    Lyrics:
    A long long time ago
    I can still remember how
    That music used to make me smile
    And I knew if I had my chance
    That I could make those people dance
    And maybe they'd be happy for a while
    But February made me shiver
    With every paper I'd deliver
    Bad news on the doorstep
    I couldn't take one more step
    I can't remember if I cried
    When I read about his widowed bride
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day the music died
    So

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Did you write the book of love
    And do you have faith in God above
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Now do you believe in rock and roll?
    Can music save your mortal soul?
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

    Well, I know that you're in love with him
    Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
    You both kicked off your shoes
    Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
    I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
    With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
    But I knew I was out of luck
    The day the music died
    I started singin'

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Now, for ten years we've been on our own
    And moss grows fat on a rolling stone
    But, that's not how it used to be
    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
    Oh and while the king was looking down
    The jester stole his thorny crown
    The courtroom was adjourned
    No verdict was returned
    And while Lenin read a book on Marx
    The quartet practiced in the park
    And we sang dirges in the dark
    The day the music died
    We were singin'

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Helter skelter in a summer swelter
    The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
    Eight miles high and falling fast
    It landed foul on the grass
    The players tried for a forward pass
    With the jester on the sidelines in a cast
    Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
    While sergeants played a marching tune
    We all got up to dance
    Oh, but we never got the chance
    Cause the players tried to take the field
    The marching band refused to yield
    Do you recall what was revealed
    The day the music died?
    We started singin'

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Oh, and there we were all in one place
    A generation lost in space
    With no time left to start again
    So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
    Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
    Cause fire is the devil's only friend
    And as I watched him on the stage
    My hands were clenched in fists of rage
    No angel born in Hell
    Could break that Satan's spell
    And as the flames climbed high into the night
    To light the sacrificial rite
    I saw Satan laughing with delight
    The day the music died
    He was singin'

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    I met a girl who sang the blues
    And I asked her for some happy news
    But she just smiled and turned away
    I went down to the sacred store
    Where I'd heard the music years before
    But the man there said the music wouldn't play
    And in the streets the children screamed
    The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
    But not a word was spoken
    The church bells all were broken
    And the three men I admire most-
    the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost-
    They caught the last train for the coast
    The day the music died
    And they were singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die
    This'll be the day that I die

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin' this'll be the day that I die

    A long, long time ago...
    I can still remember
    How that music used to make me smile.
    And I knew if I had my chance
    That I could make those people dance
    And, maybe, they'd be happy for a while.

    But february made me shiver
    With every paper I'd deliver.
    Bad news on the doorstep;
    I couldn't take one more step.

    I can't remember if I cried
    When I read about his widowed bride,
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day the music died.

    So bye-bye, miss american pie.
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
    Singin', this'll be the day that I die.
    this'll be the day that I die.

    Did you write the book of love,
    And do you have faith in God above,
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Do you believe in rock 'n roll,
    Can music save your mortal soul,
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

    Well, I know that you're in love with him
    `cause I saw you dancin' in the gym.

    Liner Notes:

    I have to start by thanking Shawn Herbert for his excellent animation and filming on this. I think we created something pretty special together, and I'm really happy with how this turned out.
    I've always loved this song and always loved Van Gogh's art, so when I learned that Shawn had some animating skills, I thought this would be the perfect project to let him do his thing. He really killed it, and I'm so grateful for the time he spent on this.

    I had the privilege of going to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam last year, which was a thrill. Conspicuously (and sadly) absent from that collection is The Starry Night, which is in New York's Museum of Modern Art. I plan to pay that painting a visit this fall on my trip to New York (where I'll be performing with Jeff Hall on 9/29/17 And while I can't bring the painting back to the Netherlands with me on the next trip, I can at least bring this song. :)

    I'd also like to thank Don McLean for this beautiful song. It's a masterpiece in its own right.

    And thanks to you for listening/watching, and for helping spread the music.

    Until the next song,

    -Mike

    The Best Of Don McLean

    Legendary Songs Of Don McLean Album

  • Don McLean - Over the Waterfall / Babylon.

    8:42

    This is Don McLean 'solo' at the Royal Albert Hall, London on the 15th October 1973. This was his second appearance at this legendary venue. He will be appearing there again on 7th May 2010, with his band but hopefully he will include some solo songs, with just his guitar. And HOPEFULLY, he will also play a song or two on his banjo, like he did on his 2007 visit.

    This video has been uploaded as part of the 'BRING BACK THE BANJO' Campaign.

    UPDATE - April 2010.

    The Brilliant News is that Don HAS brought back the banjo, saying it was due to so many fans saying how much they liked it.

    In 2007, Don had his banjo with him (check the videos on YouTube) but after the Albert Hall concert (26/7/2007) Don told me that it was gettin' too darn heavy to carry around and that it would not be coming back. I. and many others, honestly believe that Don does not realise how important the banjo part of the show is / was to his many legions of fans who have followed him for the past 40 years.

