Bob Dylan

Post by gnome »

I usually dislike Bob Dylan's voice, but concede the songwriting skills.

"Tangled Up In Blue" has been stuck in my head lately and now I feel like his voice works best for it.



Anyone else have a singer they don't usually care for but they have to be the one to sing certain songs?

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Bob [Dylan] is not authentic at all. He’s a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception. We are like night and day, he and I.

Bob is a palindrome.

On a related note, one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs is a Weird Al Yankovic tribute in which all of the lyrics are palindromes. It's one of the cleverest things I've ever seen.

And just for good measure, I'm sure you all know it of course, but I'm partial to this one:

Because he can't carry a fucking tune, he sings off-key, and his timing sucks.

It's not just the singing or the timing. The arrangements suck donkey balls as well.

I dont get it.



Ok, Copeland can't sing either.

It's the message. He used to be in my top 20 when I was in my naive 20's. I can probably play a half dozen of his tunes on my git-box from memory.

My son is now in has twenties and his garage band does several covers (another story there). The chords are easy, the melodies symbol simple. I wasn't dissin' on the Bob.

The message, maybe. In the UK Its not really relevant. As much as fans want it to be.

Like you guys liking the Clash. You dont get it. No really, you dont.

This is reminding me of the argument about Jimi Hendrix in White Men Can't Jump
Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes): Heeeyy, what is this.
Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson): Jimi Hendrix.
Deane: Oh I know who it is, but why are you playing Jimi?
Hoyle: Because I like to listen to Jimi.
Deane: Oh you like to listen. That’s what the fucking problem is — y’all listen.
Hoyle: What am I supposed to do, eat it?
Deane: No, no, no you’re supposed to hear it.
Hoyle: I just said I like to listen to it.
Deane: No, no, no there’s a difference between hearing and listening to it. You see, white people, y’all can’t hear Jimi. Y’all listen.
Gloria Clemente (Rosie Perez): What are you talking about? His drummer was white!
Hoyle: Ooooooooooooooooh!
Deane: Fuck outta here, Jimi Hendrix’s drummer was not white.
Clemente: Yes he did. Yo, check it out. See?
Deane: This is a picture!
Hoyle: His whole damn band is white!
Deane: This is a picture…some air-brushed bullshit. Jimi Hendrix did not have a white rhythm section. You cannot hear Jimi.
