Thread Name: American pie has a lot to answer for.
Subject: RE: American pie has a lot to answer for.
Neil, you have hit on the very reason why I was never that impressed by "American Pie" (though it has a great tune and chorus, as others have noted). I thought it was asinine and totally inappropriate for Don McClean to suggest that all the "good" music had come to an end when Buddy Holly died, and specially to suggest it nearly 10 years later, for God's sake, after all the wonderful creative stuff that happened during the 60's.

That just made no sense to me at all. Other than that, not a bad song, I guess.
