"American Pie" was originally written and released by American folk-rock singer and songwriter Don McLean and went to no.1 globally for two weeks in February 1972. Madonna released a cover version of the song in March 2000 to promote the soundtrack to her film The Next Best Thing (2000), with the song being serviced to radio on February 2, 2000. Her version is much shorter than the original (it contains only the beginning of the first verse and all of the second and sixth verses) and was recorded as a dance-pop song. Due to the success of the single, it was included as a bonus track on her 2000 studio album Music, making the song the first single of the new album, however it was not available on the North American version. The song was a worldwide hit, reaching no.1 in many countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia, Italy, Spain, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, and Finland. It was not released commercially in the United States, but it reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 due to strong radio airplay.
