Monday Inspiration: Don McLean

When I was a kid, my most favourite song was “American Pie” by Don McLean. You know, a completely normal song for a kid in the mid-90’s to know every word to… Imagine my elation when I got a cassette tape of Don McLean’s greatest hits and the sheet music for “American Pie” for my birthday one year! Anyways, his song “Vincent” was also on that cassette and it’s special to me because it was maybe the first song I ever heard that nearly moved me to tears.

He’s just a guy, with a guitar and a beautiful voice, singing poetry.
