I always have Bob Dylan playing either in the car, on my phone or on vinyl. He’s the best to listen to, his songs have such vivid imagery and descriptive and often vague references. Dylan has been at the forefront of change in music as well as society for over 60 years now.
There’s been 2 songs in particular the past few months that I just can’t help but play over and over. They’re just sticking with me and the lyrics are so beautiful and mysterious. The 2 songs in particular are Sara & Simple twist of fate take 3a.
Simple twist of fate take 3a
Bob Dylan is the greatest talent in music. The best singer / songwriter of the 20th century. To me there’s music, there’s genres of music; Rock, Pop, Rap, R&B and then there’s Bob Dylan. He’s defined himself as a style as a genre. His voice is instantly recognisable as Dylan.
Both songs are songs around love and of course loss also. The best thing that a song and a singer or group can do is to tell a story through their words. Bob Dylan has always had an ability to paint a picture with his words.
I feel relaxed, inspired and the weight of the words he chooses to use. If you’ve not heard any of these songs try them out and give a listen to. I give them both.
