GUEST,Taliesn In Memoriam: The Day The Music Died (27) RE: In Memoriam: The Day The Music Died 05 Feb 03

"And best of all, if Buddy Holly had lived, we wouldn't have "American Pie."

LOL ;-@
I've held that same sentiment for other over-rated songs that were over-played to death, but then that's a result of the curse of formula format radio.
As a matter of fact it would make an amusing thread subject all its own:
" Songs You Don't Care if You "Ever" hear Again"
1st on my list would be Led Zepplin's "Stairway to Heavan".
"American Pie" would definitely get "honorable mention" on such a list.

BTW: Another variation on the thread title regards a N.Y. Daily News headline on day of the passing of the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia. ( yet another source of "overplayed" material )
"The Day the Dead Died"
