JFK, Bob Dylan, and the death of the American Dream 

From The Nation, Tim Shorrock reconnoiters the terrain of Bob Dylan’s “Murder Most Foul.”

…the song is a reminder of the beauty of our music and culture. It’s a tribute to the artists, obscure and famous, who’ve taken us through the hard times, and who continue to lift us up as we brave this new world of Covid-19, social distancing, and the death of thousands by government failure and incompetence. In “Murder Most Foul,” that music becomes the counterpoint, the juxtaposition, to the horror and chaos of both JFK’s very public death and today’s global pandemic.
