Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
I seem to remember that "Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall" was written with every line as a possible song title, because it was at the time of the Cuba crisis when we all thought we might be heading for Armageddon, meaning BD wouldn't be able to write all those songs, so there wouldn't appear to be any long term agenda on that one.
Perhaps the fear we all felt at that time of nuclear confrontation may have accounted for the nature of the some of the writing at the time.
