I cannot count the number of times I listened to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” over the years. While it is not one of my favorite songs, the beat is catchy and very, very hard to dispel once it has set up residence in the mind. This can make it annoying after a while.
Thankfully, some famous artists created a fantastic parody, which you can view below:
This is one of the best farewell/tribute song videos – parody or not – that I have seen in a while. Although this author still tends to mix up the lyrics, a little more practice will cure the problem. Or it will at least render the mistakes less frequent. Either way, this is a version of “We Didn’t Start the Fire” that isn’t going away any time soon.
