I rewrote Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" with Sabres history in mind. I want it to be nostalgic, fun, educational and even a little challenging. It's an homage both to the team and to Joel. There's no angle or agenda in it. There's a little editorial statement at the end, but I believe it speaks for the vast majority of fans — we're frustrated. If anything detracts from the goal of the song, I want to hear that opinion.

If you can write a better word, line or stanza and stay in chronological order and follow the rhyming scheme, I want to see it. If some historical reference is wrong or inexcusably missing, let me know. Right off the top, the last two lines of the chorus could be much better, and "Dave Hannan" doesn't seem to work at all. (I'd recommend reading the lyrics while listening to the song.)

I call this Word Soduko. I found it nigh on impossible to even get this far, so pardon the cheap rhymes like nose and nachos! Can you do better?!

Thanks to Ghost for a couple of very good lines and much help and X. and SwampD for suggested lyrics/topics. One of our esteemed posters who probably doesn't want to be identified yet may take a stab at producing it. We probably need more musical expertise, like, oh, someone who can sing.

I've taken it this far. I want you all to perfect it and somehow take it all the way to YouTube.

Elvis, Colisee, Frankie Sauve, Chevrier
Barrasso sits, Perreault quits, Sabres fire Bowman

We've always loved the Sabres
When our hearts are churning
When our dreams are burning
We've always loved the Sabres
No we didn't hide it
We could never fight it

Playoff drought, defector, Pizzutelli, jugular
May Day, We Want Ray, La La La LaFontaine

No more beer cups on the floor, FNC's a freakin' bore,
status quo, core, yelling fore, I can't take it anymore

We've always loved the Sabres
When our hearts are churning
When our dreams are burning
We've always loved the Sabres
But when we are gone
They'll still skate on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on

We've always loved the Sabres

When our dreams are burning
We've always loved the Sabres
No we didn't hide it
We could never fight it

We've always loved the Sabres

The only thing I can think of is adding some reference to the logo changes... Maybe it could be worked into the different choruses to keep it chronological without changing your existing verses?  Something like:

We've always loved the Sabres
Change to black and red
And angry goat head
We've always loved the Sabres
No we didn't hide it
We could never fight it

We've always loved the Sabres
Back to blue and gold
Trump's hairpiece we're sold
We've always loved the Sabres
Though we didn't like it
We still chose to buy it

Then again, might not fit in order given where they fall in the song... just an idea.

The Drury goal was all-time -- it probably belongs in the franchise's top-20 moments and, so, in the song. And if you're including that one, maybe Max's slide? Because that was pretty good, too.

I also like Dork's notion on fiddling with the choruses to reference logo changes.

EDIT: Wait. I'm lost. Shoot. Drury 7.7 was, what? Not "Who else"? Was that when he scored in the OT against Ott'wa?

Rangers, I think... I was thinking Pommer's SH goal against Ottawa was one of my favorites, though.  :)

While I hate the Billy Joel song, it works with what you have done.  Having it tweaked and done as a professional video would make a cool arena presentation.  They could do a great video montage out of that.

I think it would be great pregame video too. But some of the references, as mild as they are, would make it a non-starter as far as the team is concerned. There's probably a copyright issue as well.

Therin lies the tweaking that I was referring to.  It's a great idea to do with one of Joel's worst songs.  What can you do with Piano Man, New York State of Mind, or Scenes From an Italian Restaurant.  Now you'd have something (but We Didn't Start the Fire lends itself so well to this idea).

Sabres fans had had it already by the summer of 75? :) Don't even get me started on another song, but the Brenda and Eddie device would work well. A couple going through life as Sabres fans.

Never thought of "Fire" as his worst song.

It's getting exciting. Initial production of the song is going well. It's time to button up the lyrics. Last call.

Elvis becomes Ellis (easy!) to avoid any Wayne Presley confusion. bio's point about unis made me realize they had to be mentioned. Couldn't work in goathead, but did come up with a change: Larry Quinn, Bettman, blue and gold is back again. That brings in the whole story of wearing the blue and gold last game of 2002-03, then waiting for the blue and gold to be official for over three more years.

As for the slug: I am on the fence about this, but maybe: Do you believe, Trump's hairpiece, Lucic, Hull in crease. Kind of an out of order catchall category of historic indignations.

BTW, for lyrical purposes, the title is now "We Always Loved the Sabres."

Final and I mean final lyrics. It's off to the musician among us. Some changes: had to work in Batman; had to rhyme OjibwaY, so Rob Ray got moved; Drury becomes Soupy; and there's a new line after "suffering." I wanted that line to represent suffering over time, not just very recent (Lucic, tweet).

Soupy, "Who else?", Goo Goo Dolls, goalies in a line brawl
Captains vanish in thin air, Van becomes a millionaire

Goodbye seven, empty wing, hockey heaven, suffering
jochen hecht, hole in net, hull, slug, dudacek

No more beer cups on the floor, FNC's a freakin' bore,
status quo, core, yellin' fore, I can't take it anymore

We always loved the Sabres
When our hearts were churning
When our dreams were burning
We always loved the Sabres
And when we are gone
They will still skate on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on

We always loved the Sabres
When our hearts were churning
When our dreams were burning
We always loved the Sabres
No we didn't hide it
And could never fight it

We always loved the Sabres
When our hearts were churning
When our dreams were burning
We always loved the Sabres
As we learned to suffer
Only gotten tougher

We always loved the Sabres
When our hearts were churning
When our dreams were burning
We always loved the Sabres
No we didn't hide it
And could never fight it

I should probably give an update. The instruments and choruses are recorded. I gotta say, it's sounds pretty f'n good. Way better than I expected,… even with my voice ruining it. I'm leaving tomorrow to go to the 'Dacks for a week (should put that in the Awesome thread) but have the following week off of work, as well. I am planning on finishing it then for a Labor Day release.

While I absolutely detest everything about and produced by Billy Joel, this effort is awesome.

Way to go PA and everyones else involved.

Detest? Really? Why? Inquiring minds want to know.
