Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!

Billy Joel’s song “We Didn’t Start the Fire” covers over a hundred events from 1949-1989. In this video, each event is given its own slide along with some brief background, so you can read the lyrics and pause and research key events on your own!

We Didn’t Start The Fire – Billy Joel

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    This is one of Billy Joel’s best ones and I appreciated that the creator of the video put subtitles under each lyric to briefly explain, in one sentence, what that lyric meant or was about. I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s so most all of these events were not unknown to me, but it got me to thinking – we do need a sequel for younger generations. Sadly.

      This is such an amazing song – 40 years of key historical events to study, remember and pass down –
