October Top Ten + the All Bob Dylan list

in celebration of the release of The Bootleg Series, Vol 8, Tell Tale Signs

based on my own collection & including a few covers. esp in the case of Best of, the songs are available originally somewhere else, but i don’t have those albums. how foolhardy to rank Bob Dylan songs. i don’t believe this is set in stone because a) i haven’t heard his entire oeuvre and b) whims change, but still...these are the songs that i like best of Dylan’s right now. today.

1. Like A Rolling Stone (Highway 61 Revisited)
2. Knocking on Heaven’s Door (Best of Bob Dylan)

6. In My Time of Dyin’ (Bob Dylan)
7. Idiot Wind (Blood on the Tracks)
8. Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright (Best of Bob Dylan)
9. Most of the Time (Oh Mercy, because I don’t have Disc 3 of bootleg 8 and like this version more than the alternate on b8)
10. Red River Shore (bootleg, 8)
11. Shooting Star (Oh Mercy)
12. If You See Her Say Hello (Blood on the Tracks)
13. Tangled Up in Blue (Blood on the Tracks)
