Song to Woody


r1_d1

An oldie but goodie—gotta love it !


StAugistineofHippo

Mine too! And my most played overall.


smokeitindohomie

One of my favorites!!


meowVL

Simple Twist of Fate followed closely by Shelter from the Storm. Surprised my top Dylan songs are all Blood on Tracks cuts, I would have said I'd be partial to the debut record, specifically Song to Woody and House of the Rising Sun


SentientFurniture

Simple Twist might just be TOO good of a song. I discovered a new-found love for that song this year.


meowVL

The way the harmonica comes in always gives me chills. And the entire “he woke up and the room was bare” verse. Great, great song.


Waterfall_flow

I’ve made up my mind to give myself to you. I played it at my wedding this year!


r1_d1

Perfect choice!


title_of_yoursextape

Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright… cliche I know but the Still Game ending gave it a special place in my heart.


r1_d1

One of my absolute favorites!


CataPineapple39

One of Us Must Know Love me some Blonde on Blonde Interesting tho that second was I’m Not There, which I didn’t think would be there


r1_d1

Blonde on blonde is absolute gold. Stuck inside of mobile was my number 2 this year


GnarlyNugget12

It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry


r1_d1

This is my go to song for Dylan noobs to listen to!


VGP_SC

Queen Jane Approximately


r1_d1

Have you listened to the Dylan & the dead live version? I can’t decide if I like it better than the original ahhhh


[deleted]

the man in me!


MyNameIsBobH111

Same for me too. It's in my cooking playlist, driving playlist, biking playlist, guitar play along playlist, my sit around doing nothing in particular playlist...


tyrone_slothrop_0000

he’s a good man, and thorough.


[deleted]

“oh, well, all right”


theonlyjaguarsfan

Same!


KYS666YOLO420Blaaze

Me too! It was my number 1 of the year. It’s high in the running for favorite song of all time too. I just love it, and it’s what got me listening to more than just Dylan’s hits years ago.


myqua

Me too! I don't know I should be embarrassed or proud of it. 🤣


MyNameIsBobH111

PROUD! His voice is at perfect rasp, the lyrics are solid, and the mix of piano, organ, vocals is sublime Americana.


Dankeykang91

Same


Jef_Delon

Up To Me It’s been that type of year


r1_d1

Dude that was my 2020 most played song! I understand completely lol


TheGroverA

Visions of Johanna


ZizeksPoorNose

Isis Just addicted to the melody and the lyrical delivery.


Harriets-Human

I had three versions of Isis in my top 100 songs. If they'd been added together, it would have been my top Dylan song (and second-top-song overall). I would recommend checking out the live versions if you haven't already. I go back and forth on whether I prefer live or the studio version.


sirutahmanami

I want you.


MonotoneCreeper

Same! It's so catchy


44035

Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues from the Live 1966 record


tyrone_slothrop_0000

one of my all time favs (from any artist) in general, but there is something about that version. and besides that, if i could only listen to one dylan recording for the rest of my life, it would be that one. absolutely phenomenal


Blitz6819

Most likely you go your way (And I’ll go mine)


flufftartponcho

Gem of a song


ATay93

Weirdly, Precious Angel. Finally saw the light on the religious period this year, though not the light on religion.


thewickerstan

Lay Lady Lay! It was my 8th most played song. Something about those bongos and steel guitar just hypnotize me, not too mention the lyrics ("Whatever colors you have in your mind, I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine").


flufftartponcho

Song that started my Dylan fandom


FirminoFalse9

Simple twist of fate. Let’s just say it’s been a rough year lol


r1_d1

We’ve all been there my friend! Luckily Bob gifted us blood on the tracks


mythrowaway0852

Tangled up in blue


wmeffert1

A lot more love for Simple Twist of Fate in the thread but I think I prefer this.


The_CanadianGuy

Jokerman babyyyyy!


tuberculosis99

Mine too!


bobisthewalrus

Mama, You Been on My Mind - Live at Philharmonic Hall, New York, NY - October 1964


r1_d1

I love this version! You can really hear the great chemistry between Joan and Bob


AntacidChain

Just Like a Woman


pomadelicking

Song to Woody. Second most listened is Positively 4th Street


shitbuttpoopass

Mine was positively 4th street!


wilddreamcatcher

One too many mornings. Probably one of the best discoveries I made this year


r1_d1

Ahhh I love these kind of discoveries


Stratengar

Idiot wind from hard rain.


tyrone_slothrop_0000

all the different versions on ‘more blood, more tracks’ are incredible and it’s so rewarding to listen to each one and hear the different variations, both lyrically and musically


Stratengar

Of course. That song is salvation.


evilsupper

Tangled up in blue.


SavageTyrant

“Things Have Changed” for me


aidanm018

Gates of Eden was in my top 100 too, such an amazing and underrated song but my highest was As I went out one morning, at 4th


pmmeweirdal

She Belongs To Me


billwalton69

Just Like Tom Thumb's. see flair for which version


tyrone_slothrop_0000

they absolutely kill it on that version


pep2475

Boots of Spanish Leather


tyrone_slothrop_0000

one of the most heartbreaking and beautiful songs ever written imo. you ever hear this version? https://youtu.be/iOHkyZ62jjQ


Maclean_Braun

Song to Woody, Girl from the north country, and ballad of a thin man by a significant margin. I wrote my senior thesis paper on Bob Dylan and used those as my major examples so I listened to them a whole lot.


greatmanyarrows

The Royal Albert Hall version of Ballad of a Thin Man


vinscullyposse

Love the organ. fits the aura of the song so well.


