Are there really people on the planet who don't like Bobbie?

Can anyone who doesn't explain why you can't enjoy the greatest lyricist of the last century.

Because now the only reason I can think of is try hard contrarianism.

Why do people pretend Bob Dylan had good lyrics?
>>
>>73454212
His voice.
>>73454233
It's 50% of the song. To ignore them is to ignore literally half of the song. Incorrect way to judge art.
>>
>>73454212
I like bobbie, but really Leo is the superior thinking mans poetry set to music. For example, Leo never wrote vapid appeals for hipster and freak cred such as Balad of A Thin Man
>>
bob dylan sucks
>>
>>73454261
Yes, yes. Of course, Nick Drake was a far better lyricist than both and could actually play guitar.
>>
>>73454282
Drake was the superior guitarist ill only give you that
>>
>>73454259
You sound like an art professional anon. You really must know what ur talking about
>>
>>73454258
Post some of your favorite lyrics so I can compare them to Dylan's and then we can all laugh at you
>>
>>73454282
Nick Drake wrote too many songs whining about why couldnt he get fame and bitches when he was such a good boy, see e.g. Fruit Tree.
>>
>>73454297
Not him but clearly the person who's only argument in this thread is a green texted meme really stands out as the art expert.

>>73454311
Literally that's not even what fruit trees about but name one other one.
>>
I really genuinely can't stand his fucking voice
>>
>>73454302
"Dancing a jig in the church with chimes, a sign of the times today
Hearing no bell from a steeple tall, people all in dismay
Falling so far on a silver spoon, making the moon for fun
Changing a robe for a size too small, people all get hung"

"When I am on a pedestal,
You did not raise me there.
Your laws do not compel me
To kneel grotesque and bare.
I myself am the pedestal
For this ugly hump at which you stare"

"Down to the bus
Into the town
Our poor boy can't get around
Eight fifty-five
Down at the show
She leaves early
He'll never know
'Cause our poor boy
Believes in chance
He'll never get the modern dance
Under the door there's an eye on the place
He watches for the shadows race
Watch real close
Look real fast
He's in touch
It'll never last
'Cause our poor boy
Believes in chance
He'll never get the modern dance"

>Unironically claiming cave has good lyrics

>>73454258
I couldn't stand their attitude for another day
They were trying to synchronize me so I blew them away
My daddy was a bitch he screwed around with my dog and cat
My mommy satisfied her thirst with a bag of urine

I kinda liked my sisters friends
Keep em fresh in the fridge
Murdered the bitch with a baseball bat
She was only five wadda ya think of that

I knocked her down the basement stairs
Then I burned off all her hair
Mutilated her virgin body
My mommy caught me and she tried to stop me

I killed mommy with my automatic

Oh boy... that's embarrassing.
>>
>>73454327
It's a bitter song about fame by a guy who it is well documented was very bitter at the fact that people had told him he was very talented and yet his records were never successful. I still like his music though, including his lyrics. But some of it is pouty whimpers from a little boy who didnt get a pat on the head.
>>
>>73454282
>Nick Drake was a far better lyricist than both and could actually play guitar.
But Dylan could play guitar.
>>73454297
You said it not me

Let me know when you have an actual argument
>>
>>73454390
That's like saying anyone listened to hallelujah before Jeff
>>
>>73454401
Fuck off, dude. The guy was schizophrenic and of course we need a big strong improver of society to come in and mock his slandering of life as if he has any understanding of his reality.
>>
>>73454411
That's like saying Jeff Buckley wrote the lyrics of Hallelujah because you haven't listened to a lot of music.
>>
>>73454258
I dont know, Idiot Wind is pretty good guy, especially the opening verse

They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
I can’t help it if I’m lucky
>>
>>73454439
>He used it in his album
It doesn't matter if he wrote it it's his lyrics
>>
Many people don't like his voice. Or reading into lyrics.
>>
>>73454457
Nick Cave didn't write Avalanche, dude.
>>
>>73454355
That's not even good Drake lyrics
>>
>>73454473
??? Do you have reading comprehension
>>
>>73454425
Yes, let's all feel compelled to praise his less stellar output because he had a hard time
>>
really bad, to like bob dylan is to hate creativity in music
>>
>>73454485
Not him but you've yet to name one song like this besides fruit tree which is pretty universally considered one of his weaker songs
>>
>>73454485
Yes, let's all act superior to someone and belittle them with 21st century le red pill materialism because they had a serious mental illness.
I can't wait for the nuclear holocaust to consume everything.
>>
>>73454387
>>73454355
I bet you voted for May

I love Nick Drake so much but >>73454401 isn't wrong, although I guess all you can do is write from your own experience and that's what he mostly did. I don't listen to Nick Drake for his lyrics, though, he was foremost a master songwriter even if he did sort of create the "sensitive bard" singer-songwriter aesthetic
>>
>>73454496
Hanging On A Star then. I kind of like the song, but the lyrics - sparse as they are - seem to again be about the fact that people at some point admired some of his mad skillz and now his life is shit...

what are you even talking about
>>
>>73454590
whos may?
>>
>>73454603
No, it's clearly an "other" speaking to the narrator asking why he refuses to go after what he dreams of. In Nick Drake's lyrics, stars are always representative of fantasy and dreams.
>>
>>73454425
Because patronizing the mentally ill as completely unaware drones is exactly what they want.
>>
>>73454259
It's pretty strange to assume that lyrics and sound carry equal weight in music.
>>
>>73454684
Good thing nobody itt is doing that then.
>>
>>73454611

typical bob dylan fans

He's neutral to me. I think better question is that are there really people on the planet who hate Bobbie
>>
>>73454663
Maybe. This was among the last ones he wrote and all the other of the same time seems to be about death, so I dont know what dreams and ambitions he was still entertaining at that point..
>>
>>73454805
Typical britbong
>>
>>73454781
Not really. That's the legal definition of a song. Look it up.
>>
>>73454355
Stop pretending to be me

YO, UH-HUH, YEAH, UH-HUH

I used to mock this guy by singing along with his songs in a really obnoxious nasally voice.
>>
>>73455336
So are songs without lyrics deficient or imbalanced?
>>
He has this smug aura which repels me from listening to him
>>
>>73455690
GN'Rs version is better
