We've all done it; fallen asleep with the television buzzing away in the background. On his understated 1980 gem "Sleeping with the Television On," Billy Joel brings this modern phenomenon into the frame as a metaphor for romantic rejection. The protagonist cautions his flaky lover that she'll be left alone in singledom with the television unless she starts paying attention to the budding relationship. "All night long, all night long / You'll shoot 'em down because you're waiting for somebody good to come on / (All night long, all night long) / But you'll be sleeping with the television on, hey," he sings, gleefully delivering his message to an upbeat power-pop soundtrack. "Sleeping with the Television On" was featured on Billy Joel's seventh studio album, Glass Houses, which was one of the best-selling albums of the '80s, winning him the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance in 1981, and spawning a menagerie of hits, including pop chart-topper "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me".
