Monday Morning, Don McLean in a great re-make of “American Pie,” fifty years later. At last, all the verses again–not like the awful truncated version from Madonna. McLean is accompanied by the wonderful acapella group, Home Free. As always, not an instrument in sight; all the percussion you hear are mouth sounds from band member Adam Rupp, in the short-sleeve purple T-shirt. See here if you don’t believe it.
Once, when McLean was asked what the song meant, he replied, “It means I’ll never have to work again if I don’t want to.”
The amazing Adam Rupp of the a capella song group Home Free provides the percussion for the singers. In this phenomenal “drum solo” he proves to the audience that there’s no drum kit up his sleeve, and that it’s all done vocally.
