Nicely done my friend.
A Song for the Season
... Awesome! Poetic, maize and blue genius. This needs to be played 'round a campfire the night of September 3. Well done.
I could play any guitar but the one with 5 colorful plastic buttons.
Those lyrics are too awesome to not try to memorize and play before the season starts. Nice work, my MgoHomework is now to play the song and remember the lyrics, while drunk.
Wow. I almost tl;dr'd it until I read the first line & realized it was "The Day the Music Died" so I decided to read on.
Song parodies aren't often very good IMHO but this was awesome! Well done!
Perfectly captures the mood of probably all of us right now.
nicely played- now if we can get enough of us in the stadium to sing it!
I hate the be that guy but it's bothering me that such perfection has a flaw. Loser's, not looser's in verse 3. Awesomely done though, very nice.
Don't know how I managed that. Fixed.
Also added two lines for two lines I forgot from the song. "there we were all in one place" and "Church bells all were broken".
And for anyone wanting to play this, it's pretty basic chord structure:
AMERICAN PIE (Don Mclean) (SIMPed by Sennet) . G D Em A long, long time ago__ Am C Em D I can still remember how that music used to make me smile.__ . G D Em Am C And I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance . Em C D and maybe they'd by happy for a while. Em Am Em Am But February made me shiver with every paper I'd deliver. .C G Am C D Bad news on the doorstep. I couldn't take one more step . G D Em Am7 D I can't remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride, G D Em C D7 G C G Something touched me deep inside the day_ the music died._____ . Chorus: . G C G D G C . So bye-bye, Miss American Pie.Drove my Chevy to the levee but the . G D G C G D . levee was dry, them good ole boys were drinkin' whiskey and Rye, singing . Em A7 Em D7 . this'll be the day that I die, This'll be the day that I die.__ verse: G Am, C Am Did you write the book of love and do you have faith in God above?__ . Em D G D Em If the Bible tells you so__ Now do you believe in rock and roll? . Am C Em A7 D7 Can music save your mortal soul? and can you teach me how to dance_ real slow? . Em Am Em Am Well I know that you're in love with him 'cause I saw you dancing in the gym, _ C G A7 C D7 You both kicked off your shoes, Man I dig those rhythm and blues! . G D Em Am C I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck, with a pink carnation and a pick-up truck. . G D Em C D7 G C G But I knew I was out of luck the day, the music died.___ G D7 I started singing.... (chorus)
Well done. That must have taken you a ton of time.
runs efficiently in the morning.
Thanks for all the time and effort. You took on one hell of a song!
May I request a revision of Alice's Restaurant next?
What a great idea! Why didn't I think of it? Song parodies can be so great... Stairway to Freebird, e.g., doesn't need anything more than its title.
I second the Alice's Restaurant nomination. On the other hand, one to avoid at almost all costs would be Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
Blaze - this is fabulous. Bra-to-the-vo!