Bandai_God

Girl from the North Country, followed by Don't think twice it's alright.


karma3000

She's Your Lover Now (Studio Outtake - 1966)


Harriets-Human

Shelter From The Storm- Live at Hughes Stadium.


gattacawasagoodmovie

Great track, thought the Live at Nippon Budokan was my favorite version until I heard this one.


kerouacrimbaud

One More Cup of Coffee. Dylan was my most played artist, but this song only clocked in at 20th.


CollegeSleezeball

Just Like A Woman


CollinMarshall908

“Mr. Tambourine Man” was my 2nd most played song of the year overall. Then “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Like a Rolling Stone” were my next two most played songs.


SentientFurniture

Tangled Up in Blue cuz I'm a basic bitch. Oh well...if it means I'm a basic bitch, Bob shouldn't have made that song so damn good.


Mattd570

The Band’s I Shall Be Released was my most played song written by Dylan but my most played song recorded by him was Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again


cd1310

It’s all over now baby blue 1975 rolling thunder revue version.


like_bookends

girl from the north country.


r00t1

Too Late (band version) I listened to this thing 38 times. Was an amazing complement to foot of pride and the best song on the bootleg series.


bad_gateaway

JOKERMAN


vinscullyposse

My Own Version Of You


Innisfree812

Yea! Heavy and a bottle of bread!


TobyCelery

The comic book and me, just us, we caught the bus. Haven't listened this to this song in too long. Going to go change that


sidvicarious

Strangely enough it was I Dreamed I Saw St Augustine. I've developed a bit of an obsession.


justchewingtherag

Abandoned Love! Sort of an addicting listen


detoxmansion1

Don't Fall Apart on me Tonight - listened to Infidels (great and underrated)for the first time in years, that is my favourite on the album

smokeitindohomie

The lonesome death of Hattie Carroll


cappy-nev

Which version


smokeitindohomie

The original version on "The Times They Are A Changing"


cappy-nev

The og is great. 1975 live version is awesome too, different from og but really cool, from his Boston show that year.


sungamdam

Changing of the Guards


wide_side_eye

What Can I Do For You, followed by Pressing On. Not necessarily religious, I just love Saved. Wound up in the top 0.05% of Bob listeners this year.


HunterThompsonsentme

East Virginia Blues


gilbertbenjamington

Dear landlord, idk why, I guess it hit different this year


tricia109

Tell Me I do love this song but was surprised it was my most-played Bob song


infinitepars

Tomorrow Is a Long Time


walkamileinmy

I haven't looked yet, but I'm betting its either Born in Time (was my alarm for a short while), I Want You (MTV Unplugged 2) or one of the Mississippi's from Tell Tale Signs.


Awizy

If not for you was the song for me! Fourth time around close thereafter. Kind of surprised it wasn’t sara, as I listened to it religiously for a longer period. Might be split up between the original and live versions..


andykndr

really can’t believe it, dylan is usually my most listened to, but it didn’t even make the top 10 songs top Dylan song is Folsom Prison Blues from The Basement Tapes complete collection edit: dylan is my top artist but i guess i listened to other single songs more

Jockey full of burbon (tom) 8. Night Life (ray price) 9. simple twist of fate (bob) 10. Rosa Parks (outkast) i thought i listened to a lot more new music.... oh well.... maybe RARW counts....lol


marco-esquondolas

Forever Young, slow version for me with Jokerman coming in at #2


Tnpf

Can't wait


jshatan

Bob was my #1 artist but not in my top 5 songs, which is due to the fact that I spent a month or two listening to every studio album while making an 80th birthday playlist. So my listening was too spread out to hit the songs chart. The playlist - emphatically not a greatest hits - turned out well: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2fQEf8VTB46e60ZtYI77Lg?si=NTb6Mi6uRumOm2t-skTSig


Nonstoplink

I got Jokerman


CanadianStatement

Oxford Town


TheEvilGerman

Changing Of The Guards! Last year was Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts


tyrone_slothrop_0000

i don’t have spotify, but i would bet that it was ‘sad eyed lady of the lowlands’, followed closely by ‘you’re a big girl now’


josh3d5

Bessie Smith was my overall most played!


jrobertk

Moonshiner, from the Bootlegs. That one really gets me lately.


marleyman3389

What can I do for you live toronto


mmalloy91580

My top two were Too late Crossing the Rubicon


elscorcho6613

Tempest … that song is such a fun ride


wmeducational

Foot of Pride (Alt version from Springtime in NY). Not sure how that happened but I do think its the best song on Vol 16. Even if “the reviews are mixed”…


Tylereye6

Just Like Tom Thumb Blues (Live 1966)


TalesOfFan

Blowin' in the Wind. It was my number one song.

c-monkeys

My own version of you. Followed by Mississippi. The lanois version of course.


skwm

the Girl From the Red River Shore outtake on Tell Tale signs. I Was Young When I Left Home, was my "most binged", which I think means "most times in a row" as I was trying to figure it out on guitar and I suck.
