Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
999, I hear the third-from-last line in "Every Grain of Sand" as "Of a perfect, finished plan". Picky, I know.
What small-minded shriveled-heart cretin is it who can not say "I love the music I love" but has to say "the music you love is HORRIBLE!"
Sorry, but this sort of rant usually is barked out by insane, stupid people. It also is the major reason why I haven't felt inspired by music. It's not the music's fault, but it's hard to be around people who will be offended if I sing (or even praise) something they don't like. This is my problem, and believe me, it's a problem because I like both songwriters.
You may prefer one of them.
You may dislike one of them.
Both are/were masters of their craft.
Disagree if you like, but be aware that your attitude may actually turn people away--NOT because you don't like what they like but because you seem to believe their preferences are less valid than yours. If you treat music as a fundamentalist religion, this may work for you.
...whoever "you" may be.
