'American Pie' Rocks Top-40 Radio

Latest Madonna single reportedly most-added track of the week.

Madonna's electronica-tinged cover of Don McLean's "American Pie" was the most-added track at top-40 radio stations across the country last week, according to Maverick Records. The cover version, which omits several verses from McLean's 1971 original, also was the most-added track at stations playing the Hot Adult Contemporary format. The song will be included on the soundtrack to Madonna's upcoming film "The Next Best Thing," which opens March 3. The soundtrack album will be released Feb. 22. "American Pie" was produced by William Orbit, who also worked on Madonna's Ray of Light (1998).
