Who’s That Lady?

So what if George W. once considered dropping Cheney as a running mate? The real news is that Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl was NOT Christie Brinkley.

The song was originally about Elle MacPherson.

So says a new book, The Girl in the Song, which details the back stories of many classic rock lyrics. News stories have sent the book up Amazon sales rankings (now at #386, it’s unlikely to pose any threat to Bush’s Decision Points, however; it’s which is at #1).
