Christmas in Fallujah

Never been a Billy Joel fan, but he's penned a great new tune, now a YouTube favorite, called "Christmas in Fallujah," sung by Cass Dillon, 21, an unknown from Billy's native Long Island. Joel said it's based on letters he's received from the troops and he wanted a young guy about the age of many of the soldiers in Iraq to sing it. Net proceeds to Home for Our Troops. Of course, he could have called it "We Didn't Start the Fire." I posted it once before, but on Christmas Eve, here it is again.
