"Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" is a song written and recorded by Billy Joel. The track details the singer's disgust with the upwardly-mobile bourgeois aspirations of working and lower-middle class New Yorkers who take pride at working long hours in order to afford the outward signs of having "made it". Joel considers their rejection of their working-class roots (trading a Chevy for a Cadillac and buying a house in Hackensack, New Jersey) to be ultimately futile; in the end, the rewards are a "heart attack" or "a broken back". The car heard being driven in the song was the bass player's (Doug Stegmeyer) 1960s Corvette. According to Joel, Anthony isn't a real person, but rather "every Irish, Polish, and Italian kid trying to make a living in the U.S.". The song originally appeared on Joel's 1977 album, The Stranger. Rhythmic and soothing, nice instrumental portions and clean vocals.
