American Pie

Today is Friday the 13th! Friday the 13th has always been a special day for me because I happened to be born on one. However, many other people find these days to be the unluckiest days of the year. To celebrate this day, I decided to listen to American Pie by Don Mclean.

Released October 24, 1971, American Pie reached #1 on the Billboard 200 with its self-titled track “American Pie”. The song was written as a tribute to the plane crash February 3, 1959 twelve years before. This plane crash caused the death of three American rock and roll pioneers: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson. The plane crash has been called the first and greatest tragedy rock and roll has ever suffered.
