We Didn't Start the Fire: No Billy, We did not.
Dust off those old Billy Joel CDs and yank Storm Front from the pile. Back in 1989, Billy ruled the airwaves with his spellbinding running commentary on post-war history. For one magic moment pop music once again attained the heights of the 1960s, Dylan and The Beatles come to mind. By taking events from each year and rhyming them! The build up to "JFK blown away, what else do I have to say?" chills me to this day. With the Berlin Wall in rubbleit was time to take stock. No one expressed it better than Billy. One of the unrivaled masterpieces of modern times.
