Something for Thursday

Yesterday was the 51st anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper, so this seems apropos. Here's Don McLean.

Here are the annotated lyrics.

A great, great song. One of my all-time favourites. I went out and bought an album once, called, I think, American Pie and other Hits. I didn't recognise a single other song on the album, but that was OK. All I wanted was American Pie. What did I get? A truncated AM radio version of the song, and ten other songs I'd never heard before. Stupid record company!
