3 - On Borrowed Time
4 - Julius & Ethel
5 - Handy Dandy
6 - Precious Angel

I agree with them too, apart from Julius and Ethel.

I am a lonesome hobo, which somebody mentioned, is one of the (many) great Dylan vocals IMO, subtlest blues singing he ever did

Lilly rosemary and the jack of hearts
Positively 4th street
Ballad in plain d

Lilly etc ad nauseum is about as good an example as I can think of, of how not to do a story song. Unrelenting crappola.

I do, however like black diamond bay.

Positively 4th street and ballad in plain d are juvenile, bitchy and way beneath bob. The birds skyways line is about the worst in bobs lexicon. Im fond of his nonsense poetry lyrics. Surrealist bob floats my boat.

The johnny thunders version of Joey is far superior to bobs, and ill stand in my biker boots on anyone's coffee table and defend that statement.

Im highly suspicious of anyone who claims not to like tom thumb's blues, ballad of a thin man, or indeed anything from highway 61. Smacks of trying a bit too hard to be different.

Anything produced by Lanois would have been better if it hadnt been. He savaged man in the long black coat. But the songs are solid. Street legal would be great minus backing singers and drum machine.

Ballad of a Thin Man, Brownsville Girl and the boring half of "Love And Theft (Moonlight, Bye And Bye etc). And I could add things like I Shall Be Released, With God On Our Side and perhaps Forever Young as well... Hattie Carroll is pretty boring musically.

And why a song like Spirit On The Water is a sort of staple in his live shows is a complete mystery to me

Knocking on Heaven's Door
Forever Young

Crass and obvious songs knocked off in a few minutes with lazy rhymes and obvious changes. That these are probably two of the songs he'll be remembered by is tragic, and contemptible. Popularity does not equal class.

Really, Tim? Knocking has lyrics far superior to any later offerings, and the coolest cover ever, courtesy of Hendrix. I dont see that as a sloppy one. New pony however....pap. Filler. Nothing wrong with knocking's music. Complicated doesnt equal good. Kinda reminds me of the Stones, and look at the backdrop it gave jimi.

Sorry? Knocking on Heaven's Door? By Jimi Hendrix? In 1973? I look forward to hearing that!

It's style over substance, as another poster on this thread used to describe Brownsville Girl.

I find Cross The Green Mountain to be profound. I do agree that Brownsville Girl is over-estimated...still enjoyable, though.
