Bob Dylan Fanclub 2010-11-16 20:32:12
I searched through topics and couldn't find one about the poetic knight of America, so I figured I'd make one. For all Bob Dylan fans this is your place to discuss!
General Topics of Discussion
1. Favorite Songs - Seems like an easy question. Say what your favorite songs are by Dylan. Elaborate on why you like them, whether it be the lyrics, instruments, etc. This can also be transitioned into favorite album or something like that.
2. Influence on You - Personal I've always loved Dylan's songs since almost every one of them has a memory associated with it, along with most of them telling a great story. Has Dylan affected you in anyway? If so, share! It's a great topic to discuss!
3. Ever Seen Him Live? - I had the pleasure of seeing him live once and he blew me away. If anyone else has seen him live, tell us about it. Talk about the set list, overall experience, etc.
Most topics should be okay, there's much to discuss. I also don't think this belongs in the classic rock club because I always considered Dylan as more of a folk artist but if this breaks the rules IU apologize.
Also (dare I need to say it), no trolling or simple posting saying how you dislike him. Frankly, we just don't care. Your argument is invalid and will be ignored.
To start some talk, I'll post some of my favorites. Feel free to reply to any of them and let;s get things rolling!
My favorite songs are difficult to choose, like picking one of my children ;], but a few of my favorites are Visions of Johanna, Subterranean Homesick Blues, She Belongs to Me, Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat, Ballad of a Thin Man, All Along the Watchtower, Like a Rolling Stone, Bob Dylan's 115th Dream, Absolutely Sweet Marie, Simple Twist of Fate, Mississippi, and Highway 61 Revisited.
My favorite album is probably Bringing It All Back Home, closely followed by Blonde on Blonde.
Also, I have a collection of him on last.fm, so add me if you wish and check out my selection. Here's my account.
