We Didn't Start the We Didn't Start the Fire Gimmick

NewTeeVee posts all the year-end roundups that are coincidentally scored to Billy Joel’s "We Didn’t Start the Fire." I can believe no one intentionally copied the other, but they all suffer for it. Of the three that came out, JibJab feels the most derivative, as it’s trite on two counts – both with the song choice, and with this year’s clip feeling like all their others. I’m done forwarding them around. You read it here: JibJab jumped the shark.

If you need a new song for next year, go with one of these:
* American Pie
* Bohemian Rhapsody
* Hey Ya

Any others you’d like to see as the overdone soundtrack for 08?
