"Honesty" is a song by Billy Joel released in 1979 as the third single from his album 52nd Street. It reached #24 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, becoming the album's third consecutive top 40 hit.

"Honesty" has been particularly popular in Japan for decades and covered by East Asian musicians like Chikuzen Sato, Hajime Mizoguchi, Nicotine, and K. The song was included on Japanese edition of Joel's 1985 compilation Greatest Hits Volume 2 as one of the bonus tracks, and has been featured on the country's multiple TV commercials to date. In May 2009, Joel's version was certified gold by Recording Industry Association of Japan for ringtone download sales of over 100,000 units. There is a potential resemblance of part of this song to a song by Paul Simon called "Tenderness", taken from the 1973 album "There Goes Rhymin' Simon".

A well-known ballad that received much airplay, the song nevertheless has the odd distinction of not being included on any of Joel's US released compilation packages although it does appear on the Dutch edition as well as the aforementioned Japanese edition of Greatest Hits Volume 2, instead of Don't Ask Me Why.

In 1981, Mexican singer David Haro recorded under the title "Sinceridad" from the album Calido.
