I said you could say that. To be honest I don't care that much,I was just saying you can always have a debate/discussion about music as everyone has different taste. You don't seem to be able to discuss anything without either putting in a load of swearing or being generally unpleasant.So you now think All along The Watchtower, Like A Rolling Stone, Blowin In The Wind, A Hard Rain Is Gonna Fall, She Belongs To Me, Just Like A Woman, It's Alright Ma, Maggies Farm, and Mr Tambourine Man, plus hundreds of others were merely " money making " songs?
Are you fucking sure?
Sorry mate, but I would say you a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off the mark here. Not about Bluesman needing to have a look at himself thoughHe is. He's a great lyricist but putting out a song is a lot more than penning lyrics, his musical arrangements and voice are crap, and before you go calling any one in here a moron, perhaps have good look at yourself with your need to abuse and insult every one you try and communicate with on here.
I know there is but i can;t see how they are so popular, ill give them props for influence and sales and everything but i just don;t see how so many people like there music.There is a difference between not liking an artist, but still recognizing their talent/influence/greatness and calling them a "shite boyband" for example.
Well, I have to concede that Bluesman made some salient points in his reply to me, and in another post he made after mine, nice to see he returned to the conversation/debate in such a way. I agree with what he wrote, to be fair, Dylan's a great songwriter (I can't stand him as a performer though), as for the question of who's the greatest? Well that's an unanswerable, very subjective questionSorry mate, but I would say you a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off the mark here. Not about Bluesman needing to have a look at himself though
I think he has a certain quirkiness and wit to his lyrics but by no means do I think he is the greatest lyricist of all time or anywhere near there.Funny how divisive Morrisy is as a lyricist, a few on here (my self included) think his lyrics are a load of wank and then others, such as Strike, see brilliance in them.
