It's not that bad. Sure, apart from Brownsville Girl, there's not much going on, but some of the songs really have potential. Have you heard Band Of The Hand? According to Al Kooper, there were a ton of outtakes that had that kind of sound. You Wanna Ramble superficially touches on that sound, but it comes up short. Driftin' Too Far From Shore could have been a great song - really! The riff is great and there are some clever lines there.

I am looking forward to seeing the moving on him coming out soon. our kate blanchett is playing his early days also heath ledger which sould be interesting. the thing with dylan is that his music is timeless. he spoke to a generation through his unique style. he never had the best voice but it was distinct and seemed to go with his lyrical style. i think its time their were more artists like him, cohen, guthrie and young. someone that will speak to us through music and move this new generation.

I saw `I`m Not There` two nights ago - its a trip!
You really have to know the ins and outs of Bob to appreciate it fully though, the actors playing various Bobs are great.

This is a terrific thread by the way, its hard not to like Dylan isn`t it?


Here`s a Dylan lyric that made me laugh out, whilst singing it last night...

"Don`t wanna wink at nobody, don`t wanna be winked at...."
Guess the song?


And here`s my true favourite, its a powerful verse...

"Then she opened up a book of poems
And handed it to me
Written by an italian poet
From the thirteenth century.
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burnin' coal
Pourin' off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you..."


Its the way he sings it, rising in passion!

Must say, i thought Hayden Christensen did a good job in `Factory Girl` playing Bob. He really brought out the smugness that Bob oozed at that time, when he knew the cameras were rolling.

My favorite Dylan lyrics are this, this, this and this:
Old lady judges watch people in pairs
Limited in sex, they dare
To push fake morals, insult and stare
While money doesn't talk, it swears
Obscenity, who really cares
Propaganda, all is phony.

My eyes collide head-on with stuffed graveyards
False gods, I scuff
At pettiness which plays so rough
Walk upside-down inside handcuffs
Kick my legs to crash it off
Say okay, I have had enough
What else can you show me?

And if my thought-dreams could be seen
They'd probably put my head in a guillotine
But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only.

How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do

Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul

"There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

"No reason to get excited", the thief he kindly spoke
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late".

A South politician preaches to the poor white man
"You got more than blacks, don't complain
You're better than them, you been born with white skin" they explain
And the Negro's name
Is used it is plain
For the politician's gain
As he rises to fame
And the poor white remains
On the caboose of the train
But it ain't him to blame
He's only a pawn in their game.

i find it funny that Dylan thought the Beatle's song "I Want to Hold Your Hand" ment "I get high. i get high. i get high."

It sure sounds like that, doesn't it? Plus, that would make for a much better lyric.

Watched most of "Don't look back" yesterday on VH1. I was mesmerized how Dylan handled all the journalist and fans. He truly was an artist and I truly need to dig into his body of work more, I've only scratched the surface.
