Leah Broad | Posted 16.10.2017 | UK Entertainment
Leah Broad

The power of Dylan's lyrics comes from the fact that they are precisely that -- they are part of his songs. Awarding the prize to someone who is primarily a songwriter is a welcome move, as it appreciates that lyrics are literature too.

Just because I prefer the music of yesteryear doesn't mean I automatically dismiss the latest tunes. I'm all in favour of flash-in-the pan, one-hit wonders. But I'm still going to swing left-of-the-radio dial, as programmed by BBC Radio 6 and NPR Music in the States.
