I’ve always been drawn to ambiguity in pop music. I loved learning about how Bob Dylan refused to be the poster boy for the folk protest music movement and became one of the greatest artists of the 20th century by embracing rock’n’roll and surreal, poetically evocative lyrics – a rebel against the rebellion. Or Morrissey’s reimagining of rock stardom as literary, gay and somehow almost euphorically depressed. Nothing sets me on fire like the walking contradiction. I trust someone more if they are not down the line, or not what you would expect them to be. It’s a signal that they are being real with us rather than inhabiting a pre-existing cliche.
However, unlike most of social uprisings in the past where demands were normally written through official documentation, in the sixties, rebellion is introduced in a lyrical manner through Rock Music.
