I've known this song my whole life and I'm 11 and I love the song but it has a rely deep meaning
I was in a bad mood and this song cheered me right up
RIP Buddy Holly
Sorry I meant 56 years, time flies but not that fast. 3 Feb 1959.
It was 61 years ago today that the music died. This song, written about a dozen years later, will forever come to mind when 3 Feb comes around.
Bed song, I encourage you to look at the meaning for this song online it's deep.
His concert was deeply moving
Love this song
Brings back a lot memories.I saw Don Mclean when he came to Brisvegas recently. He still has it.
Did you know that's where the teenage mutant ninja turtles got their name? Also the famous painter Michael Angelo
Saint Michael : savior of humanity
Saint Rapheal : Gods medicine
You tube video ( Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd )
Or*** spellcheck
Helter skelter- is that a song name on band name ?
God bless America ?
This song has that weak, creepy vibe to it, I'm sorry
never gets old
Yes, it is.
Isn't this song about when Buddy Holly and other rock legends died in a plane crash?
It's a roller coaster ride , when you put a lot of effort into something, then, get shunned away , after a while, people realize there actually was something special there ...example : nirvana
Bloody Sunday

It's incredible. This song does not get old. It still sounds as fresh as it did when I was 16 in 1971! One of the all time greats!
