I really love this interview, Billy Joel's reflections about Vienna touched my heart.
He nailed what I love about this city (and he also sings his beautiful "Vienna waits for you" song):
-> Billy Joel, Why Vienna?
-> Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" at the Upper Belvedere
-> History of Demel Pâtisserie Café, Kohlmarkt 14
-> Original trailer of Carol Reed's 1949 film, with Orson Welles, The Third Man
