“An Innocent Man” is a 1983 song performed by Billy Joel and the third single from his album An Innocent Man.
The song, a tribute to Ben E. King and The Drifters, reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the third consecutive top 10 single from the album.[1] It also spent one week at #1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart.[2]
Joel was quoted in a 1997 interview describing a high note he sang during the song: “…I had a suspicion that was going to be the last time I was going to be able to hit those notes, so why not go out in a blaze of glory? That was the end of Billy’s high note. “[2]
