So I had just posted this song as a reply in another thread, and I thought I would share it with everyone. It is the video and Billy Joel song "We didn't start the fire". I would just like to point out how relevant this song is today with the current events going on in the world. Well, thing is, the world has been like this for many years. This song was written about 25 years ago, and was about events going all the way back to 1949.
I am sure you all have heard this song before, I just wanted to share it with those that may not have, and those that have to just point out how timeless this song really is Plus, it is kind of fun to read the lyrics and see if you can keep up

Thank you. Never even thought about the lyrics before. Posted on my YouTube channel as a comment on the not in any way suspicious Nu-Pro fire. "One significant absence from the line up was a representative from Nu-Pro....." "How much would it cost to remove all asbestos from the building, demolish and rebuild. How much would it cost to rebuild from a burnt out ruin?"

Thank YOU for that video! I admit that brought a tear to my eye seeing the pictures of every single one of those events! That was very impactful

Saw your thread and remembered I wrote a parody in the build up to 2012. Took me all day if I remember correctly.

Meg Whitman, student's pay, rising China, road delays.
Angry Druids, winter blizzards, real "Pinoccio's".

Shrinking forests, solar storms, crazy chemists, misinformers.
NASA, climate climbs, and pollution in the sky.

Crops are failing, e-zines, Willie's got a new Queen.
East is getting thrifty, Fukushima fifty.


We didn't start the fire,
It was always burning, since the world's been turning.
We didn't start the fire,
No we didn't light it but we tried to fight it.

Sarah Palin, flooded Oz, Cameron's a lying toff.
Armageddon, Christchurch, modified grain.

Empty shelves, twenty twelve, tsunami's, go rebels!
Greece, Spain Ireland fall. Sucking Satan's cock.

Sun aligns, UV beams, BRIC has got a winning team.
Bankers pockets, power plants, al Kaddafi, Pakistan.

Cargo, failing West, false Obama, Congress.
Breeding haste, Human Race, trouble finding any space.


Burma shakes, obesity, corrective rape, longevity.
Nano's, ignorance, or growing global conscieneness.

Aliens, pwning Tahn, Britains selling all it's arms.
Growing rates of homocide, elders by the wayside.

Survival plans, dark knights, no Muslim women's rights.
Winsconsin, El Nino, Iraq is a no go.

UN, Arkansas birds, African's are killing herds.
Owing debtors, auto's, virus from the Congo.


Supermoon, earthquakes, is Isreal a real state?
Jet stream, pipedreams, children hooked on morphine.

Sheen is having mania, Mubaraks epic failure.
Dissmissed, Nick Clegg, Bachman not right in the head.

French planes, Gaza threats, Papist pedophile sex.
Libyan's blown away, what else do I have to say.


Mind control, terrorists, America's economy.
Chaos, wood loss, was it HAARP? At a loss.

Survival plans, end of times, terror in the oil lines.
Midwives getting busier. Freedom in Tunisia?

Radiation, cyanide, Bridgend Facebook suicide.
Spending cuts, Tea Bag nuts, flu, smack, business shut.

UN on another tour. China's breaking fishing laws.
Food and oil prices soar, I cant take it anymore!!!!!!!