    Very many thanks to 'B' as without him I would not have this ultra rare, historic clip. Home video recorders in 1973 were extremely rare then, in fact I did not know they existed. We had only just got our first Colour TV and this was always remembered as the 'yellow shirt' concert. Originally 45 minutes, the BBC repeated it a few months later trimmed to 35 minutes.

    It is wonderful to revisit memories of the time when I was just discovering Don for the first time and collecting all those early albums, and of course taping the sound of this concert with the trusty mike dangled in front of the TV speaker and hushing everyone in the room to keep quiet (for Don).

    How the world has changed with DVD Recorders and YouTube where nearly every video moment is available in seconds, to be watched as many times as you like. I first saw this concert in February 1974 (I think) and then only saw it again in 2009. Many thanks to the person who sent it to me.

    Banjo loving Don McLean fans are invited to post. :-) That banjo should be played, not stored away . . . . .

    And I love you so by Don Mclean part three of five!

    Lyrics:

    And I love you so.
    The people ask me how,
    How I've lived till now.
    I tell them I don't know.

    I guess they understand
    How lonely life has been.
    But life began again
    The day you took my hand.

    And, yes, I know how lonely life can be.
    The shadows follow me, and the night won't set me free.
    But I don't let the evening get me down
    Now that you're around me.


    And you love me, too.
    Your thoughts are just for me;
    You set my spirit free.
    I'm happy that you do.

    The book of life is brief
    And once a page is read,
    All but love is dead.
    That is my belief.

    And, yes, I know how loveless life can be.
    The shadows follow me, and the night won't set me free.
    But I don't let the evening bring me down
    Now that you're around me.

    And I love you so.
    The people ask me how,
    How I've lived till now.
    I tell them, i don't know.

  • The Birthday Song ~ Don McLean

    2:37

    Donald Don McLean (born October 2, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter. He is most famous for the 1971 album American Pie, containing the songs American Pie and Vincent.

    At his core Don is an American individualist – he does things his own way… Don is a poet like a Byron or a Keats in that regard for having a pop sensibility mixed with folk music and rock n roll… I think for centuries to come you'll hear people doing cover versions of his songs.

    McLean's grandfather and father were also named Donald McLean. The Buccis, the family of McLean's mother, Elizabeth, came from Abruzzo in central Italy. They left Italy and settled in Port Chester, New York, at the end of the 19th century. He has other extended family in Los Angeles and Boston.
    As a teenager, McLean became interested in folk music, particularly the Weavers' 1955 recording At Carnegie Hall. Childhood asthma meant that McLean missed long periods of school, particularly music lessons, and although he slipped back in his studies, his love of music was allowed to flourish. He often performed shows for family and friends. By age 16 he had bought his first guitar (a Harmony acoustic archtop with a sunburst finish) and begun making contacts in the music business, becoming friends with folk singer Erik Darling, a latter-day member of the Weavers.
    McLean recorded his first studio sessions (with singer Lisa Kindred) while still in prep school.
    McLean graduated from Iona Preparatory School in 1963, and briefly attended Villanova University, dropping out after four months. While at Villanova he became friends with singer/songwriter Jim Croce.....

  • Interview: Don McLean Talks About Garth Brooks

    3:35

    Legendary Don McLean talked to The Country Note about his friend Garth Brooks and The Central Park Concert in 1997.

  • Vincent, Sternenklare Nacht , h.v.J.F.

    4:29

    Für mich ist *Don McLean* einer der besten Singer Songwriter seiner Zeit dieses Lied ist ein ganz besonderes und deshalb haben Christina und ich angefangen uns den Text zu übersetzen um den Inhalt zu verstehen. Dann haben wir entschieden einen deutschen Text für dieses tolle Lied zu schreiben, und das ist das Ergebnis ...

    Hier ein paar Infos zum Song:

    Vincent ( Sternenklare Nacht ),

    ist ein Lied von Don McLean, das dieser 1971 als Hommage an den Maler Vincent van Gogh schrieb. Das Stück ist auch unter seiner ersten Textzeile Starry Starry Night bekannt. Das Lied erschien erstmals auf dem im Oktober 1971 veröffentlichten Album American Pie und wurde nach dem gleichnamigen Titellied zum zweiterfolgreichsten Stück des Sängers. Vincent war im Juni 1972 für zwei Wochen auf Platz 1 in Großbritannien, in den Amerikanischen Charts erreichte es Platz 12.
    Die Grundtonart des Stücks ist G-Dur. Der Gesang wird anfänglich ausschließlich durch Gitarre begleitet, gegen Ende kommen im Hintergrund ein weich tremolierendes Xylophon und eine Streichergruppe hinzu. Die Akkordfolge der Strophen und des Refrains werden bei den Wiederholungen variiert.

