[VIDEO] Billy Joel Forgets Lyrics To "We Didn't Start The Fire"
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.14.2014

Rolling Stone reports that Billy Joel had trouble performing "We Didn't Start The Fire" during his concert at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on March 9. As he sang the lyrics "Rosenberg's H-Bomb, Sugar Ray, Panmunjom," he lost his train of thought and the song stopped. He said: "Wait a minute. That ain't right. All you gotta do is fuck up one word in that song and it's a train wreck."

Joel has kept the song out of his set during many nights on his 2014 tour. After the error, he thought about instead performing "Uptown Girl" but the crowd wasn't happy.

He said: "It's the same thing verse after verse. Just the words change. It's one of the worst melodies I ever wrote."

He then finished the song without any problems, just a missed verse. When it was over he added: "That'll be all over YouTube tomorrow. It's okay. It was an authentic rock and roll fuck up. We're not on tape. You don't see much of that anymore. Ok, let's hope we get through this one."

Joel's tour will be at Madison Square Garden every month in the future along with select US arenas and stadiums in the next few months.
