NFT: Dylan drops new song - Murder Most Foul

Searcher : 3/27/2020 8:56 am

Out of the blue - A song about the Kennedy assassination, the 60's, the 70's and who knows what else. Fascinating as always.

I was hoping for something more currently relevant
Thanks for posting

Really enjoyed it, transfixed the whole time. Pretty heavy song lyrically. I’ll dig into it more after work.
Just read the lyrics

Will make you cry.
I had doubts

I'm not a huuuge Dylan fan, but I found it pretty amazing. Just had it on in the background and the time flew by.

and it is very relevant to today.

Best then and now. Reminds us of it here. Mentions more than 70 songs by others along the way (which mostly you're sure to know), looking back.
Ok Boomer...

Just what the world needs now, a song about JFK. Dylan’s an odd cat man. Love him. Appreciate his music. Weird dude.
its not only about JFK  
Bill2 : 3/28/2020 9:56 pm : link
Its about calamity, turning points, the elite slinking off unpunished, its about loss, its about being observant to what is done in sudden bad times.

It echo's another old Dylan lyric: The executioners face is always well hidden

Its not a coincidence it comes out now
And yes

He is weird

Yeah, I don’t think the song is so great. Kind of seems like a really long and much slower take off of We Didn’t Start the Fire.
I liked it

Not really a song.

A spoken word piece with improvised musical background.

Kennedy is a metaphor, obviously and the meaning of the metaphor keeps changing.

All the musical name checking metaphors too. Sign posts in Dylan's life.

Piece made me a little sad to be honest. Feels kinda like Dylan's swan song.
