Default "American Pie" explained. maybe.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ycgegp0KdE4

This takes about 10 minutes since the whole song is played. There are text and images relevant to a possible explanation of the lyrics.

Enjoy!

Very interesting.

Oddly enough, one of the images in the video is of a Grand Banks 42 obviously washed ashore during a hurricane - Camille (1969) perhaps? (at 06:22 of 08:45 in the video, third refrain ......"but the levee was dry")

I did a paper in High School English on the allegories in the song.

Most songs from the '60's make more sense when heard thru smoke....doobie smoke.
