so many great songs--'Blowin in the Wind--how many miles must a man walk down before he can call himself a man'---some don't walk far enough or find the right roads.
I love 'Tangled Up in Blue'.
I went to the recycled music store and found a set of 3 Joan Baez cd's for a good price. what a beautiful voice and what profound lyrics that woman has written.
i googled her. dylan and baez were in a relationship for a while. must have inspired each other--parted ways.
they did a duet on one CD. very nice.
he has a son, Jakob---interesting to hear his music. His own person of course--but definitely his father's son.
without such people the world would really be in a mess.
I don't think the same will be said for Lady Gaga. don't think i have ever heard one of her songs. just not interested--she can wear meat and whatever else she wants. hailed as the next 'Madonna'--as if that were something good.
i was teaching 5th graders when Madonna came on the scene---i would say she made a very negative contribution to society --around 1982.
now we have address the 'issue' of bullying---things started to go south in the Reagan years---corporate boom years, whatever anyone else may think--I know how we got to this low point. exactly how it happened.
turning back a bit. there is now a genre of Christian heavy metal--probably Christian rap. i don't care to know.
just listen to Bob Dylan and others like him.
that is what i am going to do--others can do as they please.
