Billy Joel "This Is The Time"

What synths were used on this 1986 hit?

There seems to be a nice metallic sound running through the verses.

i'm gonna take a wild-a*s guess and say it was DX-7.

And I think that metallic sound running through the verses was my fillings.

Just ribbing--I grew up on Lawn Guyland, so I've sung along to my share of Billy Joel in my day.
