The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

QOTD – March 14 – Blonde on Blonde

It’s Friday, and Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde is rattle-shake-strum-poetry-drawling from my small stereo in my classroom. It feels like a Dylan type of day – however that’s supposed to feel. I haven’t listened to this album in a couple of years, and I’m kicking myself for that. It’s brilliant. It’s like going to therapy – well, therapy that actually works. My classroom is a zoo today. Students are stressed about the research paper their working to complete; it’s a due day for all of their research notes, and while they are getting it done, and powering through, it’s definitely creating that hurricane effect, and “Sad-Eyed Lady” is definitely presenting a nice soundtrack at the moment as the first period winds down.

What is the soundtrack to your Friday?
