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”
