38 icons to Billy Joel's She's Always A Woman

*Yeah, yeah, you and I and 3/4 of the lyrics transcribers out there heard "love." But Billy Joel's official site says "live." So... here's the alternate. Can't we all just get along?

I love the images you matched to the lyrics (one of my favorite songs, BTW). Bravo!

One of mine too. I think it was mostly easy(ish) to do because so many of the lines can be broken down to make good icon captions. And also because Joss has so many interesting women!

wow! so cool!

*giggling* how long did this take you?

Bout 3 days. I did the first 7 or so on Thursday, not-at-work, then up through the chorus Friday night, and the rest on Saturday. This was just a really easy song to find appropriate pictures for!

*smooch*

Bought chocolate for you, btw....

I'm pretty sure it is love. I just looked on my CD, and it says "love" there. Probably just a typo.

Great icons!

I'd think it was just a typo, except I went looking for lyric transcriptions to double check, and it was about 50/50, live/love. Unless they all copied the official site, of course. *shrugs* :-)

Thanks!

Heh, I don't like that song at all but it works so well...you did a beautiful job! I'd like to take/share the Tara-"she only reveals what she wants you to see" icon.

Thanks!

so, i wouldn't say i'm staunchly anti-billy joel, but his lyrics/music aren't something i've ever given much thought to (besides "we didn't start the fire" which is actually sorta cool, and "the piano man," that's him too, right? i'm a little slow) BUT i do have to say that, uhm, well, WOW to the icons and the like number of appropos images you've confiscated on your way to the WOW-iness :)

WOW ... your minion humbly offers you pomegranate and sweet wine from the ripest red grapes. :)

mpoetess

Piano man is BJ yes. I like... about 3/4 of his stuff up to the album that includes we didn't start the fire. (Storm Front). Then... bleh.

Mmm. You did remove the seeds from the pomegranate, right? ;-)

(Oddly, I actually do have a pomegranate in my fridge. They're a pisser to eat; removing the seeds is a pain.)

Thanks!

Those are gorgeous! :) Alas, I'm always sad to see no Oz. Heh. My favourite, I think, is 'she's suddenly cruel'. Whee.

Thanks!

I thought about trying to get a Willow/Oz icon in there, but couldn't really think of a line-specific place to put it, except for the "Always a woman" tagline, which I wanted to save for W/T.

These are really, really well-done. I love how perfectly you matched the lyrics to the pictures...and how you used a wide array of characters to do so. Excellent job!

These are unbelievable. I just wanted to say wow, and compliment you on your work, because it's just so beautiful...I love how you managed to get almost all the women from BtVS and AtS in there, and how well the lyrics match the images.

I hate A/C, but I love the 'Garden of Eden' icon. It's one of my favourites, along with the Lilah one, the first Faith icon, the Miracle Snow icon and the one with Angel and Buffy in 'Forever'.

Re: Wow

Thank you!

I'm not a big fan of A/C either, but I was trying to go with "Start and end the verses with the same woman" and I couldn't think of a Cordy moment that better suited temptation going before a fall, than the scene from Waiting In the Wings.

And hee! Miracle Snow! It saves vampires *and* keeps your dishes sparkling clean and streak-free!
