Has new Dylan song captured corona mood and can you tell us your own story?


Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan has released a new song which is 17 minutes long and is called Murder Most Foul.

Listen here

It is about the assassination of John F Kennedy and many other things that have happened since then.

Like the corona virus, the death of John F Kennedy was experienced as a global event.

We all heard about the death of JFK - for some of us it will count as one of our earliest memories.

How we experienced that moment and what came after it was of course unique to all of us.

So it is today, with the corona virus - the way we feel about this common experience is unique.

What happens next will become our own unique story to tell.  

Bob Dylan claimed not to have experienced the shock of Kennedy's assassination any differently to anyone else .

In fact when he was asked in 1971 why he hadn't written about it at the time he said:

“If I was more sensitive about it than anyone else, I would have written a song about it, wouldn’t I?”

But he has written a song about it, and here it is.

We hope this song speaks to you as it did to many of us at New Europeans.
