Bob Dylan had a major influence on the lyrical content that became part of the rock vocabulary. His recent Nobel Award in Literature points to the lasting impact that he had in creating an expanded idea of lyrics as poetry and literature in the popular song format.
Question: What contemporary song (post 2000 and excluding any Dylan song) do you consider has a lyrical content that falls into the category of being uniquely articulate and has a type of imagery or other literary parameter that follows in the wake of what Dylan first brought to lyrics? Include specific examples of lyrics within the song to substantiate your opinions. (Minimum of 2 paragraphs – not including lyric examples.)
