Bob Dylan is a legend. he wrote some amazing songs and his voice is like no other. peter paul and mary are cool but they do not compare to what bob dylan has done for music.

Bob is less mindlessly cheerful, and therefore better.

Dylan for sure, his skills in song, or to be more exactly text, -writing is simply sublime.

I don't care for this genre at all, but when I was a kid the song Puff the Magic Dragon was like my favorite song ever. I can see just see 5 year old me dancing around to it... Good times.

My vote is for Peter, Paul and Mary

Bob Dylan is more skilled, in my opinion. His songs are sometimes more thoughtful, sometimes calmer, and at the same time some even more cheery than what I just heard of Peter, Paul and Mary.
Finally, his songs were covered probably thousands of times. Rare are artists who had so much of an echo.

I hear Bob Dylan songs all the time, and I didn't like them at first, but now he is starting to grow on me like moss. That hasn't happened yet with Peter, Paul and Mary.

This is an impressive turnout for only the first day.

Bob Dylan - 5
Peter, Paul and Mary - 1

Bob already holds a 4-point lead. Let's see if the glorious trio can come back before the voice of a generation takes the victory cake.

I think I like Bob Dylan the man more than I like Bob Dylan the musician. He is definitely legendary, but his voice combined with that harmonica gets annoying pretty quickly. With music, I always go for sound, and Bob Dylan's, while unique, gets old fast. Peter, Paul and Mary, in contrast, harmonize beautifully, and Mary Travers has the voice of an angel. Bob Dylan may have written Blowing in the Wind, but Peter, Paul and Mary blew it out of the water.

Don't get me started on their cover of John Denver's Leaving on a Jet Plane.

I haven't listened to either one of them, but I vote Bob Dylan. I vote Bob because he is more recognizable, and because... stuff.

I can't decide which one I like better musically, so I'm voting Dylan, for his songwriting skills.
