  4. 4. 1<br />The phrase “_____ ___" meant only one thing: a metaphor for the lost postwar dream, a requiem for the teenage world of innocence, abundance, and supposed unity that accompanied the rock and roll movement of the Fifties. Which is exactly what was intended when the epic 1972 hit was written that bears its name. On one level, it's just a eulogy for three rock stars who happened to crash in a plane back in 1959 (Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and The Big Bopper), but it's much more than that: The composer actually spends most of the song's 8:38 length talking about what happened in the decade following the crash; the loss of national identity, the triumph of rock excess and hubris, the gradual unraveling of beliefs. It's a eulogy, but not just for those three men.<br />
