Blowin’ in the Wind

Today’s song is Bob Dylan’s 1962 song Blowin’ In The Wind. It can be considered a protest song, but basically asks a series of rhetorical questions about war, peace and freedom, and stating that the answer to these questions is “blowin’ in the wind”. The random fact about today’s song is that in 1975 it was included as poetry in a Sri Lankan high school English textbook, but this caused controversy as the song replaced Shakespeare texts in a previous edition of the textbook!
