If you were to pick songs from each decade of Bob’s work, songs that would best capture his Nobel citation as showing how he captured the essence of American popular music over the years and transformed it, what would they be?

He never captured any essence of American popular music.

the language regarding the prize is:

"for having created new poetic expressions
within the great American song tradition".

I guess the Nobel Prize Academy was thinking about songs like Hard Rain, Tambourine Man or TUIB. I don't think that Bob got that Prize for anything he released in the 80ies or later.
