    Idiot Wind, One of my favorites. The video/audio is a little bit raw but I like the performance and he's playing a Tele.

    You need to go to Expecting Rain..
    There is NO way for a Dylan fan to pick a favourite song..

    But anyway, i hope the new angry woke crowd will listen to 'my back pages'.
    A song w a few messages:

    Crimson flames tied through my ears, rollin' high and mighty traps
    Pounced with fire on flaming roads using ideas as my maps
    "We'll meet on edges, soon, " said I, proud 'neath heated brow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now

    Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth, "rip down all hate, " I screamed
    Lies that life is black and white spoke from my skull, I dreamed
    Romantic facts of musketeers foundationed deep, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now

    Girls' faces formed the forward path from phony jealousy
    To memorizing politics of ancient history
    Flung down by corpse evangelists, unthought of, though somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now

    A self-ordained professor's tongue too serious to fool
    Spouted out that liberty is just equality in school
    "Equality, " I spoke the word as if a wedding vow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now

    In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand at the mongrel dogs who teach
    Fearing not that I'd become my enemy in the instant that I preach
    My existence led by confusion boats, mutiny from stern to bow
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now

    Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats too noble to neglect
    Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect
    Good and bad, I define these terms quite clear, no doubt, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then I'm younger than that now



    edit:
    it is still quite remarkable how quickly he moved away from the banner holding 'movement' after the success of 'The times they are a-changing'.
    He just refused to be their leader and spoke (woke) person.
    Rather brave for a young man at the time.
    Ahead of its time for sure.
    I just wish more people would wake up nowadays..

    It seems the older I get, the more Dylan I need to hear.

    To quote Steerforth, "Hit it Bob!" Dylan and Petty live, "Like A Rolling Stone."

    Another one I’ve always liked a lot is Tangled Up in Blue.

    It's hard to pin one down from such a prolific writer.I do remember as a child of 11 or 12 after a baseball game I played my Mom took me to a pizza joint where they had those weird jukebox stations in the booths.What did they call those? Anyways I really liked BD then and I decided to play Desolation Row... Still dig that tune .Put my Mom through 11 minutes and 21 seconds of WTF.Did you play that?

    I don't know how to post songs, but I'll take any song off of Bob's first 7 albums, and Blood on The Tracks, maybe ( today):

    " Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again"
    or
    " Desolation Row"
    * if anyone can post either, thanks!

    ( I play the guitar parts, on a bunch of Dylan songs, just for kicks at home, these 2 are in 'heavy rotation')

    Another vote for Hurricane, but this brings back funny memories.

    And this has one of the greatest guitar solos ever! It's funny, the liner notes credit Dylan with lead guitar on this song, but somewhere in the last few years or so I read that's the case only on the intro. So here all these decades I was thinking Dylan was capable of really screaming lead guitar, but that turns out to be Robbie Robertson.
