Why American Pie?


From my cousin – I learned something I did not know before. The video at the link is great!
=========================

All,

Most of us have memories of this happening but here is a well put together video of the time.

ENJOY!!!!

 

 

American Pie.

Although Don McClean only released the song in 1971, for those of us who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s this is a great piece with  some very poignant moments in the history of those times.  And for those of you who did not, it’s a taste of what you missed!  “American Pie”  was the name of the plane in which Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper were killed when it  crashed in 1958.  I have listened to American Pie for many years and I thought I understood what was being sung but now realize that I didn’t!

However, when the words are put together with pictures and film clips the song takes on a new meaning.  It took a lot of thought  to produce this and it brings back lots of memories and also makes the lyrics really come alive!
