The Times Are A Changing


Born on May 24th, in Duluth, Minnesota – Robert Allen Zimmerman, also known as Bob Dylan, is an American singer-songwriter. With a unique voice, brilliant knack for a good tune and undertones of society and world politics – his music has been a definitive source of inspiration for generations. Here’s a look at his life and his best work that has achieved legendary status.

1. First Recording Deal
At age 20, Bob Dylan signed his first-ever record deal. Driven by the influences of pop stars such as Elvis Presley and Little Richard, his first album – simply titled Bob Dylan – contained only two original songs. Over the next few years, he would go on to release many iconic songs that are still on any folk rock lover’s playlist, even today.

2. The Times They Are-a Changing
First released in 1964, and a song considered by many to be his finest ever – The Times They Are-A Changing is a song with heavy socio-political undertones. Influenced by the times and the world around him, Bob Dylan pushed himself into mainstream public consciousness with this track, and its still on playlists to this day!

3. Like A Rolling Stone
In 1965, Bob Dylan returned from tour in England, harrowed and tired. With his mind on the experience he had at a young age, he wrote the lyrics to a seminal song – Like A Rolling Stone. Everyone remembers the track for its brilliant, confrontational lyrics and fantastic music composition – even today.

5. Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat
Like many of his songs from this period, Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat had lyrics that were surreal, paired with electric blues and Bob Dylan’s unique voice. While not as famous as the aforementioned songs, this one remains a favourite of Bob Dylan fans worldwide.
