Honestly? I am an eleven year old, and though I am interested in
pop music and all that, I am ADDICTED to this song. I sing it all the
time, to the point that two days after hearing this song for the first
time, I am spouting Joel lines randomly. It's a great song, and I'm
trying to make a 21st Century version.
I can remember when this song was released. My Psychology
teacher in High School put the lyrics up in the back of the room and
we listened to the song. He gave us extra credit if we researched
any topic from the song and showed how it changed our culture. It
was very interesting to learn about the different topics that Billy
Joel has seen in his life time.
I love reading that current 10, 12, 13 year old kids are listening to
this. To those of you saying this music is much better than what is
out there today you will see many of today songs are recycled
versions from the 50s, 60s, heck even up to the 80s.

In 1989, Billy Joel released a popular
song entitled We Didn't Start the Fire.
The song make a reference to historical
personalities and events from 1949 until
1989. The lyrics of the song proved to be
a good summary of the history of that era
