Bob Dylan is an American singer, songwriter, author, and artist who has been an influential figure in music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s. When he became a reluctant “voice of a generation” with songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin'” which became anthems for the Civil Rights Movement and the anti-war movement. In 1965, he controversially “went electric”, branching out from his earlier work and alienating some fans of the American folk music revival, recording a six-minute single, “Like a Rolling Stone,” which enlarged the scope of popular music.

Dylan’s lyrics incorporate a wide range of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences.  – Source Bob Dylan Wikipedia

 

His most famous Song is:

Blowin in the Wind:

How many roads must a man walk down,
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail,
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly,
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind,
The answer is blowing in the wind.

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist,
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist,
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head,
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind,
The answer is blowing in the wind.

Yes, and how many times must a man look up,
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have,
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’til he knows,
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind,
The answer is blowing in the wind.

 

 

2. John Lennon

Lennon

 

John Lennon was an English singer, songwriter, and peace activist who co-founded the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He and fellow member Paul McCartney formed a much-celebrated songwriting partnership. Along with George Harrison and Ringo Starr, the group would ascend to worldwide fame during the 1960s.

He was born as John Winston Lennon in Liverpool, where he became involved in the skiffle craze as a teenager. In 1957, he formed his first band, the Quarrymen, which evolved into the Beatles in 1960.

Lennon began to record as a solo artist before the band’s break-up in April 1970; two of those songs were “Give Peace a Chance” and “Instant Karma!” Lennon subsequently produced albums that included John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, and songs such as “Working Class Hero”, “Imagine” and “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”. After he married Yoko Ono in 1969, he added “Ono” as one of his middle names.

Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to raise his infant son Sean but re-emerged with Ono in 1980 with the album Double Fantasy. He was shot and killed in the archway of his Manhattan apartment building three weeks after the album was released.

 

John Lennon’s most famous Song: Imagine

 

Imagine there’s no heaven,
It’s easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us, only sky,
Imagine all the people living for today,
Imagine there’s no countries,
It isn’t hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
And no religion, too,
Imagine all the people living life in peace,
You…

You may say I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one,
I hope someday you’ll join us,
And the world will be as one.

Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people sharing all the world.

You may say I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one,
I hope someday you’ll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Paul McCartney’s one of the famous Lyrics: Maybe I’m Amazed

 

Baby, I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time,
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you,
Baby, I’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time,
And hung me on a line,
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you.

Baby, I’m a man and maybe I’m a lonely man,
Who’s in the middle of something,
That he doesn’t really understand,
Baby, I’m a man and maybe you’re the only woman,
Who could ever help me,
Baby, won’t you help me to understand?

Baby, I’m a man and maybe I’m a lonely man,
Who’s in the middle of something,
That he doesn’t really understand,
Baby, I’m a man and maybe you’re the only woman,
Who could ever help me,
Baby, won’t you help me to understand?

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you’re with me all the time,
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I leave you,
Baby, I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song,
You right me when I’m wrong,
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you.
