    Default Song Battles Round 9: Bob Dylan (Final Round in Post 23)

    Here We Go:

    This battle only runs through the album Desire which was release in 1976 because I didn't have space for everything even from that period, so I left out the most modern stuff people were less likely to be familar with.

    Sine most of the songs are probably very familiar to everyone, I tried to put in YouTube links that were a little bit fun. Live performances where I could find good ones.

    Early Dylan Early Acoustic Songs up to Bring it All Back Home
    1a)Blowing in the wind (YouTube )
    1b)The Times They are a Changing (YouTube )

    2a)Mr. Tamborine Man (YouTube )
    2b)Spanish Harlem Incedent (YouTube )

    Middle Dylan Electric Bring it all back home and Highway 61
    3a)Maggies Farm (YouTube )
    3b)It's All Over Now Baby Blue (YouTube )

    4a)Subterranian Homesick Blues (YouTube )
    4b)Like a Rolling Stone (YouTube )

    Middle Dylan II Blonde on Blonde and John Wesley Harding
    5a)Visions of Johanna (YouTube )
    5b)Just Like A Woman (YouTube )

    6a)Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 (YouTube )
    6b)All Along the Watchtower (YouTube )

    Later Dylan Nashville Skyline - Desire
    7a)Knocking on Heaven's Door (YouTube )
    7b)The Hurricane (YouTube )

    8a)Simple Twist of Fate (YouTube )
    8b)Tangled up in Blue (YouTube )

    #1 was tough. I guess 2 of my top 4 Dylan songs and his "Most Important Ones"

    I know. There were a couple of rounds that were tough matchups and then a couple where I knew one song was going to blow the other out of the water (Round 4), but there wasn't anything I could do without reorganizing how I was making the initial picks, and that was tough enough.

    Just for interest here are some songs that didn't make the cut but were in my initial list of songs to maybe include:

    Don't think twice, It's all Right
    I shall be released
    It's All Right Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)
    Just Like Tom Thumbs Blues
    Lay Lady Lay
    (Sooner or Later) One Of Us Must Know
    The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carrol (almost did make the cut)
    Tombstone Blues (almost did make the cut)
    Ballad of a Thin Man
    A Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall
    Gates of Eden
    Stuck inside Mobile with the Memphis Blues
    Highway 61
    Shelter From the Storm
    Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands

    Heck I could do a whole second round of Dylan that didn't make the first cut still without including any of the stuff he made after Desire.

    5b)Just Like A Woman
    6b)All Along the Watchtower
    7b)The Hurricane
    8b)Tangled up in Blue

    Some tough choices there.

    Random thoughts: I've always liked Dylan's version of Watchtower. Seems more intense than Jimi's. I like Dave Mason's take on it too. Not to mention BSG's!

    But the best Dylan ever is still My Back Pages. For those who aren't up on Who's Who, the band consists of Dylan, Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Jacob Dylan, Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn.

    I'm going with Tangled Up in Blue also. Thought I was going to be the only one. This might be a horse race after all.
