“American Pie,” part of the American lexicon, is one of the most covered songs ever and got McLean into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
He also got pretty rich off of the interminable ballad.
The one-hit wonder recently sold off the handwritten lyrics to “American Pie” to Christie’s Auction House for a reported $1.2 million.
