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 USshow 12/16/20.

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..

Bob was a great lyricist, but a great singer he was not lol. His son Jakob Dylan has the better voice in the family and he’s a great lyricist as well. Check out any of his bands songs, they are called The Wallflowers. They had a huge hit called One Headlight, but you should also check out their other songs. 6th Avenue Heartache is really good and I also love Three Marlenas. Also kudos that a former President knows who you are!! My mom used to work for a former President, she’s retired now. Her former boss was Jimmy Carter, such a great man!

This spoils it a bit for me knowing that they have producers waiting behind their camera and Obama coming on merely to plug his book which he mentions 3 times! We thought you were more organic than this , just the two of you and a couple of iPads sitting in your bedroom. Keep it real.

There are currently 580 complete and total assholes who have clicked onto this video. What is their major malfunction that could cause those 580 trolls to hit the 👎🏼 button other than their own not so secret insecurities about themselves causing them to be a racist and or hater of other peoples’ success? Obama woulda been the best President since FDR if the oldest internet troll in the Senate, Mitch Mkkkonell from the shit state of Kentucky, hadn’t been Senate majority leader for 10 years of this great man’s presidency.

I heard of Bob Dylan but I never really got too deep into his catalog ...that song was featured in the movie Watchmen during a crucial montage of scenes that depicted real life events with a is cool...that Barrack Obama was paying attention to what these Young Men did over the past couple of years...he did not have to take time out of his busy schedule to participate in this video and a lot of Men of his status do not things like this...that is why I respect him...he always took time out to speak with young people and did not alienate them....basically he tried to relate to them...probably one of the coolest Presidents to ever sit in the oval office...even after several years out of that position...he is still trying to make some things happen!

Go troll somewhere else. Pres. Obama was elected to two terms and did great things for America, in spite of Republican intransigence and people like you. Pres. Obama will go down in history as one of our greatest presidents. The guy currently in the White House, not so much.
