Although Don McLean 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! I have listened to American Pie for many years and I thought I understood the meaning of all the words. Now I 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!
