The song that shows poetry is “American Pie” by Don McLean. This shows poetry in the way that the song has a deeper meaning. The first example is the line
Can Music save your mortal soul?
That is saying that Music is the replacement for religion. The song starts off with him as a boy delivering papers and talks about how music had died.
I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride, But something touched me deep inside, The day the music died
This expresses emotion and uses the literary device of Imagery when talking about delivering the paper. The line “
Oh, and as I watched him on the stage,
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in Hell
Could break that Satan's spell
And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died
That line says that the devil must have had something to do with music dying and how it was such a tragedy.
