Two Greats. One CD!!!!!!!!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Hello, I am the only 12 year old I know who likes this kind of music (and has heard any of these songs except American Pie.) Don McClean has is a good singer and a GREAT songwriter. Jim Croce is a Great songwriter and one of the best vocalists in rock (or in all music). My mom bought me this at Wal-Mart for 6 bucks today and I had heard all but one of the Jim Croce songs and two Don McClean songs.
American Pie, Pt.1-Don McLean- A word of warning to those who are buying the cd for this track only: this is not the long version. Even the short version is in the top ten songs ever.
I Got a Name-Jim Croce- A autobiographal song about his dream to play music.
Castles in the Air-Don McLean- Similar to I Got A Name
You Don't Mess Around With Jim-Jim Croce- Great song with a good lesson: don't bully people
Everyday-Don McLean- Good ballad
Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels)-Jim Croce- One of his best and most popular tunes.
Vincent-Don McLean- A story song that tells about a lover who commits suicide.
Time in a Bottle-Jim Croce- 2nd best on album and showcases his vocals. I also like the catchy guitar intro.
Dreidel-Don McLean- This is a fast paced song and proves that the acoustic rockers could go electric when they wanted to.
Workin' at the Car Wash Blues-Jim Croce- This is funny
Another review stated that this will not be a CD that gathers dust. I don't know since its the first day I've owned it, but, right now it's one of my favorites."
