Bob Dylan - what are your fav. songs?

With all the Bob Dylan-related things going on (movie and
album reissues) what are your 10 favorite songs?


----Top Ten:
1 Hurricane
2 Things Have Changed
3 Rainy Day Women
4 Just Like A Woman
5 It's All Over Now, Baby Blue
6 Love Sick
7 Shelter From the Storm
8 Maggie's Farm
9 Forever Young
10 Subterranean Homesick Blues


There are so many that it's hard to choose.

I really love THINGS HAVE CHANGED (from Wonder Boys OST)
and the opening track (Love Sick) to Time Out Of Mind.

2 newer recordings that I think are timeless.

He has so many great songs, it is hard to choose 10. I saw him last November in Philly, and he still rocks the house!

BTW, everyone should pick up the hybrid SACDs on September 2nd, they should completely destroy our concepts of how the songs sound. Most of the current CDs were mastered almost 20 years ago.

That's like asking which color of froot loops you like best. or what letter of the alphabet is the best. or what beer is the best.

Throwing this in here since it is a Dylan thread. Anyone see this new "Dylan" album coming out 10/2? It seems to be another compilation, but this one is 3 CD long. I don't know exactly what it has over The Essential Bob Dylan, but if you wanted it, this would be the week to buy it. edit: Apparently there's a one disc 18 track compilation, but who would need that? There's also a 3-disc deluxe version AND a limited version that's the three discer in a fancy cloth package with booklet.

Dislike the career-spanning compilations! A dislike even more that people deem this necessary when Dylan has had a half dozen or so Greatest Hits discs already.
