American Pie by BenoitAubry American Pie by BenoitAubry
Don McLean performs American Pie.

From Wikipedia:

"Recorded and released on the American Pie album in 1971, the single was a number-one U.S. hit for four weeks in 1972. The song is an abstract story of his life that starts with the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. Richardson (The Big Bopper) in a plane crash in 1959, and ends in 1970; in the song he called the plane crash "the day the music died," . The importance of American Pie to America's musical and cultural heritage was recognized by the Songs of the Century education project which listed the song performed by Don McLean as the number five song of the twentieth century."

Indeed it is; at first I thought it was a peculiar story, and then I learned all the historical importance. ^^

Sure thing! And no problem! :D
