What Dylan Is Not - Poet Laureate of the left, for one.
The Weekly Standatd ^ | October 2, 2006 | SEAN CURNYN

Posted on 05/26/2014 5:21:04 AM PDT by don-o

Somehow, after over 40 years of evidence to the contrary, much of the world seems to continue to expect the man who is arguably America's greatest songwriter to sign on to left/liberal causes at the first opportunity. If nothing else, it is proof that in attempting to kidnap Dylan's songs (in Dylan's own words, his songs were "subverted into polemics" in the 1960s), the left succeeded in convincing the average person that both the work and the man did, indeed, belong to them.

In the summer run-up to the 2004 presidential campaign, a concert tour of anti-Bush musicians was being organized, led by Bruce Springsteen. They would perform in swing states in support of John Kerry. The advance press regarding the tour always prominently mentioned Bob Dylan as one of the musicians being talked about for the lineup. There was no surprise about this expressed in the stories; after all, campaigning against Republican presidents is what Bob Dylan has always done, isn't it? But when dates and lineups were finally announced for the "Vote for Change" tour, one name was prominently missing: that of Bob Dylan. And indeed, any scrutiny of the record would show that he has never endorsed a political candidate (although some political candidates have endorsed him). The closest he has ever come would be the statement in his memoir, Chronicles, that his "favorite politician" circa 1961 was Barry Goldwater.

Love Dylan. Not everything he does is gold, but when he DOES succeed, it is awesome.

Looking forward to his album of Sinatra covers.

Dylan is a truly great artist.

And it just goes to show -- if the Left likes you and thinks they can make some use out of you then -- SHAZAAM! -- you get branded as a Leftist hero. They claim you and benefit from you, whether you like it or not.

And if the Left hates someone or something, then that thing is (by definition) "right wing". The Stalinists did not like the National Socialist Workers Party of Germany, and -- voila! -- the Nazis became "right wing".

These guys just don’t always fall into the slots the left likes to put them into.

Bed of Procrustes — the Left manages to fit everything into their grand utopian scheme, no matter how tortured it may be.

“Disease Of Conceit”

There’s a whole lot of people suffering tonight from the disease of conceit
Whole lot of people struggling tonight from the disease of conceit
Comes right down the highway straight down the line
Rips into your senses through your body and your mind
Nothing about it that’s sweet
The disease of conceit.

There’s a whole lot of hearts breaking tonight from the disease of conceit
Whole lot of hearts shaking tonight from the disease of conceit
Steps into your room eats into your soul
Over your senses you have no control
Ain’t nothing too discreet about the disease of conceit.

There’s a whole lot of people dying tonight from the disease of conceit
Whole lot of people crying tonight from the disease of conceit
Comes right out of nowhere and you’re down for the count
From the outside world the pressure will mount
Turn you into a piece of meat
The disease of conceit.

Conceit is the disease that the doctors got no cure
They’ve done a lot of research on it but what it is they’re still not sure

There’s a whole lot of people in trouble tonight from the disease of conceit
Whole lot of people seeing double tonight from the disease of conceit
Give you delusions of grandeur and evil eye
Give you the idea that you’re too good to die
Then they bury you from your head to your feet
From the disease of conceit.

“The answer my friend is blowing in the wind....”

Politically Dylan was always anti-establishment.

Dylan was Tea Party before the Tea Party.

Dylan was the 20th century equivalent of a stoic philosopher.

A while back I read some BS about Jimi Hendrix being anti war because he was just one more black man forced to fight the white man's war. Its was completely false but its what the left wanted to believe.

Today there are guys like Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine who refuses to tour with anti Christian groups and said he really liked the solid pro life pro traditional marriage stance of Rick Santorum. He didn't love Bush but that was an anti globalist sentiment. He even had an album called "United Abominations".

He's also no fan of unions.

I can talk all day about him.

He once said that the greatest American Poet was Smokey Robinson, which might be true, but undoubtedly when you look at the work of Dylan his our greatest Poet.

His songs were not widely accepted until other artists did them, in fact, it’s hard to listen to Dylan and accept his voice as musical. Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Ian & Sylvia, Peter, Paul and Mary all hung out with him and did his songs. They spoke of how much they “hated” him, in a loving way, because he was just that good at writing songs.

Having said that, I think he was clearly anti-war in the 60s. I’m not sure if he still Christian, but I think he is.

Very private man, and I love his interviews on youtube. People trying to paint him.

His latest albums grow on you.

Dylan has always been his own person. Take him or leave him, he doesn’t care if it fits your stereotype.

Every single interview I have ever heard or read, Dylan answers questions that the reporter does not ask. Drives folks nuts.

Mr G worked with him one time. He was not a fan of his before, but when Bob got on stage and started singing, Mr G said there was no mistaking that “aura” of greatness. He didn’t know what it was, just that there was a “magic” about his performance. And Mr. G is not easily impressed!

That said, he also worked with Bob’s son one time. He was a pain in the patootie.

