    I always thought American Pie got to number one too. Apparently Vincent was a bigger international hit.

    Though Maddonna total re-wrote it's History, did'nt she steer it to Number 1 in 1999/2000 though George?

    On a sub-note I hope if it was possible with Don not being as present as he was in the Music Industry that one day he and Maddonna can make a duet of his original version - that would be amazing!

    Wasn't It's History one of Madonna's albums?
