On “Through The Long Night” Billy Joel does one of the things he does best; he takes a dark and difficult subject and wraps a sweet and gentle song around it. The difficult subject is a partner dealing with depression and the sweetness is the melody that plays out over a quiet arrangement like a lullaby sung to help a troubled mind stop racing long enough to feel some peace. Like most of the songs on side two of Glass Houses, "Through The Long Night," did not get much recognition and is rarely played, but hardcore Billy Joel fans are fond of this sad and introspective ballad.  It’s my favorite Billy Joel tune of all time.

I have more in my WIP. As long as I can get guitar from other authors I will definitely do as many of them as I can :)

Thanks for this track!  Any Billy Joel song is a welcome addition to the customs database.
