Listen: All of Billy Joel’s “Greatest Hits” played at the same time

Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley in the 80s

What kind of lunatic sits down and layers all the tracks on Billy Joel's Greatest Hits Volume I & II over each other for a YouTube video? The blogger behind Wonder Tonic, apparently, who seems to possess infinite amounts of time and ideas for internet shenanigans.

How many of the songs can you make out based exclusively on the music before the four-minute mark? I had two. (After 3:58 or so, you'll be able to make out "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" and "Piano Man" perfectly, with "New York State Of Mind" and "Captain Jack" leading the pack as this heinous recording ends.)

Billy Joel is indeed pretty cheesy, but could any major musical artist survive this kind of treatment? I think not.

Some of the comments on the Tumblr post are amusing, too:

HAHAHAH OH MY GAWD THIS IS SO TERRIFYING I CAN’T EVEN SWITCH TABS TO TURN IT OFF AND I AM CRYING

MY EARS ARE FULL OF FUCK

THIS IS SO NOT COOL, DAILYWHAT
