My Top One

1) Knockin on Heaven’s Door
The lyrics describe a person who is slowly dying and is ready to pass on to the next life. The song is filled with emotions, from sadness to acceptance, and it strikes a chord with anyone who has experienced loss or is facing their own mortality. The guitar riff is simple yet haunting, and Dylan’s voice is raw and full of passion.
