Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
When Kenny Rogers and Lionel Richie were recording, Lionel pointed out a few notes off key that were wrong.
Kenny pointed out that they were not only right, but the emotion was carried almost exclusively by them.

Now leap forward and apply that to the lyrics. What the vituperative of this parish dislike is what IMNSHO is the thing that carries the emotion of the lyric. Its raison dêtre.

Beware "confirmation bias". dislike and bad can be close friends. And the opposite of course.

FWIW I like Dylan's affect on a generation. But as a poet/singer/wrongciter I can only marvel at the man's skill.
