Oggi è il compleanno di Bob Dylan, auguri Bob!

Today is Bob Dylan’s birthday, best wishes Bob!

Per meglio capire il mio rapporto con la musica di Bob Dylan vi rimando a questo mio post di 5 anni fa. E’ una storia di quando ero giovane.

To better understand my relationship with Bob Dylan’s music I refer you to this post of mine from 5 years ago. It’s a story from when I was young.

E’ difficile scegliere una canzone preferita, vi lascio con “When the ship comes in”  cantata al Live Aid di Philadelfia nel 1985 insieme a Keith Richard e Ron Wood che potete vedere ed ascoltare cliccando il link su Youtube e la versione in italiano della stessa canzone cantata da Vinicio Capossela.

It is difficult to choose a favorite song, I leave you with “When the ship comes in” sung at Live Aid in Philadelphia in 1985 with Keith Richard and Ron Wood which you can watch and listen on Youtube and the Italian version of the same song sung by Vinicio Capossela.

Testi in inglese ed italiano e un commento alla canzone a questo link al sito “Fabio’s Room“, a comment about the song and  english and italian lyrics following this link to “Fabio’s Room” site  : https://www.fabiosroom.eu/it/canzoni/when-the-ship-comes/

Per quanto riguarda il tema della barca è interessante sapere che secondo Suze Rotolo  Dylan è stato influenzato dalla canzone “Lied der Seeräuber-Jenny” contenuta nell’ “Opera da Tre Soldi” (1928) di Bertold Brecht e cantata da Lotte Lenya.

Regarding the boat theme, it is interesting to know that according to Suze Rotolo Dylan was influenced by the song “Lied der Seeräuber-Jenny” contained in the “Threepenny  Opera” (1928) by Bertold Brecht and sung by Lotte Lenya.

Bene, vi lascio con una foto, anche perchè questo è nato come blog fotografico. Come si rapporta questo dettaglio del mio studio con Bob Dylan o Bertold Brecht? Non lo so, l’ho scelta seguendo l’istinto. Se avete commenti, pensieri,  idee o critiche costruttive sapete che fanno sempre piacere! Ora godetevi i video!

Well, I’ll leave you with a photo, partly because this started out as a photo blog. How does this detail of my studio relate to Bob Dylan or Bertold Brecht? I don’t know, I chose it by instinct. If you have any comments, thoughts, ideas or constructive criticism you know they are always appreciated! Now enjoy the videos!

  1. His Bobness is 80?
    Where has the time gone? It seems like only recently I posted a forum thread elsewhere about his 70th birthday!

    Robert, I enjoy seeing your photographs, thank you for sharing them with us!:)

  2. Uncle Bob never conforms to anyone’s taste. Which I like. Nevertheless, I started to lose interested in his albums after he got saved. That was only three albums in the end, but personally I feel like the quality has fallen over the years, with occasionally great albums in between. But then, the last one, just surprised completely and positively. It’s hard to pick a favourite album, but maybe Blood on the Tracks or Desire.

    • I agree on Desire. Of course it must be difficult, almost impossible to stay at the top for so many decades!
      I generally like his music, sometimes more sometimes less. Same for different pieces, I do not appreciate all of them in the same way.
      You are correct, the last one was a real surprise. Thanks for the comment, appreciated

  3. i’m not a big fan of bob, is he still alive?
    however, i’m a big fan of your office and it’s pictures xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
