    Default What's the best Bob Dylan song (or your favorite ?)?

    It's pretty hard to pick one but Me, I'd have to say it's "Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again".


    But maybe it ties with this for it's haunting melody -

    "4th Time Around"

    I cannot do it. I cannot come up with just one. Or just two or three.

    I love Dylan and most of what he has done, but for some reason the song that haunts me is 'To Ramona'. It's a sort of Appalachian waltz tune, and I especially love Sinead Lohan's cover of the song..



    And Dylan's original..

    Positively Fourth Street.

    Obvious, but there it is. It's a great song by any measure.

    Almost any of them, provided they're sung by someone else. Preferably the Byrds, but really, anyone else. Tiny Tim, even.

    There must be at least a dozen I could think of, but the first thing that came to mind when I read the OP was "Forever Young".

    Yea. really tough.
    For years it was " Like A Rolling Stone"
    Then " Positively 4th St."
    Then, when it came out title song..." Highway 61, Revisited"
    "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"
    I really like "Things have Changed" now. (appropriate in multiple ways, no?)

    Because an older brother played "The Best of the Byrds" endlessly when I was 15, "My Back Pages" is the song I think of most often. "All Along the Watchtower" covered by Hendrix ain't bad neither.

    If Dylan is performing it, Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat. Best cover of a Dylan song, Cloud Cult doing Mr. Tambourine Man.

    By the way, on a slightly nautical related note, I once knew a sailor named Bob. He named his two sons Marley and Dylan.

    Lots of great songs out there, but...Joey takes the cake.
    Please don't dominate the rap Jack, if you've got nothing new to say.
