Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
I have never said i do not like Dylan, whast i have asked for is some kind of serious response to explain some of his lyrics in some of his poorer songs, in order to justify the award,
a result of which I have been subjected to a personal attack from a moderator of this forum, my opinion is that when someone resorts to insults they have lost the argument. .
TimR, I happen to like Masters of War, and AT LEAST three other songs that i think are catchy pop songs, but I do not think it justifies the award.
no one   has been able to explain the lyrics of farewell angelina and some others that i have mentioned. wiggle, like a rolling stone, ballad in plain d, hattie carroll, farewellangelina, either have an unclear message, or are badly written from a technical point of view or have an unimaginative approach,poor rhyming, bad meter, bad grammar that renders the meaning ridiculous[ eg hattie carroll double negatives]
