It's like The Eagles (pick a song). It's well overplayed, and it's nonsense. If the lyrics at least told a story, I could dig it.

I've been really into old country lately. Every song has a tale, and maybe a moral.

Most everything from the 60's onward, in the rock/pop category is just poetic nonsense. Like nigger noise, just syllables that are euphonious.

The lyrics of this song actually do tell a story about music and the music industry. Saying goodbye to Buddy Holly is the easy part to catch in this, but the Beatles make an appearance, among others.

Debunked, by McLean himself. It's gibberish.

I am curious what you think good music is?

I agree, somewhat. Older country music is another genre I enjoy. It's music I was raised around and I come from a musical family. They all played an instrument and/ or sang all types of music. The shit they come out with today is indeed, garbage.