Pretty much album Dylan ever put out is great, with the possible exception of that Christmas album a few years back. Even the much-maligned "Self-Portrait" album, that many assumed was a joke, yielded up some good things.

I actually think his recent work (post 1990) are better than most of his 1960s albums.

I like how he always snubbed the dirty, smelly hippies and yet like a jilted woman, they keep coming back for more abuse.

Tangled up in Blue is one alltime favorites. I also love the Mountain Dew version with Johhny Cash. And many, many more...

this was a take on Subterranean homesick blues...some would say, in the early 60s, that Dylan was sophomoric.

http://www.myplay.com/videos/bob-dylan/subterranean-homesick-blues

watch the video.... (Homo pedophile and marxist Alan Ginsberg is in the background....weird Al used a look alike Ginsberg ) not a big fan of Yankovich...but this and a few takes on rap, are pretty good.

Tangled is A+ but I love love love Dylan - there’s a great song for every topic, every issue. I seem to always go to Hattie Carroll and Masters of War.....with a good dose of Davey Moore thrown in too....

I travel Highway 61 in Minnesota weekly and every time I’m on that road “Desolation Row” begins playing in my head. I guess you could say it’s become my theme song.

Which really goes to show above all else that the less you know about any artist the better.

I used to like Ed Asner and even Jane Fonda’s work until I learned of their politics, now I wouldn’t walk across the street to see their work.

I try to not listen to the liberal ramblings of Harrison Ford and GEorge Clooney, esp the latter, because I like their movies, but it gets harder every year. Ford is turning into the poster child for exlax in the elderly.

I think Dylan tries not to be identified with anyone, and by that is embraced by every one. Kinda like the current Pope.

Dylan’s recent album is really great, I think it’s just about all New Orleans sounding. Genius, absolute genius.

I have heard a few clips from his most recent tour in Japan. Elegant ensemble, restrained instrumental work, does have a somewhat jazz vibe - yet another presentation of his art.

His songs were not widely accepted until other artists did them..

I can't conceive any other voice doing "Desolation Row".

Maybe he will do a song on Jerusalem sometime as part of his continual spiritual journey between the Jewish / Christian he has traveled throughout his lifetime.

Some of his later songs only he can do, but when he was starting out, you couldn’t hear the beauty in the song until people like Baez and others did them. Only he can do “Like a Rolling Stone”.

At this moment I have a “Theme Time Radio Hour” streaming. Replying to a question about small arms from an Army staff sgt, Bob is giving detailed instruction on how to fire a cannon. Then plays Van Morrison “Straight to Your Heart - Like a Cannonball.”

I like Dylan, but I wouldn’t go that far. Some of his stuff is a bit ponderous, imo....”Good As I Been To You” and “World Gone Wrong” I could never wrap my head around....and the one time I saw him live (right around Memorial Day, as a matter of fact, many years ago), it was awful.

I grew up knowing songs and melodies but Dylan, I discovered, does not play the song like the record. For me, it was a disappointment.

What has pisses the lefties off most is Dylan’s deeply pro Israel position.

This pisses the Left off now, but in the 60's it didn't necessarily do this. Many New Left figures were pro-Israel (seeing Israel as a socialist state in the "reactionary" Middle East), though others (such as the Black Panthers) were fanatically anti-Israel.

As recently as the 1982 Lebanon War (under right wing PM Menachem Begin) Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden entertained Israeli soldiers involved in the conflict.

The hard Left internationally was almost always (except for a brief period in the late 40's) anti-Israel, but for some reason the American hard Left was an exception. I'm not quite sure why, but I'm sure this would not have been so had Moscow not wanted it that way.

“And now for an aficionado of golf and guillotines...”

And then Dylan starts playing Alice Cooper for the school themed show. Pretty cool.

They say that no two Dylan concerts are alike. That's why Dylan bootlegs have been so consistently popular. Each concert is unique with the songs being interpreted in a different way. In my opinion, it's the mark of a true artist. I find that bands who keep to a tight set list and play the songs in the same order the same way night after night are boring.

One time, I saw Garth Brooks twice on the same tour, back in the early 1990s when he was really big. I saw him in Maryland while on vacation and then in Worcester, MA about a week later. The second time was a waste of money. Every song played exactly the same way in the same order. Even the banter between songs was the exact same which really disillusioned me. I thought at least that would be spontaneous and specific to the audience at hand.

On the subject of Dylan, a lot is made of his nasal gravelly voice and how it is not "professional" singing. I think that adds some authenticity to his performances. Other artists like Neil Young, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen perform the same way. Not polished at all with their vocals but somehow that makes them more genuine and worth paying the money to go see.

I agree.... If the world could only have one musical artist... in my book it would have to be Bob Dylan. No one writes a song like Bob Dylan, and no one “delivers” a song vocally like Bob Dylan. There are impersonators, but he is the real deal.

Nobody owns Bob but Bob. He’s not a tool of the left or the right or the hawks or the doves or the feminists or the hippies or the straights or anybody else. He’s a genius, an American original and a timeless artist. Five hundred years from now, Dylan will be known and taught like Shakespeare is today.
