Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
God don't make no promises that He don't keep

You got some big dreams, baby, but in order to dream you gotta still be asleep

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up

When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain?

"The Beatles and The Rolling Stones heard Bob Dylan and it changed them forever; all-time great singer-songwriters Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon all looked up to him; so do such new generation stars as Marcus Mumford, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Adele. You can even hear his cadences in hip hop, where he is the most venerated veteran white songwriter, name-checked by everyone from Jay Z to Kendrick Lamar."
