Ну, работа Боба Дилана в традициях русских подпольных певцов. Так же, как Владимир Высоцкий, певец, чья музыка была использована для удивительный танец Михаи́л Никола́евич Бары́шников в фильме "белые ночи... "

Неплохо. Кажется, чтобы захватить чувств

"Well, the work of Bob Dylan in the traditions of Russian underground singers. Just like Vladimir Vysotsky, a singer whose music was used for an amazing dance by Mikhail Nikolayevich Baryshnikov in the movie "White Nights ..."

Not bad. It seems to grab feelings"

That's the above comment ran through Google translate. Vladimir Vysotsky whjo was a Russian actor, singer and poet. He was frowned upon by the Soviet authorities, so much of his work was underground. I guess what sounds a bit overwrought to American ears is how Russians like to style the songs.

Oh, and here is a link to Vysotsky's song He's Not Back From The War. Like Knockin' on Heaven's Door it is about death, so it seems appropriate.
