Bob Dylan – Señor (Tales of Yankee Power): Interpretation in a Video

It was not long ago that I became aware of the spiritual context of Bob Dylan‘s Señor (Tales of Yankee Power) even though it was released on the B side of Changing of the Guards as well as the 1978 album Street Legal, which also contains Love in Vain – a song I had regarded as very spiritual for a long time.

Here’s a shot at an interpretation from a spiritual perspective:

Interpretation of Bob Dylan’s Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)

Some aspects: what I find striking / topics I see in the song:

  • The very memorable beginning: No fooling around, it is about deep questions right from the start
  • Longing for a conscious connection to the newly born soul
  • Tension between the old state of being and the calling of the new soul
  • Humbleness and a new focus in life
  • A decisive moment: dedicating one’s life to the new soul for good

We have written about the song in detail here.

Let me know what you think of this Dylan masterpiece!
