The Stranger, Billy Joel - Just The Good Stuff The Stranger by Billy Joel ranked # 67 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.

The Stranger is the fifth studio album by Billy Joel, released in 1977. While his four previous albums were moderately successful, this was his breakthrough album, peaking at #2 on the U.S. album charts. It remains Joel's best-selling non-compilation album to date. Much of the album's success is attributed to Joel's collaboration with producer Phil Ramone, whose innovative production methods complimented Joel's songs. This fruitful collaboration would continue for a decade.

Singles released from the album include "Just The Way You Are," the acoustic ballad "She's Always A Woman," the mildly controversial "Only The Good Die Young," and "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)," which later became the theme song to Movin' Out, an acclaimed hit Broadway musical based on Billy Joel's songs.

This album overtook Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water album to become the best-selling album on the Columbia Records imprint at the time. Generally regarded as Joel's finest work, in 2003, the album was ranked number 67 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
