Resolved Question: Bob Dylan vs Billy Joel?
Who do you think is better?
When it comes to talent and knowledge, I'll have to go with Billy Joel, for he can play the Piano (a not so easy instrument to master), guitar, harmonica and probably an accordion, while Bob Dylan only plays the guitar. When it comes to lyrics, again, Billy Joel is much better.
But, when it comes to what makes a song a song, and not a poem - the melody and the rhythm, I can't decide. They're both great, musical geniuses in the true sense of the word.
Whose melody do you think is better?
