The Don McLean Story
Killing Us Softly With His Songs
When the jester sang for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me
I think it goes a lot deeper than most people think. She was the queen in the court of Camelot, after the song in the coat borrowed from James dean, she was just another jester in the court.
Wasn’t this song originally written as a poem – of course, by Don McLean – in 1961 when he was 16 in response to the plane crash the day the music died? Please correct me if I am wrong.
Im writing a commencement speech for my class in memory of the day the music died and Im using somewhat of lyrical breakdown of American Pie to do so and wanted to make sure I got my facts straight.
Your a car guy? This makes me really happy. And I love the Rolls your pictured with. Maybe I’ll see you at the Woodward cruise one day, bring the Rolls.
