Bob Dylan

The voice of a generation

Robert Zimmerman, also known as Bob Dylan, is one of the greatest musicians with a career spanning over fifty years and 35 albums behind him. In the early sixties, Dylan became the voice of his generation; his music connected folk, blues and traditional music, transferring a message of freedom while opposing hypocrisy and the rule of "the man". His beginnings were defined by pairing the acoustic guitar and harmonica, accompanied by his distinctive vocal style. Just as the audiences started accepting his musical expression and status as a protest singer, Dylan did a sudden stylistic turn. This turn was first exposed on Bringing It All Back Home, an album widely criticized at the time.


As with anything Google creates, their commercials tend to hit you right in the feelings. They've had "Dear Sophie," where parents chronicle their child's life through Google videos, documents, and calendars; "Dog," where a family finds a stray dog and adopts him; "Parisian Love," where two people fall in love in Paris; "Google Chrome: Jess Time," which tells the story of a father/daughter who recently lost their wife/mother; and "Brother and Sister," which follows a sibling rivalry-turned-friendship. So it's hardly surprising that they're latest commercial focuses on how wonderful moms are, just in time for Mother's Day.

What do you think? And don't forget: tomorrow is Mother's Day, so do something nice for the wonderful women in your life!
