I think 'American Pie' is great.
I sang 'American Pie' a lot in my stage set. It had a knack of uniting an audience in a sing-along. It's a clever song about American history but wrapped in a fantastic tune.
I've always been a big fan of Bill Paxton, and I met him at the American Pie premiere.
American Pie speaks to the loss that we feel. That's why that song has found the niche that it has.
