If this hadn't been done already, I was going to make it one of my summer projects. Yes, it's Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire" with every historical term hyperlinked. here's another version, with a bit more chronological structure. There were a few terms that I had to click through myself: it really would be an interesting classroom tool.
I didn't like the song when I first heard it, to be honest, because of the slightly detached, whiny chorus. But the litany has grown on me considerably since then.
