Who are the King and Queen the Jester Sang For? August 8, 2007

News and Updates Page Offers the Up-to-Date Information on “American Pie”

In order to keep offering other interpretations of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” I’ve started a News and Updates Page to keep the forum open.

The first update includes research that offers a strong connection between Bob Dylan’s “Down in the Flood” and McLean’s “American Pie” … and possibly what might be the definitive interpretation of the line “When the Jester sang for the king and queen” from Verse Three. There is also a new connection to a Buddy Holly song, “Early in the Morning.”
