I’m interrupting my regular schedule to effuse about a single line in the song “American Pie” (the Original, best and longest not the Madonna murderlized version) it is a fantastic line and so cleverly written and took me until today, sitting in a traffic queue and actually concentrating on the song lyrics to fully appreciate the meaning. Okay, so here’s the verse it comes from. I’ll let you read it and decide.
“While men in
Read a book on Marx
A quartet practised
In the park…”
Take your time. Hopefully you’ll understand my love of the line.
