At the time, his albums Bob Dylan, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A Changin’, and Bringing It All Back Home had established him as a major figure in the music industry. He reminded people of The Beatles but with more poetic depth and integrating a folk sound. However, he lost many of his fans when he decided to perform with an amplified electric guitar.

From a young age, Dylan had an interest in music and was driven by several entertainment icons such as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis.

The decision received a lot of controversy, for many people questioned his qualification for the award. Many people felt disrespected, as they felt more talented in literature, and believed that Dylan was a musician, not a poet.

To me, music has played a large role in my life ever since I was a child. The way in which music can affect people in a variety of ways has always fascinated me, which led me to question how exactly music affects and has an impact on our memory, concentration and emotions. Every year we are introduced to new songwriters who create music portraying special, different messages and evoking different emotions that can be felt through melodic rhythms and ideas.
