watch videos here:
Reminds me of the lyric in Billy Joel's Goodnight Saigon: "we would all go down together."
BBC4 showing Billy Joel concert in Russia 1987. Terrific. Real talent. Goodnight Saigon still among the best anti war songs. Class act.
So going to learn Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel today =)
Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel is one of those songs that will never get old.
I sang the intense "Goodnight Saigon" last night, and was followed by four party dudes doing "Uptown Girl" - nicely illustrating the tremendous range of Billy Joel.
Ok, a few things about the Billy Joel concert...First of all, I feel so blessed that I could share my idol's concert w my kids! The man is amazing... I guess he's gonna play MSG once a month until he doesn't sell it out, which means he'll be there forever!!! When he got to the chorus of "Goodnight Saigon" and several soldiers & NYPD & FDNY guys came out arm in arm and sang the chorus "we said we'd all go down together"... the Garden stood as one, it was incredibly powerful.he kept saying all night what a great job he had.I agree. Thanks Billy!
,= Billy Joel. Stay out of the middle in NYC area or yr getting some greatest hits and it's goodnight saigon!
Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel... gets me every time

Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon" will forever be my sick, sad lullaby.
Glutton for punishment. This song just makes me cry. ♫ Goodnight Saigon – Billy Joel
When the iPod is on shuffle & I hear chopper blades I'm not sure if I'm about to hear Metallica's "One" or Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon".
Watch on the clip starting at 1:41 for Garth's Brook's Tribute to Billy Joel and his song honoring Vietnam Veterans called- Goodnight Saigon. Very powerful performance and surprise. Check it out an...
Opinions needed, especially from military folks, active duty or retired. Just watched the Kennedy Center Awards show, very cool. At the end during the Billy Joel version of "Goodnight Saigon" (Impressive job by Garth Brooks I might add), a bunch of veterans joined him on stage and sang. When the song was over the vets all saluted their Comander in Chief who was watching. Now I realize Obama wasn't in the Military but I don't think I have ever seen such a lame salute. Do military personnel see a salute like that as disrespectful? really interested in hearing some feedback on this.
Who saw the Kennedy Center Honors? What a fantastic show. THREE of the honorees are artists that I have worked with. It was so good to see them getting this award: Carlos Santana (Hard Rock Live), Herbie Hancock (Gershwin's World, Possibilities), and Billy Joel (River of Dreams, 2000 Years Live NY Eve Album) My favorite moment was Garth Brooks singing "Goodnight Saigon" with all of the Vietnam Vets on stage (wow!). Another was Snoop Dogg making people dance in their seats - great performance. Another highlight was Rufus Wainwright. Besides the honorees, I have been fortunate to work with others that were on the show: Chick Corea, Terence Blanchard, Vinnie Colaiuta, Snoop Dogg, Tony Bennett, and Garth Brooks. Congratulations to all of the honorees!
Did anybody watch the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors show last night? Garth Brookes sang, "Goodnight Saigon’" by Billy Joel. When he sang about how they 'all go down together', that song now has a whole new meaning for today's military servicemen.
MMM: Hopefully you caught The Kennedy Center Honors concert yesterday on CBS. The event, which took place earlier in the month, was broadcast on tape-delay (as is the usual method), with Billy Joel, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, Shirley McLaine and Martina Arroyo getting the recognition. The show featured Harry Belafonte starting the Santana section, which included Steve Winwood, Sheila E. and more. Joel's segment closed the show with Vietnam Veterans joining Garth Brooks during "Goodnight Saigon." Joel told Zap2it.com: "I was surprised. I honestly, really thought there were a lot of people who were deserving before I was going to get this. . . jazz musicians, classical musicians, just other people. I've had so much fun, it's like I'm getting an award for doing something I love. Which is an award in itself. . . It's a really good lineup...He went on to say: "I'm still kind of 'Wow!' because I admire all those people. I'm happy I don't have to speak at this; I'd just be, 'Homina-homina-homina,' like Jac ...
Just watched the Kennedy Center honoring Shirley Mclaine and Billy Joel. It was ok until they came to honor Billy Joel in which it became an EXCELLENT tribute. Loved when the veterans came out and helped Garth Brooks with "Goodnight Saigon". I had to find my box of Kleenex!
Kudos to Rufus Wainwright for NY State of Mind-Billy Joel tribute at Kennedy Center Honors. Viet Nam vets on stage=nice touch for Goodnight Saigon
Just watched the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Billy Joel. Garth Brooks killed "Allentown" & "Goodnight Saigon", and Rufus Wainwright MURDERED "New York State Of Mind". Left it all on the stage.
Just cried my eyes out watching the Kennedy Center Honors. They honored many people but at the end it was the one and only Billy Joel. Absolutely inspired version of Goodnight Saigon by Garth Brooks, with Vietnam vets and everything. Rufus Wainwright did New York State of Mind and Piano Man. What a tribute, I cried for half an hour. Thank God for Billy Joel.
Just caught the last part of The Kennedy Center program. Tribute to Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon reminded me how much I liked The Nylon Curtain album. That one and Songs In The Attic are 2 of my favorites.
Last year it was Heart singing Led Zeppelin, this year it was veterans brought out to sing Goodnight Saigon. The Kennedy Center Honors always seems to get it right. If you're a Billy Joel fan, Google it.
Did anyone not choke up when the vets came out during "Goodnight Saigon" on the Billy Joel segment of the Kennedy Center Honors?
Watching Kennedy Center Honors, and Garth Brooks just did a wonderful tribute to Billy Joel singing Goodnight Saigon. So good! Did anyone else catch Snoop Dog in the audience gettin down to "Piano Man"?
Tears might have been streaming down my face as Garth Brooks and US veterans sang "Goodnight Saigon" to honor Billy Joel at this years Kennedy Center Awards. An outstanding musician and artist, cheers to the one and only Piano Man.
...i just watched Garth Brooks sing a tribute of Goodnight Saigon...for Billy Joel and it was amazing.i must say that i am super proud of my son AUSTIN BROWN and all the men that go fight for my country.THANKS BOYS !
Tonight's Kennedy Center Honors was uniformally excellent but for the me the highlight was Garth Brooks singing Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon" with a large contingent of veterans joining him on the "we said we'ld all go down together" chorus.
I am blown away by “Goodnight Saigon” performed by Garth Brooks in the honor of Billy Joel. What a great touch by having the Military Vets to come out and sing along
That rendition of Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon" on the Kennedy Center Honors with Garth Brooks and a chorus of veterans was a performance for the ages.
Bringing Vietnam vets out on stage to salute Billy Joel during Goodnight Saigon was pretty cool.
Classy. Very classy. Kennedy Center Honors for Billy Joel and Garth Brooks play "Goodnight Saigon" and veterans join to sign the chorus as he usually does. Including a standing ovation from the black tied crowd for the veterans. Awesome!
The tribute to Billy Joel and what they did with Garth Brooks and the Vets singing "Goodnight Saigon" was AMAZINGLY POWERFUL. I think I saw John Kerry shed a tear. I know I did.
Kennedy Center Honors Billy Joel with an amazing version of Goodnight Saigon with Veterans singing. Should have made it the last song and not shown any politicians but it was still inspiring and sobering.
Watching the Vietnam Vets singing Goodnight Saigon with Garth Brooks for Billy Joel brought tears to my eyes.
On tonights Kennedy Center Honors During the tribute to Billy Joel, towards the show's end – Garth Brooks sings “Goodnight Saigon” A great friend of mine and an amazing American hero was part of a large group of Vietnam Vets joining him on stage.

