“We Didn’t Start The Fire” by BILLY JOEL FEATURING JAY-Z

This COVID-19 has sure changed everything. Time moves differently now, which is just the nice way of saying that time has become irrelevant. 

During the quarantine, I discovered this on the YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRt-fquxnij9wDnFJnpPS2Q.

When Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys first heard ‘Be My Baby’ his life was forever changed. Here’s his exact words.

Joel - John
