I'm sure you've seen it too 'cause I've already received it from five people this week...
A video of Uncle Sam parodying our democrat leadership, sung to the tune of Don McClean's "American Pie". It's pretty well done, but as a music lover that can remember "The day the music died", I'm once again distracted by the tune itself.
The connection to the death of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and "Big Bopper" J.P. Richardson is obvious. But Man! There are a lot of words in that song and the connection some of them have to the main theme has always made me curious.
Well I went surfing and found this explanation that seems to make about as much sense as anything else I've read.
The day the music died.
Music was such an important cultural factor from '63 to the mid 70's. How different could it/would it have been if Buddy had survived?
"If you knew... Peggy Sue"...
It's an interesting question.
