"The Longest Time" by Billy Joel.

OK, back to the 80's: This '84 Billy Joel "quasi a cappella" doo-wop classic from "An Innocent Man" was his 4th single from that album. It topped the Adult Contemporary charts and peaked at #14 on Billboard's Hot 100. The only instruments are electric bass and hi-hat plus hand claps and finger snaps. The lead and 14 backup vocal tracks were all laid down by Joel himself (!). Outstanding video!

Yesterday's answer: "Rapture" by Blondie. She was once dubbed "the female Mick Jagger".
