Happy Birthday Bob Dylan! Around the world, in 11 languages
For his diehard followers, there is no limit to Bob Dylan’s reach, in time or in space. As he reaches his 80th birthday – with a Nobel Prize and yet another mind-blowing album released at the age of 79 – this self-proclaimed “man of song and dance” is in a league of his own. cultural. Better to put him alongside William Shakespeare than Bruce Springsteen, more on the scale of a Wolfgang Mozart than a Paul McCartney.
Dylan is also a modern global phenomenon, with his myth and music spreading rapidly across the planet (like so many good and bad things) after his emergence in the 1960s as a potential voice of 20 years of his generation, until his ever-on tour which landed in 1000 cities in at least 54 different countries of our world by his side.
It is therefore inevitable that his songs, from classics like “Blowin ‘in the Wind” and “Like a Rolling Stone” to more hidden gems like “Farewell Angelina” and “Simple Twist of Fate” are found in other languages. So, to wish Bob a very “happy birthday” our Worldcrunch way, here is a multilingual sample of Dylan International. Enjoy!
