Song: “We Didn’t Start The Fire” By Billy Joel

This song isn’t inspirational, but it has a point on issues facing today. It shows all kinds of negative events that have happened tragically in the past. One is the assassination of President Kennedy. When there was a Woodstock with hippies in 1969. It brings a lot of serious issues. But, on second thought the music video is interesting and entertaining, even if it is a some bit tormented. The quote is from it: “We didn’t start the fire, it was always burning since the world’s been turning”. I think it goes something like that. I believe that the world is the way it is. I think this song has a point. We create most problems for ourselves, and others, but the other problems are already there anyway. I think this means we don’t have to blame ourselves for serious and tragic problems out there. We have to understand to solve our own problems, and try to make the world a better place. The song is educational in a sense that these serious problems of today are already there. We hear the lyrics, and rhymes in the song of the past history events that went on in the pasts. Like the impeachment of President Richard Nixon. New problems are still being created. It has a serious moral to the story that we can’t change all of them. We have to worry about our own, and let the others try to solve theirs. In the future there will always be problems. I like the song, because it’s educational, and it brings to a point that we need to be happy for what we have, instead of worrying about other people’s problems.
