Maybe. But that surely doesn´t mean we have to like what "everybody" does with it

Just watching the video. The most overtly protest thing Bob has done in decades, finally something not from the 18th century or about Jesus, which has beats, hooks and ear worm skills and is getting some love on Youtube, and you lot are bitchin' like grandmas in a sewing circle. Pfft. The folk process - heard of that?

Never mind, am sure there'll be another live video of Spirit On The Water along in a minute.

I just don't think it's very good. Parts of it work, particularly the beginning, but in the end it doesn't float my boat. I've got nothing against using bits of the past to create something new, but I'm under no obligation to like something simply because it does that.

As for the idea that 'the song belongs to everybody' - no it doesn't. Around a campfire maybe it seems to, but you try making your own video mash-up of a Dylan song and see how long it stays online. Sony own it, Bob second.

The video was lame, Sesame Street stuff. Remix / masher guy should stick to the music end.

I think it's great -- Bob reinvents songs every time he sings them, so what's all the fuss?
It gives the track fresh layers, more ways to think about it (just like the best cover versions).

If you enjoyed the Avener remix, here's another Masters of War remix from 2010 by Scntfc American. Back then, the only way you could hear it was to purchase a violent video game called Crackdown 2 (or have a friend who could rip the song to a FLAC file).

Enjoy:

It's nothing to do with the 'process' of what's been done to it.

Anyone can do what they like with the song. Of course they can.

But let's not pretend that what's been done to it is anything but a cynical attempt at gaining traction with 'da kids'.

You can hardly call this a reinvention. This version reveals nothing new in the song, and basically just bolts monster truck wheels onto an old sedan. It's a sledgehammer job that's poorly executed.

Just because it's new, doesn't mean it's not shit.

This. Well said. I agree completely with you.

I generally like the idea of mash-ups, there have been better but i like this, except those last few lines, what was that all about :shock:

i think the idea is that
it’s the way the song might sound
down inside a deathbed
when the singer is standing over the grave

I’m good. No need to return to this remix/mash thing.

Not a very Gandhi-esque type of song to begin with, but
I’ve always been drawn to it...Bob’s versions, anyways.

Hope the added electronic effects help find some more
new Dylan Inc. customers.

Some putz sat at a computer running FruityLoops and applied template #421 "Dubstep douchebag". Total garbage... The funniest part is that we have clowns on ER who think it's good.

It's not bad, however, during the remix process, the essence of Bob was removed; therefore I hate it.

Essence of Bob - the new fragrance for the woman in your life. Guaranteed to make her utterly resistible to other men.

It's like a fart. It pops out, it stinks and then it drifts away. How many of you, who like it, will actually sniff it again?

Probably won’t listen to it again, and the only farts I care to smell are my own. :)

I played it to a mate - also a musician - in his car the other day. Cranked it up loud and he LOVED it, said Bob sounded great.

I've now heard it at least 5 times, so yeah, whatevs.
