So you thought 1965 was an easy choice? See how you get on with these four?

Of course you're right! I'm not going to compile any more Poll's. I think the problem is that there isn't much else going on apart from concerts we missed and wished we'd been to, rumours of a new album (will it be a Duets album, will it be an album of folk covers, has recording started, etc, etc). We need something to talk about, some definite news on BS14, etc.

# 3 is real good. # 1 is good too, but OOUMK sits better within the context of BoB.

I dislike RDW 12 & 35 and yet somehow I own that single.

Can't really make up my mind. All I can say is that the RDW single is the worst of these four releases.

I couldn't make my mind up on this one either, at first I was going for Just Like A Woman, then I changed my mind - now I'm revisiting it too see exactly how I voted. This year was more difficult to decide than 1965, for me anyways!

That's what I finally voted for, but it was a close contest between three of them.

I for one wish you would, these are pretty fun. It's always interesting to see the wide range of tastes from different people.

Always have loved Queen Jane. One of my absolute favorites. So that backed by One of Us is an easy pick.

I'm thinking the very same thing but I'm willing to bet its for VERY different reasons.

Which makes it predictable.
And you didn't even mention Just Like A Woman.

All 4 A sides are necessary and equal. Yes, even Rainy Day Women. That song needed to exist.

Well, considering that "Queen Jane" was about 7 months old and previously released, I suspect people back in the day were not as excited because they got one new song for the price of two?

Not intending to derail this thread, but how many exclusive b-side has Dylan even released? And how many of these would be considered classics, in the same vein that, say, Beatles b-sides were?

If I'm not totally mistaken, there were about five or so exclusive b-side songs on Dylan singles over the years, and maybe a dozen or so alternative versions of previously released songs. With the possible exception of "Spanish Is The Loving Tongue" (not a Dylan original, mind you), hardly any of these qualify as classics in my mind.

The best lines out of any of those songs might be
the drunken politician leaps
upon the street where mothers weep


but it's hard to top
and I told you as you clawed out my eyes
that I never meant to do you any harm


I Want You certainly had more commercial potential. Not that I care. I could never choose between these two.
