Could Google Wave do this?

NewsFeed once had a middle school history teacher who introduced the post-war unit by playing Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” and going through it line by line. If he is still doing that, his students now have the advantage!

The fun-loving kids over at URLesque have made a fun demonstration of the power of Google’s new instant search results by googling every line in “We Didn’t Start the Fire” and setting it to music. It’s fun and educational! (We swore that it went “Bob Dole, Budapest.”) Our only regret is that the mashup only goes to 1:40 of the song, sparing us the Google results for “I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!”
