We Didn't Start the Fire[edit]

I know that generally we don't want pages on songs with lyrics listed, but have a look at what I've done with Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire. It needs work (not all the links are right - perhaps an American might have more insight), but I think it's a great starting point for browsing.

I like the page, but I'm still worried whether it is ok from a copyright perspective. Andre Engels 09:43, 30 Aug 2003 (UTC)
It's a great article, but I believe it is a copyright violation, unfortunately. I have listed it as such. You could try getting permission for the article from the copyright owner. Daniel Quinlan 06:40, Nov 4, 2003 (UTC)
I think that there's probably a reasonable expectation of fair use when compiling an encyclopedia, especially when the majority of the song is a list of places and people. I like the compromise of leaving just the links until permission is secured from the copyright holder. You could also link to a site with the full lyrics... Voyager640 16:09, 20 Jan 2004 (UTC)
It's too good not to have here. I hope you'll pursue permission. Denni 08:29, 2004 Feb 17 (UTC)
