It's Back!

I just discovered that the original version of "Burning Down The House: What Caused Our Economic Crisis?" is back on YouTube.



Let's revisit a claim documented in my original post. Ed Morissey had stated that "entire songs were used in this publication." Oh really? Here's the soundtrack list with duration times:

"Money for Nothing," Dire Straits -- 2:20
"Free Falling," John Mayer -- 0:51
"Burning Down the House," Talking Heads -- 0:33
"Holding Out For A Hero," Bonnie Tyler -- 0:52
"Money Talks," AC/DC --2:07
"Save Me," Remy Zero -- 3:16
"Redemption" (Rocky II theme), Bill Conti (composer) -- 0:09
"Eye of the Tiger," Survivor -- 0:58

The closest thing to an entire song is the third to last; this YouTube video of "Save Me" has a 4:20 duration.

Mayer doesn't have that Tom Petty creepiness to make that song work. This is how "Free Falling" is done:
