I don't get it either. I thought it might be a 'generational thing' but Joni Mitchell is on now and I love this song so it's not that. I just fail to understand the reverence for Dylan.

Doing so well today, but you couldn't resist ruining it with Bob Dylan. {#Biggrin}

Has there ever been a better opening line to any song than "Nobody feels any pain..."?  Maybe "They're selling postcards to the hanging..."

i don't doubt that at all, as I absolutely concur that this song is shite, even if one could look past the overt sexism. The god-awful nasal whining that passes for singing induces a visceral hatred in me. But even if the song was handed to an actual singer, it would still be a dry, sandpapery 💩 of a song. The pain lingers long after the event has passed. 

Just cringe-inducing agony from the first wobbly note to the can't-come-fast-enough ending. #diediedie

That seems to be the essential question of our time. The tactic appears to me to be simultaneously self-satisfying and self-defeating. For myself, I have little to no respect for those who employ it, though I grant exceptions to those who poke fun without apparent malicious intent.

There are those who explicitly throw insults at artists and their fans if they dislike a song or the artist, that's unwelcome. Insults serve no useful purpose in a dialogue about subjective tastes other than to reveal the characters of the persons who throw them. But simply stating that you don't like a song or an artist is not in itself an insult and should not be treated as such. 

Dylan, like a number of polarizing artists on RP, remains a source of mystery to both fans and non-fans alike: "how can you (like/not like) him?" Well, that's the nature of polarizing artists. If you like him rejoice. If you don't, explore the mystery to your heart's content but know that there is something there that escapes you, and move on.
In the interest of transparency: there are Dylan songs I like but this song is a 1 for me. 
Peace.

I missed him first time around, Can.

Ten, maybe twenty years on, you'll start to understand that 'this guy' created all the bands you're listening to today. And when that time comes, you'll break, just like a little girl.

Towne Van Zandt a few minutes ago, and "I'ts all Over Now" by Van Morrison after. Then "To Ramona" and "Just like a woman". A friend of mine, Claude died this morning.
He liked Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Towne. . I hope that where he is now,  he  listen to  Radio paradise.

Bob Dylan - great lyricist, some even say poet, but not the greatest performer of his own songs.

Many, many great covers of his songs out there though, by diverse artists.

The Nina Simone cover of Just Like A Woman is superb - a tender rendition that reveals the emotions contained within the song in a way Bob Dylan, I'm afraid, just can't.

Er, sorry Bob!

This, and most other stuff by Dylan, is dated. Probably OK if you were young at the time, and had strong enough ears to listen to and care about the lyrics through the terribly loud mouth harp. PSD for me, every time that harp kicks in.

Generational I guess.
I don't hear the singer/writer speaking to me or about me.

I hear a lovely lady, once upon a time, she was becoming a woman and I a man.
The dance was lovely... the whirl around the city and countryside...

Then the music stopped.
What do I cherish, carry forward, remember...
And the music, smells, the feeling of magical times....

I'm glad I have her to occupy my thoughts rather than him and his voice...
He was just my conductor, tour guide, curator... of my journey.
Everybody's travels will be different.
The journey is not his fault. The memories are yours.
Maybe it's time to make some better ones.

Don't worry many modern singers can't sing either

Sigh...I sat and thought about your last two words. What changed?
At 64 how the heck can I answer..or think that one through ... without sounding like the churlish old grump  ... that I probably am to most.
My mind replies with a torrent of things that changed in our..in my ..Universe.
- It contracted. How can you love this guy's music and words - like I do -  if you have three dozen electronic sensory stimuli going at once? If your brain cannot give you the time to listen past the dissonance?
- It expanded. The quietness between the sips of coffee and the cigarettes?.that silence that S&G sang about? the one you could listen to? .it got filled up with an electronic cacophony of tweets and blogs and commentary and opinions that we may not need, that cry down anything that's not today's shoe size.

Aw..what the heck... I'm just warming to voicing that twinge-y pain in my chest that the question unearthed and RP is alreday three songs on.

I guess that's it.
It changed.

I'd probably sing like this if 80% of my brain was removed via lobotomy or I did about 2lbs of cocaine and meth a day.  Or maybe if I was an alien from another planet and had only actual read about singing but never heard what singing was.  Then maybe I'd sing like this, albeit with a lot of drool, but still not exactly this bad.  PSD.
