For music fans it may be hard to believe that it has been 40 years since Don McLean's iconic "American Pie" reached #1 on the Billboard pop singles charts. In the autumn of 1971 Don McLean's classic American Pie entered the collective consciousness of pop music, and over forty years later remains one of the most discussed, dissected and debated songs that popular music has ever produced. A cultural event at the peak of its popularity in 1972, it reached the top of the Billboard 100 charts in a matter of weeks, selling more than 3 million copies; and at the lengthy cut of eight and a half minutes long, this was not an easy feat.
