Album: The Nylon Curtain (1983). Charted: 29 56. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Saigon is a city in Vietnam where major combat operations took place during the Vietnam War. Joel wrote the song as a tribute to many of his friends who had served in the war. In the song, Joel imagines what it must have been like deep in the combat-addled terrain. This is a very unusual song for Joel, who stays away from political songs and never served in the military. He composed it after he was asked to write a song by a veterans' group. Since Joel had no firsthand experience with combat and no interest in espousing his views on the topic, he was reticent, but the group told him that.

Goodnight Saigon was written and recorded by American singer-pianist Billy Joel. It appeared on Joel’s 1982 album The Nylon Curtain and was released as a single the following year. Goodnight Saigon is told from the perspective of a young American reflecting on his service in Vietnam. Joel’s lyrics focus on the brotherhood and camaraderie of soldiers in Vietnam. It mentions aspects of combat, including the skill of the Viet Cong ( they were sharp, as sharp as knives ). It also refers to cultural experiences of soldiers in Vietnam, such as Playboy, Bob Hope and The Doors
