Weekend Rock Question: What’s Bob Dylan’s Best Post-1960s Song?
Bob Dylan is being honored this weekend with an incredible tribute concert in Los Angeles featuring performances by Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Beck, Jack White, Willie Nelson, Beck and many others. Jimmy Carter will be on hand to present Dylan with the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year Award. It’s surely not a coincidence that Shadows in the Night, Dylan’s new collection of songs associated with Frank Sinatra, landed in stores right around the time of this event.
Now we have a question for you: What is Bob Dylan’s best song written after the 1960s? His first decade in the industry was unquestionably the time when he changed music forever, but he’s worked steadily ever since and his post-1960s catalog is absolutely stunning. Feel free to vote for a Blood on The Tracks classic like “Tangled Up in Blue” or “Idiot Wind,” a 1980′s gem like “Blind Willie McTell” or “Brownsville Girl” or something more recent like “Duquesne Whistle” or “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’.” Any song he released after 12/31/69 counts. Please only vote once and only for a single song.
