Madonna - American PieGiven that the original version of this track was released some decades ago, it's rather disappointing that Madonna and William Orbit haven't been able to come up with something a little different. It's basically a re-hash of the original, the only real difference being Madonna's vocals and that it's been jazzed up a bit. It's relatively catchy and will probably do well, but given what they could have done, this is a bit of a lame attempt.

"American Pie" is a true classic record. A wonderful piece of music, which combines mourning with just plain brilliance. So why has Madonna decided to murder it? The first time I heard this I barely recognised it. Please, no matter how much you like "American Pie", or indeed Madonna (and I rate both very highly) give this a wide berth. When she decided to record this it really was "the day the music died".
