Billy Joel!!! My favorite artist ever :)
Love Billy Joel myself. Got my 14 year old hooked too. 😄
Eeee! Billy Joel!
Interesting fact about this song. All of the lyrics in this song consists of events between 1949, the year Billy Joel was born, and 1989, the year the song was written.
That's correct. There's a big gap from 1963 upwards
I was right! We Didn't Start the Fire. I hate that song LMAO
We didn't start the fire, the only song that can have so many random consecutive lyrics
In my 11th grade contemporary studies class we had write another verse using current events from 2000 to the present.
Thats a good lesson and would've been fun. Do you remember what you wrote?
The only name that I've heard of is Liberace. I have a feeling it's not the Los Vegas Liberace.
No it is. That line was references to the mid-1950s

My high school history teacher had a poster with the lyrics on it!
Yep, that's the song.
We didn't start the fire. Billy Joel.
One of my favorite artists. Not one of my favorite songs.
A world history teacher I subbed for actually uses this song to teach modern history.
