I love Dom McLendon so much. This interpretation of American Pine
is one of the best I have ever read. Keep up the good work, Stewart.

I just wanted to thank Mr.McLean for writing such an emotional,yet
inspirational song.He made his point through his lyrics,yet some were
mislead.But after reading the interview,"American Pie" was just more
than a song...it was a song from the heart and soul of a true rock 'n'

Thanks for your great analysis of American Pie. I saw Don McLean
in concert in Sydney last week
and wanted to look over the songs meanings. I first studied the words
in 1973 in my last year of school
when we had a really radical teacher. It was a conservative Catholic
school and they sacked him not long after.
The concert and your site brought back great memories. Cheers, Mark

I like this song and for months I've been thinking, "What is this
guy talking about?" So the interpretation
really helped. I live in New Orleans and i'm 13

Thanks a heap! I've known about some of these references, but reading
about all the possibilities is
mind-blowing, as well as extremely informative and enjoyable!

WOW the amount of research u did was amazing,im 20 years old n didnt
noe of the song till madonna
sang it,but as i was searching i found that Don mcleen was the actual
singer n since i never ehard any
of his songs i thought to take a gamble n buy 1 of his old cassete's
that i found in a bazzar here, i realised
that when he sang it it wasnt just a catchy tune , but u could also
feel his "soul in the music" n so after
that i went on the internet to search for what was actually the meaning
of the song american pie,id like
to end this by saying thank you so much for taking the time to state
down what to u the music means

Great site, especially the interpretation...which sort of makes sense,
doesn't it? Has anyone else
seen the "versions" page? I'm not going to advertise a web site, thanks
This is really cool.

Wow, I was weaned on sixties music and I'm crazy about it but I've
never looked so deeply into these amazing lyrics before. Thankyou! Kate

Wow, grea job on the site. I was wondering what all the references
in American Pie were.
I got interested in it during my stay at a CTY camp and searched for
a site about it through google.
Yours came up at the top.
Slainte, and thank you!
USA - Wednesday, September 01, 2004 at 00:27:18 (CDT)
Thanks for the awesome analysis of the song. I grew up listening to the song and at one point knew all the words but I was too young to understand what I was singing. When I recently ran across a cd and heard American Pie again it sparked my curiosity. Being of a younger generation I had absolutly no idea what much of it meant. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into the analysis.

I just found your site by doing a search for the translation of the lyrics to American Pie. I had the idea that the lyrics had alot to do with the political and rock scenes of the 60's which I know very little about. Surprisingly, most of my ideas about the song's meaning agree with yours, however, I still think that "The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" is simply literal, meaning, as a conclusion to his parable, that, because of all of the awful things going on in our country at that time, McClean felt that God had turned his back on us. That God had left the country.
Anyway, I enjoyed reading the entire translation and consider myself more educated in American History for having read it. Thanks for taking the time to research this.
USA - Tuesday, August 24, 2004 at 09:15:55 (CDT)
I, too, believe that the 60's were the beginning of the moral decay of America and as a parent, I believe Benjamin Spock had a lot to do with the way our children and grandchildren are behaving. I do see some hope of things turning around and people at least having to be accountable for their action. Your song was great then and the same now.

I have been a fan of McLean since hearing him in person at an outdoor concert many years ago in Springfield, Illinois. I've always pondered the meaning of the lyrics of "American Pie" and greatly appreciate your analysis. Thank you. I think my favorite McLean song is "Vincent,'" although I like most of his work that I'm familiar with.

Hi, I'm not sure how I came upon your site; I'd seen the Usenet FAQ *many* years ago (probably about '91-92) and I like to revisit the different analyses every once in a while. Here's one you may not have seen, although there's really nothing new here: http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a3_398b.html

I may not have been around to expierence Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, and The Beatles but thanks to Don McLean, American Pie, and your interpritation of them i now have a much greater appreciation for music.

An excellent website to say the least. Anyone interested in learning about the meaning behind this great song should immediatly visit this eloquent website!

Good work. You really deciphered what the song is all about and explained it in a very clear and descriptive style. Nicely done.

I LOVE THIS SITE!!! I have beem listening to this for a while, and i really could never find a good informative site on the symbolism behind it. Thanks!!
United States - Wednesday, June 09, 2004 at 15:34:56 (CDT)
i don't buy into the different theories re: political reasons regarding the song. To me it is about how Don McLean's perception of music has changed since the death of Buddy Holly, and each verse is a narrative in time line fashion of different musical artists and the events surrounding each artist. If you look at it in a time line sense and stick with the undisputed facets of the song, many of the other theories don't stack up.

Just great! This is the best interpretation about American Pie that I have seen. Full with details and very clear.
Nobody has done something in this level. I have checked hundreds of sites and interpretations but this is different.

A great site--best one I have seen on the subject. I actually teach the song as part of a history lesson on Vietnam and the 60's, and found this website to be the most helpful in gathering research.

I love the song American Pie, and I didn't know what exactly what all of it meant. My parents tried to explain most of it but a lot of it they didn't know. So I did an advanced search on Google.com and found this website. Vietnam and the 60's and 70's fascinate me...so thanks so much for this site!!
USA - Monday, May 10, 2004 at 17:05:08 (CDT)
I like your thoughts, I had no idea that story behind the song could actually have been that deep. Your research and conclusions were very impressive and I'm glad to have found the site.

Great site. I had never heard all the words to this tune before, even though I have been singing it since it became a hit many years ago. I still have this music on an LP and still enjoy playing it. I will have to play it again, now I have the words!! I got your site from a friend who lives in the States. Thanks again.

I thought 'as i watched him on the stage my hands were slinched in fist of rage" was about Jimi Hendrix setting his guitar on fire and therefore giving a reason for people who don't like rock music to point an accusing finger.I thought he did it to push us closer to love.People were so happy that the stage did,nt burn down that they would hug one another and say how happy thy are that everything is ok
