Chicken Parm, Clowns And American Pie. How I spent My Saturday Night.

don and judy

After a great chicken parm dinner with the Coupongy Correspondents from Cherry Hill, the Fireman and I went to see Judy Collins and Don McLean in concert.

I fully admit I did not know anything about Judy Collins.  What I thought I knew was totally wrong.

According to the concert handout, Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism.  I don’t know about any of that, but what I do know now is that she has an angelic voice that thunders throughout the whole arena.  I had no idea.

The second part of the evening was brought to us by Don McLean.  I love pie.  I love American Pie.  I heard people around me comment that they were surprised that Judy Collins opened for Don McLean.  I don’t know.  Nothing against Judy Collins, but it seemed ok to me.  Probably because I love pie.

Also according to the concert handout, Don McLean has over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and in 2004 was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.

As for me, he could have stood on stage and sang American Pie for the whole hour and I would have been fine with that.  It was that good.

And, I even spotted my dentist in the crowd getting down with his bad self!
