"Modern Woman" is a song performed by Billy Joel from his album The Bridge.

The song was the first single off the album and was also featured on the soundtrack to the film Ruthless People.

Though the song was quite successful, Joel has since said in interviews he does not care for it[citation needed], and subsequently it has been left off most of his compilation sets (the exceptions appear to be My Lives and The Ultimate Collection).
