|What About Bob?
The year was 1963, and a young folk singer from Hibbing Minnesota was already being referred to as the voice of his generation. It's rumoured that former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara regarded him as the individual most responsible for the end of the Vietnam war.
The words of "Masters of War" are a bitter commentary on the military-industrial complex's influence on world affairs. Sadly, the song remains relevant to this day. Unfortunately, Bob Dylan has drifted off into obscurity. His last claim to fame was appearing in a Victoria's Secret commercial in 2003. While I have nothing against quality lingerie, selling bras and panties is a far cry from burning draft cards. Selling silk teddies ain't exactly stikin' it to the man.
We need the idealistic songwriter who gave us these lyrics:
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul
