News of Music’s Death Stuns-Executive Order Signed


WASHINGTON, D.C. – After receiving the daily intelligence briefing, one White House staffer casually mentioned that today was the day the music died.  A shocked President Biden paused, mouth agape, for a moment and leapt into action.  Grabbing his trusty executive order writing pen, the President ordered a national referendum and appropriated emergency funds to revive ‘the music’.

“The music is an important national treasure.  We need it to feed us and do the, you know, that thing for us.  I’m initiating an initiative to initiate a research institute to revive, the thing, the music.  For all of us initiative Americans.”

On February 3, 1959, musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Vales, and The Big Bopper were killed in a plane crash near Clear Lake, IA.  Don McClean, in 1971, dubbed it “The Day the Music Died” in his hit song, “American Pie”.
