DEF: Billy Joel “Uptown Girl”

New York City-born musician Billy Joel‘s song “Uptown Girl” was the second single off his An Innocent Man album, following the number one hit “Tell Her About It.” “Uptown Girl” became the second of three consecutive Top 10 hits from that album, and the video for “Uptown Girl” is remembered for starring supermodel Christie Brinkley, who would marry Joel soon thereafter.

On this date in 1983, “Uptown Girl” hit its peak position of number 3, where it would spend five weeks. Today, “Uptown Girl” is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
