we ain't too pretty, we ain't too proud

well, the countdown is on. my birthday is in 10 days, and i've decided to mark the slow crawl to 30 (yes, i realize that 40 is the new 30, and i am only turning 28, but still, humour me here) i've decided that i'm going to post songs that, in the past, i may have been embarassed to admit liking, but as i get older, i've stopped caring. to be clear, this isn't even a hipster ironic enjoyment. i just really like the songs. to kick things off, i thought it would be appropriate to throw some billy joel your way. this song in particular a) makes me want to sing, b) makes me remember being a kid and c) makes me feel badass, mostly because if the title is true, and i'm still kicking...well, i must be badass.
and just to make things interesting, here's a whole bunch of covers to boot:

billy joel - only the good die young
billy joel & elton john - only the good die young
me first and the gimme gimmes - only the good die young
howie day - only the good die young
rockapella - only the good die young
