But I always thought I'd see you again

It struck me that James Taylor's Fire and Rain and Don McLean's American Pie have a similar structure. Both start with a death - a famous person who the singer read about in the news American Pie, a personal friend in Fire and Rain. The narrative of the song then goes beyond the death to other events, but keeps coming back to the original death.
