And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died
From Don McLean’s song ‘American Pie’ – commemorating Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J. P. Richardson (The Big Bopper) who died in a plane crash. Don obviously didn’t know about the Eurovision Song Contest, but we await the sequel ‘European Pie’.
