mixtape monday: bob dylan

Bob Dylan Contemplates

  1. Girl From the North Country – my absolute favorite, but surprisingly hard to find on youtube… here’s a version with Johnny Cash, which isn’t as good as the studio version, but still rock’s in its own way.
  2. Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right – just like GFTNC this song showcases the amazing fingerpicking style that I can only dream of learning to play.
  3. Blowin’ in the Wind – okay, as you’ve probably noticed by now The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan is my favorite album, and this song I can play on the guitar…. which makes me love it even more.
  4. Subterranean Homesick Blues – (a different album!) and unless you belong to my generation or you live under a rock, you’ve seen the music video.
  5. Masters of War – this brings out the little activist in me, makes further visible the darkness of organized war. The lyrics are genius.
