Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 -- Bob Dylan

 

Some people have come up with various theories about what these numbers signify. Others have interpreted this as a drug song ("Everybody must get stoned...") But in a 2012 Rolling Stone interview, when asked if it bothers him when people misinterpret his songs, he said, "It doesn’t surprise me that some people would see it that way. But these are people that aren’t familiar with the Book of Acts."

 

So there you have it!


That's an interesting story. Thanks for sharing it. I think that a lot of Bob Dylan's work is often misinterpreted. He certainly inspires thought!
