"Like A Rolling Stone" from the album: Highway 61 Revisited.
This is the birth of an iconoclast that gave Rock and Roll its roaring voice. This song and album inspired many generations and continues to do so to this date. Electric in every sense, and with lyrics that properly accompanies its groovy sound, It's a must listen!
2. "Visions of Johanna" from the album: Blonde on Blonde.
This song is often regarded as one of Bob Dylan's greatest achievements in songwriting, and can be described as heart wrenching poetry. The song starts off with a powerful line setting the tone for the song: "Ain't it just like the night, to play tricks when you're trying to be so quiet?"
3. "Positively 4th Street" from the album: Greatest Hits Album.
Released in 1967 "Positively 4th Street" is a song that can only be described as a "go to hell" song. The relentless lyrics deliver a punch to the gut with every line, To put it simple, you wouldn't want to be the person Bob Dylan wrote this song about.
4. "Mama You've Been On My Mind" from the album: The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3.
"When you wake up in the mornin', baby look inside your mirror. You know I won't be next to you, you know I won't be near. I'd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear, as someone who was had you on his mind." 😥
5. "Spanish is the Loving Tongue" version from the album: The Bootleg Series, Vol 10.
Probably my favorite Bob Dylan song of all time. The lyrics are based on a poem written by the cowboy poet Charles Badger Clark. 🤠 It's now of the most highly covered poems of all time and Bob Dylan has several versions of it.
