#6 “I think you will find/ When your death takes its toll/ All the money you made/ Will never buy back your soul…”
A lot of us remember the time when Bob Dylan dropped Masters of War, and just thinking about it still gives us goosebumps. It is, after all, the most well-known protest song, and we doubt someone can rise to this type of songwriting masterpiece soon.
The singer wrote not only about what generations were concerned about, but he also managed to pen it down in such an expert way that the lyrics cut you to your core. With the Vietnam War raging, Bob Dylan managed to capture all the rage, disgust, and fear a lot of Americans were feeling at that time.
The first person just makes everything even more personal, and the simple melody the lyrics accompany makes the message of the song even more powerful.
And since words hold so much meaning, we can end up insulting someone without even wanting to! Check if you are one of those people who are accidentally offensive here!
