Bob Dylan's Messed Up Americana

So much has been written about Bob Dylan and his music - so here's another perspective! It's about a couple of my favorite Dylan songs, "Highway 61 Revisited" and "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream". They're romping and surreal stories, unrelenting with allegory.

Highway 61 is the road that straddles the Mississippi river. Hop in a giant Buick sedan to see the sights; a tense moment between God and Abraham, conniving promoters wanting to sell seats to Armageddon. There are also cryptic exchanges between a few other sketchy individuals.

"Bob Dylan's 115th Dream" is a story about Captain Arab and his crew coming ashore to America. The captain's name is pronounced like Ahab, the obsessed whaler. Anyway, it's the "redneck" way to say A-rab so there's another message to ponder in this insane misadventure.
