i don't remember who posted this video, but i wanted my husband to see it.
so of course i deleted it and then emptied the 'trash'. the only housework i did all day. :lol: :lol:
if someone would be kind enough to link me back to it, i would greatly appreciate it.
i found it. it didn't come from here after all.
TELL ME........................WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS?
We Didn't Start The Fire This is definitely worth watching.
What 1980's song do history teachers praise for its educational value? "We Didn't Start The Fire" This song was the answer to that question on Final Jeopardy -- only one person got it right.
I never could understand all the references on Billy Joel's song -- fortunately, with this VIDEO, given the pictures, now I can "see" what my "ears" couldn't.
Apparently, it's Joel's homage to the 40-years of historical headlines since his birth (1949). Wish I could have appreciated the depths of this song when it was released. Twenty years later, I'm in awe of what Joel was able to put into music and lyrics lasting only a few minutes.
Whether you are a Billy Joel fan or not, you probably remember his great song, 'We Didn't Start the Fire'. Here it is, set to pictures... Very, very cool. Had to share this one. It's a neat flashback through the past half century. I never did know the words. Turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 4 minutes!
Thanks to Billy Joel and some guy from the University of Chicago with a lot of spare time and Google.
Top left gives you full screen....top right lets you pause. Bottom left shows the year. The older you are, the more pictures you will recognize. If you click on the picture, it pauses and blows up.
is this the one?
Here is the explaination for each with the year. If you want to know. [http://www.school-for-champions.com/...fire_facts.htm]
if you ever visit the rock and roll hall of fame they have encased in glass the actual notepad that he wrote the song on....now that was really neat to see
OMG that was great I watched it twice and am going back again.
Thanks for this, BFW. It's great, and I saved it to show to my DH, too. Billy Joel is one of the musical geniuses of our time.
