Not a Dylan fan at all but one of the few songs I liked by Dylan was "Hurricane"

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!

HUGE Dylan fan!!!! I think my favorite is 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright'. (At this minute, anyway! :D )

"Tangled Up in Blue" always seems to be a popular one, but it just doesn't do it for me. My favorite use to be "Like A Rolling Stone" but now I would have to say "One More Cup of Coffee."

It's not easy being green.... good thing I'm purple.

+ 1 for Desolation Row.

But I love to play Don't Think Twice at the moment.

Anything, absolutely anything, from Blood On The Tracks....

But my all time favourite has to be "Positively 4th Street"...I played that over and over again about the time my first marriage fell apart, just seemed to sum up my mood perfectly....

"Sad-eyed Lady of the Lowlands" is absolutely magnificent....

And of course, "Mr Tambourine Man" - as done by the Byrds....

Hmmm.....I feel a new thread is about to be born.....

:D :D :D

Always loved "Just Like A Woman" but after watching the Dylan documentary on the Beeb, I think "With God On Our Side" is an excellent piece for any beginner to learn and lends itself to alteration of the lyrics to suit your own situation, which as was said, Dylan did a lot in his early years when he was doing Woody Guthrie songs.
Its asong I never heard before Tuesday night

I also love to hear "SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK BLUES". Think its brilliant

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

For me it's almost impossible to consider which is my favourite song. But at the moment, I would say (in no particular order), Shooting Star, Tombstone Blues, Everything's Broken and Rainy Day Women #12 & 35, have been heavy on rotation on my iPod.

"Blowin in the wind" I think had the most influence on me early on.
I really love so many of his songs it would be hard to pick a favorite.
I do think I want to learn "Tamborine man" real soon.
