One of the most beautiful and spiritual songs that I love is "Turn, Turn, Turn" by Pete Seeger and also done by The Byrds. It's based on Ecclesiastes. There are a lot of very spiritual songs written and sung by Bob Dylan, including my favorite, "I Believe in You." The trouble is that the songs send me into the stratosphere but at least one of these artists is an absolute schmuck (Dylan). How is it that such a spiritually lacking person could write such beautiful songs? I wrestle with that a lot. I would love to see an essay on that contradiction.
