One of Dylan's greatest songs. No ambiguous, cryptic or silly rhymes. This is ingenious, insightful, straight up word play and story telling.

Quite the poet this man called Bob.  Not much of a singer though his voice oft-times fits the lyrical quality of the song.  He and Tom Waits are, in this respect, cut from similar cloth.  While something of an acquired taste there is, still, something of a timeless quality to the writing (if not the singing).  His Nobel prize is well deserved.  {#Clap}  Something for other musician/song-writers to aspire to, eh?

Interesting stretch of tunes here; bunch of Bob's songs covered well, then this. Nice for a drizzly gray hint-of-fall kinda day. I saw Bob at Red Rocks in '86; he did not connect with the audience, but performed well. Friends who saw him in 2012 were quite disappointed...

Blood on the Tracks was done on the fly .He didn't like what he had recorded and had a deadline. Redid it all  in short time back home. Pretty great Minnesota musicians!

Dylan was one of the icons of the counter-culture yet managed to maintain a healthy scepticism and some distance with regards to the 'movement', his own work and his own personal life.

He is truly a great.

Given the number of Dylan songs that I've heard in the last half-hour, I add my prayers to this humble petition. 
Has Bob bought RP, or did he just barricade himself in the studio?

Yeah...well...Right Now this is the third Dylan song in a row. And yes, covers count. So my question stands:

I disagree. I quite like this song.
I'd say "Idiot Wind" is the weakest track (and it goes on too long).
Apologies to the RP member who borrowed the handle.
Otherwise, yes, an amazing album.

What cements that fact, is that, as far as I know, he's never 'sold out'. Also, some of the interviews I've read/heard from this musical sage have been incredible. He really does come across as a down to earth, grounded, spiritual person of the first order.

Don't worship this man, just respect him - incredible talent, unbelievable journey.

How Bill gets an appropriate amount of Dylan's geniuse on RP.  Two covers followed by a Bob redording.

No reason to boo that.  Girl has some soul in her voice, just hides it behind pop crap.  I've come to really appreciate her version of this song.

Dylan as a songwriter/poet: brilliant. Dylan covers: great. Dylan singing: mute. At least, with his 60s voice - his latest blues albums where his adenoids have gone and voice dropped by an octave are pretty damn good.

Just about everyone does at some point(s), especially later in their careers.  At the time of this recording (37 years ago), I'm not sure he did.  I guess it depends on who you ask.  He probably relishes being a parody of himself.
