An untouched photograph is an accurate and often beautiful picture. A painting can be beautiful but can also be inaccurate. Same with songs. If you want accuracy, use text books. If you are more concerned with how it looks or sounds than how accurate it is leave the artist to it.

Nothing wrong with providing your own interpretation of course, everyone does it, but remember that your interpretation may not have the same meaning that the songwriter intended.

Just my 2p.
