No, it died the day Madonna made that shiatty remake of the song.

I always get the lyrics confused with the Weird Al parody.

"... and good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye.  Soon I will be a Jedi."

I'd drive my Chevy to the levy, but I just had my brakes go out!

Left work on top of mountain, did brake check to check slickness of the road (after two full successful stops) before starting down the hill and the pedal went to the floor!

I'm not happy it happened, but it couldn't have happened at a better time. If I hadn't brake checked myself....

/I like Weird Al's version

The song is not about what you think it is about. It is about hippies destroying American culture.

Big Bopper is lucky he was on that plane, it's the only reason anyone remembers him today.

Eddie Cochran, i like his stuff more than buddy holly. it's hard to say which way either of their music styles would have gone. i mean both only played for like 2 or 3 years before their deaths.

I once got trapped at an event in Pennsyltucky where the warm-up entertainment was a guy who did a 14-minute version of that song. how did I know he did a 14-minute version? He told us he was going to play his famous 14-minute version of that terrible, terrible song but first he had to tell the story of why his 14-minute version was so famous and how it was mentioned in some local newspaper and then he just proceeded to jerk that song off for 14 goddamn minutes.

I once blew a drake cylinder while on an interstate off ramp. Good thing the light turned green because a) I couldn't stop fast enough b) there was a cop waiting for that light.

Anyone know where I can find a levy in Gergia? Got a Chevy already.

They make sense. You just have to know the references. It's about the transformation of the culture from the 50's to the 70's.

Ah yes... American Pie. My dear old dad used to come into my room drunk off his ass and make me play it over and over again on my guitar until 3-4am occasionally stopping to slap me around and call me a worthless piece of sh*t.

Good time... good times.

This. It's basically a "get off my lawn" song.

Personal preference, how does it work?

21-7-b: are you sure? because it seems like the live version of american pie goes on for longer than 54 years


Length
8:33 (LP)
4:11 (Single Part 1)
4:31 (Single Part 2)
8:30 YouTube Video

it is an obnoxiously long song though, that is for certain.

On a related note, I worked a DMcL concert years ago (1981) as a tech. Everyone in the band and crew were really cool.

DMcL was pretty much an arse.

I think he was a fan of the Beatles before Sgt Pepper. Also, The Jester and the Lady that sings the Blues are American.

These are just a few of the musicians who have died in plane/helicopter crashes.  They were all flying in small/light aircraft.  Don't fly in small aircraft. Farking death traps is what they are.

The song itself is fine.  The way some people deify the song is obnoxious.

And those of you biatching about it being too long - it could always be Alice's Restaurant.

Re: Ronnie Van Zandt.  He died in a Convair 240.  I didn't know that was a small/light plane. I mean it's not a jet, but it's not a small plane either.
