American Pie...Don McLean, 1971.
A Serenade of Seventies songs, from the soundtrack of my life, is my theme for the A-Z challenge this year.
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile...
I used to sing this song in grade school, while riding my bike around in my grandparents' driveway. There were some brief explanations here and there as to what the lyrics were talking about. I admit that it didn't matter much to me at that time, as I just liked to sing.
Over a decade later we were singing this same song in bars at college. Everybody knew the chorus at the very least. It was a sort of legacy that had been passed down. My sixteen year old is familiar with it as well. If you know kids currently in college, can you find out if they are still singing it? Do they know what it was about?
Do you recall what was revealed the day the music died?
The a-z challenge is here! Thanks for stopping by for a few bars.
I will be responding to comments via email when available, and here in comments when it is not.
