AMERICAN PIE  Don McLean Recorded in 1971, and released that year on the album of the same name, the single was a number one hit for four weeks in 1972. The song is in itself a history of rock and roll that starts with the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J. P. Richardson, Jr. (The Big Bopper) in a plane crash in 1959, and ends in 1970.

Naomi-I'm very impressed with your diversity of music. This is one of my favorite songs! I crank the radio every time I hear it!

Great post! I love this song even though it's a melancholy tune. When an oldies radio station in my area went off the air a few years ago, it appropriately signed off with this song.

didn't this song have some type of 'record' (no pun intended), for how long it was, to be played on the radio?

It was originally recorded at a little over 10 minutes, but was edited down for broadcasting.
