It is not often obvious, but music – especially “rock” music, has a deeply spiritual side to it. Because we live in a fallen world the music of the world reflects this fact. E.g. you don’t have to be the sharpest tool in the shed to figure out the deity being exalted in the song “Luci in the sky with diamonds” (Ezekial 28:13)but it takes a tad more understanding to realize that Don McLean is referring to the rapture when he sings “the three men I admire the most, caught the last train for the coast the day the music died”. In fact Don let his guard slip once in a TV interview and admitted “the song (U.S Pie) is a warning to America about what happens when the spirit leaves”.
I would like to thank Jack for expressing the plain simple truth on this website and looking forward to catching up with him at the wedding feast not many days from now.
