How well do you know the song “American Pie”?

Don McLean released his song “American Pie” in November of 1971. The lyrics speak of “the day the music died”. That date was February 3, 1959 when a small plane carrying Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper, three of popular music’s biggest stars, crashed in Iowa during a blizzard. Using that date as a starting point, the song focuses on the music and major events of the 1960s.
