    I can't stand American Pie. 3.5 minutes, 4 minutes would've been alright... They say the studio wanted to cut the single back so it would fit on one side of an LP, but in the end decided it was so emotional they had to keep it intact at 8:30 and just put in on both sides.

    La Bamba is an awesome song. Just, ya know, in case you didn't know that.

    Surely the Day The Music Died was November 22nd 1963? I had it on good authority.

    That was JFK's assassination! I was in the 1st grade, standing in the lunch line and everyone (adults-teachers-cafeteria workers) started crying. And there I was, standing in line trying to get my extra milk with my lunch on a tray. It was a sad day...:(