    Bezüge zu Vincent van Gogh
    McLean berichtet im Interview, er habe das Lied angeregt durch die Lektüre der Biographie des Künstlers komponiert und damit seine Bewunderung für den Maler ausgedrückt. Die Liedzeilen lassen an mehrere Bilder van Goghs denken, beispielsweise die Sternennacht („Starry, Starry Night“), die Selbstporträts („Weathered faces lined in pain“) und seine Landschaftsdarstellungen („Morning fields of amber grain “). Auch nimmt der Text Bezug auf van Goghs Depression und den vermuteten Freitod des Malers („You took your life“). Das lyrische Ich bezeichnet Van Gogh als leidend („And how you suffered for your sanity“) und unverstanden („They would not listen, they did not know how“).

    Rezeption,
    Der Song hat verschiedene Musiker zu Coverversionen inspiriert, unter anderem Passenger, Josh Groban, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran und James Blake. Ein Cover der englischen Sängerin Lianne La Havas diente zur musikalischen Hinterlegung des Abspanns der 2017 veröffentlichten polnisch-britischen Filmproduktion Loving Vincent.
    Das Stück gehört ebenso zum Repertoire zahlreicher Instrumentalisten. Recht bekannt ist etwa die Gitarren-Fassung von Chet Atkins, die bereits 1972 auf dessen Album Pickin’ the Hits und zuletzt 2013 in Playlist: The Very Best of Chet Atkins erschien.


    Vincent ( Starry, starry night ),

    is a song by Don McLean, which he wrote in 1971 as a tribute to the painter Vincent van Gogh. The piece is also known under its first line of text, Starry Starry Night. The song first appeared on the American Pie album released in October 1971 and became the singer's second most successful piece after the title song of the same name. Vincent was number 1 in the UK for two weeks in June 1972 and number 12 in the American Charts.
    The key of the piece is G major. The vocals are initially accompanied exclusively by guitar, towards the end a softly trembling xylophone and a string group are added. The chord progression of the stanzas and the chorus are varied during repetitions.

    References to Vincent van Gogh
    In an interview, McLean reports that he composed the song by reading the artist's biography, expressing his admiration for the painter. The song lines make one think of several pictures by Van Gogh, for example the starry night (Starry, Starry Night), the self-portraits (Weathered faces lined in pain) and his landscapes (Morning fields of amber grain). The text also refers to van Gogh's depression and the painter's suspected suicide (You took your life). Van Gogh describes the lyrical self as suffering (And how you suffered for your sanity) and misunderstood (They would not listen, they did not know how).

    Reception,
    The song has inspired various musicians to cover versions, including Passenger, Josh Groban, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran and James Blake. A cover by the English singer Lianne La Havas served as the musical deposit for the credits of the Polish-British film production Loving Vincent, published in 2017.
    The piece also belongs to the repertoire of numerous instrumentalists. The guitar version of Chet Atkins, which appeared on his album Pickin ’the Hits in 1972 and most recently in 2013 in Playlist: The Very Best of Chet Atkins, is quite well known.

  • Don McLean - 1967 Nineteensixtyseven - A song against war

    4:27

    In my opinion this is the most sad song ever wrote against the madness of war. It´s a simply melody with simply lyrics, but every word hurts so much, bringing tears to my eyes. Please take yourself a few minutes time and listen to one of the greatest songwriters ever lived - and also to one of the greatest accusations in music:

    In Nineteen Sixty Seven the draft caught up with me,
    me and my pal Joe went off to war.
    We might find hero's heaven, but we'd keep the country free.
    We would surely win just like before.
    Roy Rogers he was on his horse, and Buck Jones drew his gun.
    We would surely win of course when the battle was all done.

    Nineteen Sixty Seven I came back alone,
    they brought Joe back in plastic on the plane.
    Nineteen Sixty Seven seems so long ago,
    but I can't forget my friend or ease my pain.
    His family may forget him, his children may regret him,
    his wife may find another and go on.
    His picture may grow faded and the world he knew gone jaded
    but as long as I shall live I surely know,
    I never will forget my buddy Joe.

    In Nineteen Sixty Seven, the war was raging on,
    our country was divided and reborn.
    While I was back at home, I had never left Saigon,
    'cause all I got was ridicule and scorn.
    This was no place for hero's now, they all seemed to resent me,
    They said Why did you ever go? I said Because they sent me.

    Nineteen Sixty Seven they buried my friend Joe,
    and I was flashing back while people wept.
    I thought of how he saved us and I watched the land-mine blow,
    and I looked down at his dog-tag that I kept.
    You'll always be a young man, you always will be smiling,
    you always will be confident and true.
    Your picture may grow faded and the world you knew gone jaded,
    but as long as I shall live I surely know,
    I never will forget my buddy Joe.
    Long as I shall live I surely know,
    I never will forget you buddy Joe...
