The Avengers didn’t start the fire
April 23rd, 2019 under Billy Joel, Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Don Cheadle, Jimmy Fallon, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johannsson. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like me, then you have only seen a handful of the Marvel Comics movies. Therefore, you want to see Avengers: Endgame, but you know you will have no idea what is going on because you missed so much of the story leading up to it.

Well, Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show has people like us covered. He got several of the superheroes to sing a cover of Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire to tell the backstory we missed. Now I feel comfortable going to see the film. Once, I can actually find a screening of it that is not sold old.

BTW Watch this video all the way until the end for a very sweet ending that will bring a tear to your eye.


Looks like The Goldbergs are going to do We Didn’t Start the Fire!
November 1st, 2017 under Billy Joel, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

The Goldberg’s creator Adam F Goldberg Tweeted the above photo and said, “Guess what I’m doing an episode about???” If you look at the first few postcards on the board, you can see they correspond with the first line of lyrics (Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnnie Ray) to Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start Fire. Therefore, we can pretty much assume that he is doing an episode about the song that covers 40 (1949-1989) years of history.

Now that we know that this is coming up, I cannot wait to see what they do with it. It is probably going to be brilliant, sweet and hysterical like all of the other episodes from the hit sitcom. On that note, while CBS and NBC are airing repeats against the World Series game (go Dodgers), ABC is not. Thus, you don’t want to miss tonight’s The Goldbergs at 8p.


Remember Patty Smyth?
August 24th, 2017 under Billy Joel, Remember?. [ Comments: none ]

The other night when Billy Joel was playing Madison Square Garden, he was joined on stage by Patty Smyth. Then the Piano Man starting playing her huge hit Goodbye to You and The Warrior started singing her tune. It is as though it is the early ’80s all over again because not only does the 60-year-old singer sound just like she did then but she also looks exactly the same. Time for her to go back on the road with Scandal because we have been missing her voice. Don’t you just love it?

On the love note, did you know that she has been married to tennis legend John McEnroe for 20 years? How did I not know that until today?


A literal music video to Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire!
June 22nd, 2017 under Billy Joel. [ Comments: none ]

We have all heard Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire, but we cannot identify all the references that is made in the song. A fan, who goes by AD, helped us out by editing the historic names with actual footage. Why? He said, “Been meaning to get to this for my entire life.”

Who cares how long it took for him to make it because it is as swell, as groovy and as totally like awesome as the 1989 tune that gave us a history of the 20th century.


Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon are beasts of burden!
January 7th, 2016 under Billy Joel, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: none ]

Billy Joel was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon and him sang a duet together. Instead of singing one of BJ’s tune, they sang The Rolling Stones’ Beast of Burden. They did such a great job with it, Mick Jagger would approve.
If that is not enough for you, the two of them along with JK Simmons harmonized to my second favorite song from The Piano Man, For the Longest Time. Who knew JK could sing like that? He should go on tour with Joel!
