Good isn't it?
Its all over now Baby Blue
album in my humble opinion
what do you raise me?
it's certainly up there
i prefer highway.
but its fucking ace, I'm hungry for more.
Highway 61 Revisited is better. Though 'those-era' albums of acoustic-electric transition are best.
But it's unbelievable. I love it so much.
I prefer Highway 61, Blood On The Tracks, The Freewheelin', and Blonde On Blonde... probably.
But I prefer Blood on the Tracks a bit more.
what about 'Bob Dylan's 115th Dream'?
Surely his best song ever?
i can't emphasise that sentence enough to reveal how much i mean it.
about the last five I have got a Bob Dylan book. I'm thinking about going on MAstermind. I can emhasise how much I love him. I love Him.
than I love you
Seriously though. People will study him like Shakespeare
but they should.
i had a 43 minute debate in one of my english masters seminars with some mature student woman who claimed that his words were good but he ruined them with the singing. i argued that the performance and the words were completely linked and could not be separated, and continued to do so for far far longer than anyone else cared to. oh well.
me and my girlfriend were discussing poetry and music the other day. The phrasing of words is SO important. The words themselves are great but do no justice to how they come out. Having said that I'm going to contradict myself and say that sometimes I prefer covers of his songs - but they tend to be the more simple ones - see Nico's version of 'I'll Keep It With Mine'.
But yes phraseology is important.
Now I'm doing a you
is always recommended
As we speak I'm writing an essay on the interpretation of Dylan's lyrics as poetry . I'm comparing him to the beat poets and people like Frank O'Hara. And also Leonard Cohen a little bit.
Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie is actually incredible. It gives me that goosebump feeling that bits in songs give you. But instead of one bit it's every other line.
I'll probably get a shit mark for it because I haven't actually checked if it's ok to write about him and also I keep going off on a tangent and ignoring the point of the essay. But I don't care because I LOVE him.
I'm even listening to Dylan and the Dead while I'm doing this...
I had a break an hour ago and detuned my guitar to open e and played the first half of blood on the tracks instead of eating. Seriously I win.
One is responsible for my existence, the other is resonsible for Dylan's.
I still win! I think?
dylan got his name from a tv cowboy.
p0WNED! blood on your tracks biatch!
it was in two of the recent books i read about him, including i believe the greil marcus rolling stone one, and he knows more about dylan than dylan does.
he lies in interviews just for the sake of it anyway. Although it's a pretty well-establish viewpoint that his name came from Dylan Thomas. Who is this cowboy guy then? I like him already...
later to seem cooler. there was some sidekick cowboy on a 40s tv show that he watched every week and dressed up as apparently. i forget the exact details
