I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile...


40th anniversary of "American Pie" by Don McLean. cool

And yes, I do remember. I was at a friend's house, hanging out, when this song came on, and we were so mesmerized by its haunting lyrics we put down our baseball and gloves so we could take it all in.

Holy smokes, I remember too.

In fact I was a paper boy then, and I used some of my earnings to buy the record. It was the 1st album I ever bought with my own cash.

I am, to this day, haunted by the way too personal information it provides about Larry Levy.

Ugh.

Ugh.

It was probably second only to "Stairway to Heaven" in number of plays in the '70s. In fact, they came out about the same time.
