Madonna, Music And The Movies: From Desperately Seeking Susan To W.E.

“American Pie,” The Next Best Thing

Madonna took this Don McLean classic and made it her own in 2000 by trimming some lyrics, adding electronic beats and incorporating backing vocals from her Best Thing co-star Rupert Everett. In the accompanying video she again led the way, including gay and lesbian couples in the video years before Xtina or Katy Perry did.
