VIDEO: We didn't start the fire, Italia 90 style

A trip down The Memories lane.

THE NEWS CAME today that Billy Joel is playing a gig in the O2 on November 1st this year.

This’ll be his first gig on our shores in seven years and his first ever time playing here indoors (he might miss the auld rain).

It got us thinking. Remember this Irish version of We Didn’t Start The Fire? It was a World Cup song by The Memories.
