[JR: “The Day the Music Died”? Not even close. That label is reserved. “Donna” has to be one of the most gut wrenching songs ever written. Reminds me of @tswift13’s songs. Argh!]

This one perhaps a bit less politically incorrect so it may stay up there…

The title of your article (The Day the Music Died: Manhattan College DJs Axed by Residence Life) reminded me of one of my very early experiences at MC, back in 1969/70.  The little student union cafe at that time was called Plato’s Cave, and I was there with a girlfriend.   Some guy was playing the guitar for the crowd of about 20 or 30 of us and at one point he asked that if anyone was recording he’d like them not to record because he wanted to play a song that he hadn’t quite finished working on and hadn’t played in public yet.  
 
Don MacLean then launched into American Pie and we all gave him a great round of applause!