I'm so far removed from the events of Vietnam & that era I have a hard time telling if Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon" is overwrought or not
I don't know why I still listen to Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel when I miss my brother. I'm dumb and sad.
Documents from the Vietnam Era to the Billy Joel song Goodnight Saigon. This video is dedicated to the American Soldiers who gave the ulitmate sacrifice in the Vietnam War. I
The Vietnam War was a tragedy. Flame me if u must, but Billy Joel's "Goodnight Saigon" is good eulogy 2 that misadvntr.

Yet another boring Friday night in Harford County. The bug zapper and a six pack just doesn't cut it anymore. Every so often I like to take the speakers out on the deck and crank them up to Billy Joel and Goodnight Saigon. As many times as I've done this you would think the neighbors would catch on. No not this neighborhood. There are still some that rush out between the sound of the choppers coming in and before the music starts and start digging Fox Holes. I'm told that a few folks keep entrenching tools close by on Friday nights just in case. I love the sound of shovels hitting rock.
My son is probably on patrol right now. Where he is, there have been firefights. I am so very proud of him, but scared for me at the same time. Been listening too Goodnight Saigon, by Billy Joel a lot. That is his song now.
is celebrating Billy Joel's birthday today by taking Captain Jack to Cold Spring Harbor to hear The Piano Man perform a Streetlife Serenade for the Uptown Girl on the River of Dreams. Later The Stranger from 52nd Street pushes through Turnstiles into Glass Houses to visit Anthony, An Innocent Man who works in a Grocery Store. Finally The Storm Front hits The Bridge as The Nylon Curtain is pulled back to reveal Christie Brinkley...She's Got a Way about her and is Always a Woman to me...Goodnight Saigon!
