Miss American Pie (Don Mclean 1972)

A long
long time ago I can still remember how
that music used to make me smile
and I knew if I had my chance
that I could make those people dance
and maybe they'd be happy for a while
but February made me shiver
with every paper I'd deliver
bad news on the door step...
I couldn't take one more step
I can't remember if I cried
when I read about his widowed bride
but something touched me deep inside
the day the music died.

So Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
them good old boys were drinking Whiskey and rye
singing this'd be the day that I'd die
this'd be the day that I'd die

Did you write the book of love
and do you have faith in God above
if the Bible tells you so
now do you believe in rock and roll
can music save your mortal soul?
and can you teach me how to dance real slow?
well I know that you're in love with him
'cause I saw you dancing in the the gym
you both kicked off your shoes
Man I dig those rhythm 'n' blues
I was a lonely teenage brocin' buck
with a pink carnation and a pickup truck
but I knew that I was out of luck
the day the music died.

I started singing Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
them good old boys were drinking Whiskey and rye
singing this'd be the day that I'd die
this'd be the day that I'd die

Now for ten years we've been on our own
and moss grows fat on a rolling stone
but that's not how it used to be
when the Jester sang for the king and queen
in a coat he borrowed from James Dean
and a voice that came from you and me
oh, and while the king was looking down
the Jester stole his thorny crown
the courtroom was adjourned
no verdict was returned
and while Lenon read a book on Marx
the quartet practiced in the park
and we sang dirges in the dark
the day the music died.

we were singing Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
them good old boys were drinking Whiskey and rye
singing this'd be the day that I'd die
this'd be the day that I'd die

Helter skelter in a summer swelter
the birds flew off with a fallout shelter
eight miles high and falling fast
it landed foul on the grass
the players tried for a forward pass
With the Jester on the sidelines in a cast
now the half-time air was sweet perfume
while the sergeants played a marching tune
we all got up to dance
oh, but we never got the chance
'cause the players tried to take the field
the marching band refused to yield
do you recall what was revealed
the day the music died.

We started singing Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
them good old boys were drinking Whiskey and rye
singing this'd be the day that I'd die
this'd be the day that I'd die

And there we were all in one place
a generation lost in space
with no time left to start again
so come on Jack be nimble Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
'cause fire is the devil's only friend
and as I watched him on the stage
my hands were clenched in fists of rage
no angel born in hell
could break that satan's spell
and as the flames climbed high into the night
to light the sacrificial rite
I saw satan laughing with delight
the day the music died.

We were singing Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
them good old boys were drinking Whiskey and rye
singing this'd be the day that I'd die
this'd be the day that I'd die

I met a girl who sang the blues
and I asked her for some happy news
but she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store
where I'd heard the music years before
but the man there said the music wouldn't play
but in the streets the children screamed
the lovers cried and the poets dreamed
but not a word was spoken
the church bells all were broken
and the three men I admire most
The Father, Son and The Holy Ghost
they caught the last train for the coast
the day the music died.

They were singing Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove ma chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
and good old boys were drinkin' Whiskey and rye
singin' this could be the day that I die
this could be the day that I die

They were singin' Bye-bye Miss American Pie
drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
them good old boys were drinking Whiskey and rye
singing this'd be the day that I'd die
this'd be the day that I'd die.

Ποιά Madonna ;;;

Το American Pie είναι κλασσικό κομμάτι της ιστορίας του Rock (συνεπάγεται και του Metal) και προκάλεσε μεγάλη αίσθηση στην αμερική την δεκαετία του 70' αναφέρεται στην μέρα που πέθανε η μουσική (3 Φεβροουαρίου 1959) περιέχει αυτοβιογραφικά γεγονότα της ζωής του Don Mclean και γίνονται αναφορές σε συγκροτήματα όπως οι Beatles, οι Grateful Dead, Stones όπως και στον Bob Dylan.

Είναι πραγματικά κρίμα που ξαναήρθε στην επιφάνεια μέσω μίας τόσο μέτριας τραγουδίστριας.

Πράγματι, η μουσική μπορει να ήταν αλλιώς αν η τύχη δεν γύρναγε την πλάτη σε τόσο νέους και ταλαντούχους ανθρώπους εκείνη την ημέρα.

Είχα όλο τον δίσκο σε γνήσια κασέτα (από τον πατέρα μου), μέχρι που "εξαφανίστηκε" πριν απο 2 χρόνια. :evil:

Πρώτη φορά διαβάζω όλους τους στίχους, είναι εκπληκτικό. (όχι ότι τους κατάλαβα όλους)
Μην σε απασχολεί το ότι το τραγούδησε η Μαντόνα, σκέψου ακριβώς ότι ξαναήρθε στην επιφάνεια και ότι ίσως ένα 10% της νεότερης γενιάς μπορεί να έψαξε να μάθει τι ήταν αυτή η μέρα που πέθανε η μουσική. (όχι ότι συγκρίνονται οι δύο εκτελέσεις, πριν τη Μαντόνα το λάτρευα το τραγούδι)
