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 in working long hours to afford the outward signs of having "made it. 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. Movin' Out originally appeared on Joel's 1977 album The Stranger. A live performance of it can be heard on 2000 Years: The Millennium Concert. In Canada, "Movin' Out" had its greatest chart success, peaking at #11.
