And I'm glad to say that I was heavily influenced in my thinking and values by the best of what was intended.I agree with blind boy grunt's comment about Dylan's voice.Hi Music lovers, Aa I told you below last time, two things happening to him made him write a song, Like A Rolling Stone, in 1965.
There is more, another thing happening to him when he stayed in England 1965 was the another thing that made him finish writing it.
To be continued, Hi Music lovers, I think that the idea of the lyrics of the song, Like A Rolling Stone, in 1965 came from two things.
First one was a song sung by a famous singer at that time and the other one was not from a song, but something else happening in 1964 in England when he was there for his touring or in 1965 when he came back from England.
Those two things gave him a great inspiration and made him wrote 'like A Rolling Stone' in 1965 when he came back home from England for his touring.
At the time "Like A Rolling Stone" was at #6 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; eight days later on September 5th, 1965 it would peak at #2 ... He writes it so WE can relate to it in one way or another. To hear Bob Dylan's pain, it's just beautiful and authentic. The diplomat with the chrome Horse refers to Edie's Executive Father ,who sexually abused Her, hence "took from You everything He could steal) . Especially the ones stating that it's about a specific person.
The two weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for both those weeks was "Help! Edie fell for Dylan , who was already married, for reasons of propriety,or because she thought She fitted in well at The Factory. Dylan was bitter, The Taurean revenge were His acidic Lyrics. Songs like this one don't have "staying power" if they don't resonate with people and I don't think that most people think of Edie Sedgwick (whoever she is/was) or any other specific person when they think of or hear this song.
Anyone who does not think so has not done their homework, but it is easy enough to do, just see her bio in "Factory Girl".
Why Dylan wants to ignore his association with her will have to remain a mystery, but he did seriously try to stop the movie from being made.
( One has to take him at his word-for one generally can write tomes on what we know best - ourselves.) Once upon a time you dressed so fine You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you ?
( self-referential)People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"( folk music was on its way out givin over to rock and roll) You thought theywere all kiddin' you You used to laugh about Everybody that was hangin' out (likely the warhol crowd)Now you don't talk so loud (Eating humble pie after negative reaction to his using an electric guitar for the first time.) Now you don't seem so proud ( losing his fanbase) About having to be scrounging for your next meal.
While others gave up on the dream and succumbed to the "establishment" and capitalist way of life.
