Billy Joel Song Quiz – With One Word Changed!

There was a Billy Joel mystery round in Wednesday night’s Sporcle Live trivia game. And I’m feeling…inspired! Here is my own Billy Joel-inspired song quiz! Each of the correct answers will have just one WORD of a Billy Joel song changed! Note, in some cases (but not all), the changed word MIGHT rhyme with the word in the original song. Answers are in the comments! One of my blog readers said they like it when I put the answers in the comments, so I will be doing that from now on! But only with trivia quizzes that I create – not necessarily for recaps of pub trivia games that I play. Though I will consider doing this in the future!
