The promised review. Posters have nominated 122 different songs, the top 12 are;

Blind Willie McTell - 16
Desolation Row - 13
Visions of Johanna - 13
Its alright Ma.. - 12
Like a rolling stone - 11
Tambourine Man - 10
Hard Rain's a..... - 9
Tangled up in Blue - 9
Every grain of sand - 7
Idiot Wind - 7
Shelter from the Storm - 7
Lay down your weary tune - 6.

Songs like Blowin, Times they are.., and Forever Young registered but not heavily, yet 50 to 100 years from now they might well be the songs (anthems) that Dylan is remembered by. Interestingly 8 of the above feature in current setlists. Several songs with 5 votes also appear frequently or fairly regularly - Not Dark Yet, Things have changed, High Water. Which probably indicates that Dylan is playing what people want to hear. Obviously the selections indicate a strong preference for sixties material.


not a bad summation at all! the only change i would make is substitute Lay down your weary tune with Farewell Angelina....and it needs a modern song, probably in place of shelter from the storm....but there are many anti-mod folks, so the results are not surprising.

It's not raining here in Dublin today. At least not yet. (The day is long.)

Anyway. Twelve is really hard. But here goes:

A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall
It's Alright Ma
Like A Rolling stone
Ballad Of A Thin Man
Visions Of Johanna
The Ballad of Frankie Lee & Judas Priest
I Shall be Released
Tangled Up In Blue
Idiot Wind
One More Cup Of Coffee
Senor
Every Grain Of Sand

Miffed that I couldn't include something (Not Dark yet) to represent the more recent years (decades). But when all is said and done these are the twelve that really move me the most.


nice list! - you have put down a lot that i was pained to pass by so i would have room for some modern songs...

- Mr Tambourine Man
- Like A Rolling Stone
- Queen Jane Aproximately
- Positively 4th Street
- Visions Of Johanna
- Tangled Up In Blue
- Shelter From The Storm
- Changing Of The Guards
- Mississippi

Mr Tambourine Man
Just Like A Woman
Positively 4th Street

As I Went Out One Morning
Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You

Delia made the list first time round but I figured I should avoid the issue of covers and/or re-writes.

Changing one again this time. Blind Willie McTell has to go in there somewhere, maybe take Simple Twist. As painful as that it is too say.

Isis appears overwhelmed by this endeavor! It ain't no easy task. In fact I could not even make an attempt at this ... I commend your continued and ongoing efforts Isis! I am enjoying "your pain". If we allowed a waiver of the "top 50" would it be any easier for you? I'd quite welcome your Top 50 MEZ
