Bob Dylan and Depression

Posted in Music by microwavebiscuit on July 6, 2008

When feeling depressed is it better to listen to Dylan or not? In the plus column, “Blood on the tracks” is quite possibly the world’s greatest album to listen to ’cause Bob really gets it. Conversely, when you listen to Bob because you are depressed you are then reminded of the last time you were depressed and put on Bob. This of course is known as the Dylan circle of depression wherein the listening of Dylan because you are depressed brings back old depression memories causing you to listen to more Dylan which in turn brings back further memories and so on until you are no longer able to get out of bed.

I’m stuck with a sense of Deja Vu as though I’ve written this post before although it could just be the Dylan.
