Is This Depressing or What?

A comedian has updated "We Didn't Start the Fire."

So sad.  The original by Billy Joel had some good things in it.  This one, not so much.

I disagree. It's great! Billy Joel would be proud. And the kids are adorable.

The (limited) value of the original rested in its ability to move through time so efficiently, and to evoke each year in sequence. This version is an undifferentiated mass of 2008-2010.
