Most Meritorious Player: 1971 Discussion

Most Meritorious Player: 1971 Discussion

A year I know mainly from the fantastic Topps set. The Orioles, Athletics, Giants and Pirates made the playoffs with the Pirates winning the World Series in seven games. In other news, SABR is formed.

Voting will end on April 18th 2012.

Ah! I understand now. I'm not into folk, and know almost nothing by Bob Dylan except his rock radio hits, which are like, what? Three songs? And the Pink Floyd songs are ones that I just don't recognize. I gave up on that band as soon as Syd left, and never even got one of their albums. If it isn't See Emily Play or The Wall (which you can't avoid), I very likely don't know any Floyd songs. I just assumed that your list were later rock hits from one of the subgenres, like techno, that I never got into. When you're a little tone deaf, you tend to deal mostly with music where the rhythm is carrying the song, hence my fascination with The Who. Techno, where the rhythm doesn't vary at all (Chicago House is even worse) and things like Lionel Richie ballads are just lost on me. I can't hear what it is they're trying to do. On the other hand, I have happily bought tickets to see Babatunde Olatunge (spelling very likely off), an East African drum master, and I go every time Usted Imrat Khan, Washington University's music artist in residence, who does classical Indian ragas on the sitar, actually plays out. Although, now that I think about it, Desolation Row does sound like the kind of title Dylan would give a song. Isn't 1965 about the year that he blew up the Newport Festival by going electric? That's probably the most important thing I know about Dylan, and I'm not even sure I have the right festival.

Bjkanke, if yo put Closer that high, I think we can be friends, and yes, it is 1965 that Dylan F-ed with the hippies.
