Eh. I still think it’s a song.
I've been a Dylan fan now for about 45 years. Loved all his different eras (except the born again phase), but especially his 60s output up to and including Blood On The Tracks. Loved, loved, loved Time Out Of Mind and the following 3 or 4 albums.
Gotta say, though, that I bailed on this one at the 2 minute mark. Not a topic that I find interesting anymore and even I have to admit that Bob's voice is wrecked. Oh well....
A lot of great post's here!
I want to thank everybody!
I too feel that Bob is making some sort of final statement.
I also wonder if the Kennedy Assasination was the day the dam (and dream) broke.
At least one guy gets it. "Murder Most Foul" certainly is a masterpiece and a very eloquent and timely eulogy. The piece works on many levels. The simple level is a eulogy for JFK. On a deeper level, it is a eulogy for something that's dying but not quite dead yet. It's a eulogy for all of us and what we could become except for the hate hidden just beneath the surface. And more disturbing than that is that if we dive deep enough, we'd be likely find ourselves... running out of air.
Yes, well said.
I think the reports of our death are greatly exaggerated.
If you want someone to write our eulogy, maybe don't pick an aging superstar hermit who doesn't know his mailman's name let alone what's in the heart of the rest of us. People are still wonderful, awful too, and mostly good. Just like they were this time last year, this time last century. ...Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.
I don't think this song does much more than scratch an itch for some people. I liked the music, though.
Do I smell fish ?
Bob Dylan's Greatest Song? Obviously the vote is diversified. Too many great songs and too many fences to cross. But is it a great song? I couldn't stop listening to it and made it my own Eulogy of America today. I just want to digest it for a while before I listen to it again. Thanks for sharing.
It’s a lot better than I thought it would be, and didn’t feel like it dragged on when I listened to it. Sounds like a Tempest song. I’m not sure what his best song is but the stuff on Love and Theft and Modern Times is up there for me.
Heres another Dylan poem that I like
Great? Good? Neither .... Bob Zimmerman sings the Wikipedia page of the 60's. Dylan is as irrelevant as the 60's, he just hasn't "woke" yet.
It's an interesting song...pretty rambling and not "great" lyrically imo...not Dylan's greatest song!
