The lyrics to MacArthur Park infuriate some people. But everything in the song is real. But as a metaphor for a losing a chapter of your life, it seemed too good to be true.
So many songs about Delaware… NOT! Easter is a time of rebirth and eggs are a symbol of fertility. Also, the bizarre line in MacArthur Park about the cake being left out in the rain probably made me think of Simnel cake, traditional at this time of the year. The song MacArthur Park , written and composed by Jimmy Webb, was first recorded by Richard Harris in but my favourite version was the one by Donna Summer from

Rob Reiner named his movie "Stand By Me" after the song, since he thought The Body, a Stephen King story on which it was based, sounded like a horror movie. It was 1 in England and America. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
Richard Harris was the first to record it in ; his version peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot chart and number four on the UK Singles Chart. In , producer Bones Howe had asked Webb to create a pop song with classical elements, different movements and changing time signatures. Webb delivered "MacArthur Park" to Howe with "everything he wanted", but Howe did not care for the ambitious arrangement or unorthodox lyrics and the song was rejected by the group The Association , for whom it was originally intended. Webb initially brought the entire cantata to The Association , but the group rejected it. In an interview with Newsday in October , Webb explained:. Everything in the song was visible. There's nothing in it that's fabricated. The old men playing checkers by the trees, the cake that was left out in the rain, all of the things that are talked about in the song are things I actually saw. And so it's a kind of musical collage of this whole love affair that kind of went down in MacArthur Park. Back then, I was kind of like an emotional machine, like whatever was going on inside me would bubble out of the piano and onto paper.
