A coffeehouse may not be the optimal place to make music purchases, but if that 2:30 feeling hits and you’re in need of some java, Starbucks might be the smart move to make. The coffeehouse chain is now offering a greatest hits compilation called Billy Joel: Opus Collection.

Joel is the latest to receive the fresh-brewed honor from the Starbucks Entertainment Opus Collection series, with artists like Paul Simon, Bonnie Raitt and John Lennon having compilations released by the king of caffeine distributors previously.

Sixteen tracks are included on Joel’s Opus Collection. But as UltimateClassicRock.com reports, it won’t include his work from 1971’s Cold Spring Harbor, 1974’s Streetlife Serenade, 1982’s The Nylon Curtain, and 1986’s The Bridge. That means no “Allentown” for you.

If you’re not much of a coffee drinker, but still a die-hard Joel fanatic, you can buy Billy Joel: Opus Collection online as well.

Billy Joel: Opus Collection tracklist:

  1. My Life
  2. Travelin’ Prayer
  3. Piano Man
  4. She’s Always a Woman
  5. Vienna
  6. Summer, Highland Falls
  7. An Innocent Man
  8. And So It Goes
  9. Just the Way You Are

  11. You May Be Right
  12. The Downeaster ‘Alexa
  13. New York State of Mind
  14. Honesty
  15. Scenes from an Italian Restaurant
