American Pie

Filed under: music — Brandon @ 4:12 pm

This post is dedicated to Don McLean’s song “American Pie”. I was prompted to post this after watching a YouTube video that explains the lyrics in a series of photos displayed as the song played…a documentary in music video format if you will. I’ve always loved this song, though I doubt that I will ever appreciate it as much as someone who was alive to see all of the events referenced in the song as they unfolded. It is a lesson in American history.


This is a very complex song and I want to capture as much of the meaning behind the lyrics as I can. I probably have a lot of research to do on this, but for now, here is the video and a few links to get started:
