I have to admit that I don't understand any of it. All of it seems like pop songs with a sound that puts it into a marketing category of sorts. I'm reading a music history book called "Linthead Stomp" that pretty much makes the case that that has always been true.

Yes, to each his own. I love songs like this, although my version is ver6 different from the original.

I personally think that comparing Dylan to Tin Pan Alley is both useful AND relevant. In that vein I think it IS valid to compare today's outstanding songwriters to Dylan, which BTW I am not a super fan of. Nevertheless I think there is a useful comparison.

By the way, when is a songwriter deemed "outstanding", and by whom???

When Universal Music buys your entire songwriting catalog for somewhere over two hundred million dollars . . .
