This week's theme is songs about music, so I immediately thought of American Pie by Don McLean––an American classic that I never grow tired of. He sings about "the day the music died" . . . but it didn't really, even though there was a horrific plane crash that ended the lives of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper.
Here's Don McLean singing "American Pie."
And the music whose artists died, but the songs are still alive.
Buddy Holly singing "Peggy Sue"
Richie Valens singing "Let's Go."
The Big Bopper singing "Chantilly Lace."
