Sometimes you have to seize the moment.

According to Gawker, Vanderbilt freshman Michael Pollack had an idea during a Jan. 30 question and answer session with Billy Joel.

Pollack, a piano player himself, asked Joel if he could accompany him in a performance of "New York State of Mind" Pollack's favorite song.

As the video shows, Joel thinks for a minute, then replies with a simple, "Okay."

And what can we take from this? Never be afraid to follow the old saying "carpe diem."

Check out an interview with Pollack on his experience with Joel below.

Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes, Mon-Fri., 9a-12p on 92.3 KTAR
