” 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”. Named characters have stereotypically ethnic names (Anthony, Mama Leone, Sergeant O’Leary, Mr. Cacciatore) and their jobs are blue-collar. 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”. Near the end of the recording is the sound of a car starting up and driving away, and it was actually the bass player’s (Doug Stegmeyer) 1960s Corvette that was used. However, in the single mix, the car engine sound was removed.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 his 1977 album, The Stranger. A live performance of it can be heard on 2000 Years: The Millennium Concert.
