Algún día tenía que suceder y ese día es hoy: ‘Rock Band’ llega a su fin. Concretamente finaliza el lanzamiento semanal de nuevos temas, puesto que los servidores del juego no van a desaparecer y Harmonix no tiene intención de dejar a todos los fans de la franquicia tirados —de hecho seguirán aplicando promociones dentro del catálogo existente—.

‘Rock Band’ ha sido y sigue siendo muy importante para Harmonix. Durante los algo más de cinco años de vida que tiene la franquicia hemos ido recibiendo nuevos temas semana tras semana (en total tenemos más de 4.000 temas de más de 1.300 artistas), canciones que no hacían sino engordar nuestra biblioteca musical y que nos han dado horas y horas de satisfacciones. Hoy recibimos la última de ellas. Se trata de ‘American Pie’, de Don McLean. Y desde Harmonix han querido interpretarla a modo de despedida y resumen de su historia:

‘American Pie’ habla sobre el accidente de avión conocido como The Day the Music Died (el día en que murió la música) que tuvo lugar el 3 de febrero de 1959. En él fallecieron los músicos Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens y J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson junto al piloto Roger Peterson. Y es imposible no emocionarse escuchando a McLean. Creo que en Harmonix han sabido elegir muy bien el tema para cerrar esta etapa. Echaremos de menos a ‘Rock Band’, pero seguiremos de cerca a Harmonix y sus nuevos proyectos. También iba tocando.

Os dejo de regalo un vídeo en directo del propio McLean interpretando ‘American Pie’ y justo debajo la letra del tema:

Don McLean - 'American Pie'

A long, long time ago I can still remember how that music used to make me smile And, I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance, and... Maybe they'd be happy for a while But, February made me shiver with every paper I'd deliver Bad news on the doorstep - I couldn't take one more step I can't remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride Something touched me deep inside the day the music died

So, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die

Did you write the Book of Love and do you have faith in God, above? If the Bible tells you so Now, do you believe in Rock and Roll? Can music save your mortal soul? And... Can you teach me how to dance real slow? Well, I know that you're in love with him, 'cause I saw you dancing in the gym You both kicked off your shoes - man, I dig those rhythm and blues I was a lonely, teenage broncin' buck with a pink carnation and a pickup truck, but... I knew I was out of luck the day the music died

I started singing, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die

Now, for ten years we've been on our own and moss grows fat on a Rolling Stone, but... That's not how it used to be When the Jester sang for the king and queen in a coat he borrowed from James Dean In a voice that came from you and me Oh, and while the King was looking down the Jester stole his thorny crown The courtroom was adjourned - no verdict was returned And, while Lenin read a book on Marx the quartet practiced in the park, and... We sang dirges in the dark the day the music died

We were singing, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die

Healter Skealter in the summer swelter - the Birds flew off with a fallout shelter Eight Miles High and falling fast It landed foul on the grass The players tried for a forward pass with the Jester on the sidelines in a cast Now, the halftime air was sweet perfume while the Sergeants played a marching tune We all got up to dance, oh, but we never got the chance 'Cause the players tried to take the field - the marching band refused to yield Do you recall what was revealed the day the music died?

We started singing, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die

And, there we were, all in one place - a generation Lost in Space With no time left to start again So, come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick - Jack Flash sat on a Candlestick, 'cause... Fire is the Devil's only friend 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

He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die

I met a girl who sang the Blues, and I asked her for some happy news She just smiled and turned away I went down to the sacred store where I'd heard the music years before, but... The man there said the music wouldn't play And, in the streets the children screamed, the lover's cried, and the poets dreamed, but... Not a word was spoken - the church bells all were broken And, the three men I admire most: the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, they... Caught the last train for the coast the day the music died

And, they were singing, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die

They were singing, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing... This'll be the day that I die
