So I was reading the Greil Marcus book and I decided to post about Masters of War and Blowin in the wind. To be honest with you it has been bugging me for a while now about these two songs but I held it in, so here is me about to vent (sort of). Blowing in the wind is a incredible song I love the way it asks questions that who knows when they will be answered. I think it was a brilliant song that deserve the number 2 place on the billboards but I BELIEVE MASTERS OF WAR IS BETTER THAN BLOWIN IN THE WIND. Masters of War is very heartfelt that grips at the soul when he sings/plays it. The best line in that song is when he states he will go to their grave and watch while they bury them and stand over their grave to make sure their dead (I lost it when I heard that)!! I’ve never heard a protest song that strong before. Masters or War is the EPITOME of greatness and I think it should be talked about as much (or more than) Blowin in the Wind. Okay done venting BYE!!
