Very simply... what is your favourite Bob Dylan song?
I love "It's all over now Baby Blue", "Knocking on Heaven's Door", "It's all right ma (I'm only bleeding)",
"Like a Rolling stone", and "Maggie's Farm..."
I also love the Hendrix cover of "All along the watchtower..." :-)
My favorite one is Senor.
Hendrix cover of the "wachtower" is out of any competition
It's all over now, baby blue----definitely one I can listen to over and over...
Tangled Up in Blue is pretty good, that and Like a Rolling Stone are faves. All Along the Watchtower is great but the darn commercial radio stations have played the Hendrix version to death- really a cringing overload. Wish they would play Dylan's original song instead!
Great choices, all of those!
Did anybody get the "Oh Mercy" album about 15 years ago... some great songs on it too --- especially "What good am I?"
Don't Think Twice it's Alright,
Rainy Day Woman,
Subterranean Homesick Blues.
Oh, and Lay Lady Lay,
Shelter from the Storm
Newer stuff... Everything is Broken,
OMG, I don't know what my favorite is!
To be stUUUck inSIDE of MObile with the MEMphis BLUES agAIN.
Gotta love that iambic pentameter. Or just the mention of Shakespeare, grandpa dying, debutantes, and bricks all in one song.
The times they are a changing
Forever young . Such a great song to send on someone's birthday.
Mama You've Been on my Mind
Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands
Positively 4th Street
Changing of the Guard
Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues
The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll
Love Minus Zero/No Limit
Sorry, couldn't just pick one...
very simply, Like A Rolling Stone
and just about everything in his early years.
Well it's always going to be 'Mr. Tambourine Man ' but I love this one too: Tangled Up in Blue
been trying to get 'All the Tired Horses' but not allowed in my country (sorry about that) 'Things Have Changed' will have to do:

OK OK one more! (They're all good) 'One Too Many Mornings':
Looks like I'm committed here "Blowin in the Wind':
My absolute fave Dylan tune is Desolation Row. It is one of the most epic songs of all time. It is the height of poetic genius. I also am really into Idiot Wind one of the best FU songs written about a former lover ever. I also dig his early 60s protest material with Only a Pawn in Their Game, Masters of War & A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall being my favorites of his socially conscious tunes.
I didn't know that one - Desolation Row. Thanks!
It is from Highway 61 Revisited (my favorite Dylan album, with Blood on the Tracks being a close second). The song is also 11 minutes long. It is an epic way to close off the album.
Highway 61 Revisited is a brilliant piece of musical history, my favorite Dylan album. No one else could have penned Desolation Row and given it a voice like he did. I have quite a few Dylan bootlegs. He is certainly one of the best living songwriters.
Watchtower and Like a Rolling Stone. Maybe Mr. Tambourine Man, too.
Masters of war
