IN ENGLISH

There were lots of hit songs in the 1970s. Here are a few of them.

American Pie

byDon McLean

Don McLean (born 2nd October 1945) is an American folk rock singer-songwriter. His song American Pie is about a fatal plane crash that caused the deaths of three famous musicians: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.

Song extract:

But I knew I was out of luck, the day the music died, I started singing, bye, bye, Miss American Pie, Drove my Chevy to the Levy but the Levy was dry, Them good old boys were drinking whisky and rye, Singing this will be the day that I die,This will be the day that I die.
