From Music to Poetry and Back Again

Have you ever been crooning along to a favorite tune and stopped to think how poetic the lyrics can be? I myself have often wondered at what point do lyrics become poetry and vice versa; some of my favorite songs could most likely be written out as a poem and still be equally powerful without the music. Could musicians such as Bob Dylan or Bono be considered modern day musical poets? Here’s an interesting fact that might make you think more in depth about the question: according to this article Bob Dylan was actually a formidable contender for the Nobel Prize in literature back in 2011! What do you make of that? :)
