Barack Obama Surprises Us + First Time Hearing Bob Dylan | BookTube Trailer
We listened to Bob Dylan, the 60’s counter-culture icon, after seeing his name mentioned in President Obama’s book A Promised Land. We also got to ask President Obama a few questions, and we'll ask him even more on the December episode of BookTube only on ALgone 12/16/20.

    Bob Dylan is one of if not the best song writer ever. He never had a pretty voice, but he sang with soul. I suggest you listen to “Like a Rolling Stone” by him. It is so, so, so true.

    President Obama, dropping love and wisdom ❤️🙏 Not to mention telling you guys about having to roll up cassette tape ribbon with a pen (yes I am old enough to remember doing that 😆) Love it. You guys deserve all good things.

  • dechinta

    My favorite video EVER of yours! Love Barack Obama and miss him terribly. So I love seeing him anywhere and to see him here on your channel! Awesome! Oh man, he is telling the TRUTH about those cassette tapes. And when you couldn't get the 45 record or the 33 album but tried to tape a song off of the radio and the DJ would break in during the last part of the song, which ruined it! Oh gosh, it was indeed a hassle. You guys are so very cool, but oh my gosh, you got President Obama on your channel! How great is that?! I am smiling so big my cheeks are hurting! Hurray for you!

  • blackkatt777

    It's funny you should mention storytelling and campfires because that is exactly what type of music this is, but the genre is labelled Folk music. A lot of this type of music was big in the 60's and 70's. There were many life changing stories to tell from those eras that paved the way. Music has always been a motivator, and a timestamp of where the world was in its growth as a species. Music is life.

    And this is why regardless if you agreed with he man's politics you can't deny he has been the best modern day Prsident of this country simple because he is grounded and for the people, regular people who live normal lives and not only relatable to the elite. He has lived a life that almost all Americans (even those that wont admit) have somerhing in common. He can and makes anyone at ease. 💪🏾❤ thank you #44, my president 4 life 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗❤❤❤❤

    What a beautiful surprise! We subscribed awhile ago for the same reason- were old too! We're in our 40's & we love watching you guys bring back our beloved old music to introduce it to others who've never heard it. It is important what you're doing. You attracted the best president we've ever known! Congrats, guys. Much love to you, stay healthy & keep making videos! (So happy you played Bob Dylan, Times They Are a Changin'. What a perfect song for the moment!)

    I adored this. Obama listening to Dylan makes my heart happy. I recommend listening to the Bob Dylan of the Millennials - Conor O’berst in the band Bright Eyes “the first day of my life” is a great song to start with.

    The video you started, was 1964. When Dylan was first being heard. When president's had music performers at the White House, he was one of Obama's first performers there.Dylan was already around 70 in 2013. Dylan has won Nobel Prize for his lyric poetry. I saw him live with Tom Petty, Roger McGuinn from Byrds in Army in 1987. He wrote All Along Watchtower and Jimi Hendrix covered it. listen to Dylan and Hendrix version and notice a "slight" difference between the 2 versions of same song. Kinda like Disturbed cover of Simon & Garfunkel 'Sound of Silence", or Dolly & Whitney "I will always Love you". Congrats on Obama call... peace out

    Thank you, Mr. Obama. He has it right. The things I love about your videos, besides uplifting and sweet, you listen with open minds AND you are positive. You send a quiet ‘message’ about just enjoying music and love, taking out all the other negative factors. From someone dealing with chronic pain during this pandemic, you brought a smile and laughter into this woman’s life and I thank you..
