The Stranger is the fifth studio album by American singer Billy Joel, released in September 1977 by Columbia Records. It was the first of Joel's albums to be produced by Phil Ramone, with whom he would go on to work for all of his albums up until his 1986 album The Bridge. The Stranger was released a year following Joel's previous studio effort, Turnstiles, which had sold modestly and peaked low on the US charts, prompting Columbia to consider dropping Joel if his next release did not sell well.

They do provide The Stranger with the feel of a concept album, yet there is no true thematic connection between the pieces, and his lyrics are often vague or mean-spirited. His lyrical shortcomings are overshadowed by his musical strengths. Even if his melodies sound more Broadway than Beatles - the epic suite "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant" feels like a show-stopping closer - there's no denying that the melodies of each song on The Stranger are memorable, so much so that they strengthen the weaker portions of the album

The Stranger (album).

The Stranger is the title track from Billy Joel’s critical and commercial breakthrough album. Featuring a traditional rock outfit, the song begins with a slow, moody melody – reminiscent of a soundtrack of a noir film. Legend has it Billy Joel whistled the tune to producer Phil Ramone and expressed that he wanted an instrument to play that melody. Phil convinced him that the whistle was that of the stranger’s and that’s what ended up on record

The Stranger" is a song by rock artist Billy Joel from his 1977 album of the same name, The Stranger. The song was released as a single in Japan where it became very popular and peaked at on the Oricon chart, charting as well in Australia. It was the last single from the album in Japan, while the US and UK saw "She's Always a Woman", released the previous year, as the last single from the album. The single is featured on Joel's greatest hits album, Greatest Hits - Volume I & II.

Billy Joel originally didn’t want Just the Way You Are on The Stranger. He felt it was a gloppy ballad destined to be played at weddings. It didn’t sound like the rest of the album and he thought it would bring it to a crashing halt. Phil Ramone, however, thought it was essential. To convince Joel that he was right, he brought Linda Ronstadt and Phoebe Snow into the studio. They heard the song, and Linda Ronstadt goes, ‘Are you crazy? That’s a great song!' Joel said. And Phoebe says, ‘You gotta put that on the album!’ I was like, ‘Really?’ I hadn’t really had a woman’s input.
