==================

I'm well tired of American Pie, but....The Reflex? 99 Red Balloons? Waiting for a Star to Fall? Among the greatest songs of all time. My goodness!

I still love "American Pie".  It's actually been a long time since I've heard it.  I always compare it to Billy Joel's "Piano Man" for some reason.
