Seating Options

Don McLean and Judy Collins

Don McLean performs "American Pie" Live in 2011

  • Best film analogy for Don McLean's "American Pie": it's the Citizen Kane of American folk music
  • Worst film analogy for Don McLean's "American Pie": it's the American Pie of American folk music
  • Length: an epic eight-and-a-half minutes
  • Why it's been subject to endless analysis: the lyrics center around The Day the Music Died—a.k.a. the day Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and Big Bopper all died in a plane crash—and possibly other historical events that McLean hasn't confirmed or denied
  • What McLean says the song means: "It means I don't ever have to work again if I don't want to"
  • Other hits: his cover of Roy Orbison's "Crying"; his Van Gogh tribute, simply titled "Vincent"
  • Most common names mentioned in the same breath as Judy Collins': Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan
  • Why: she built her career on folk songs and social activism
  • How she sets herself apart from her influences: by drawing on her classical piano training, and by playing eclectic covers such as "Amazing Grace" and "Send In the Clowns"
  • Her song with the longest-lasting political ramifications: her cover of "Chelsea Morning," which inspired the name of Bill and Hilary Clinton's daughter
