Thread Name: The Bob Dylan Mystique
Subject: RE: The Bob Dylan Mystique
I sang at a friend's fortieth recently - all non-folkies present wasn't sure how to handle it so I did 'May you stay forever young' as it felt appropriate and like a kind of gift for my friend. People were 'amazed and surprised' to find it was bob dylan - I think he's brilliant.

Oh and something else - Andrew Motion - The poet laureate, claims that Dylan is one of the very few 'modern' song writers to write genuine poetry. I'm not sure about that but some of his songs, heard at the right time and in the right place, have moved me to tears.
