For The Brokenhearted God Created Dylan
Dylan. To serious music lovers, all you have to do is say his last name and they know who you're talking about. (Though it's not his real last name but let's not spoil the moment.) Talking about Dylan can be overwhelming like trying to describe the ocean to a blind person, however, Dylan's music is very personal. For instance, if you've had your heart broken, Dylan is your man. He not only has songs to help you through he has a few albums to listen to while you're crying into your pint of Ben & Jerry's. My favorite Dylan-album-for-the-broken-hearted is Blood On the Tracks. "Shelter From the Storm," "Simple Twist of Fate" and "If You See Her, Say Hello" are my favorite tracks from this album. These songs were like iodine for my emotional wounds. You don't have to be heartbroken to enjoy them, but if you are, he helps.
