Hello. We all love voting and ranking stuff, right? So let’s do it with some artists’ back catalogues. This will be a series of threads (unsure of timeframe etc at the moment) so if you don’t like an artist then don’t you worry your sweet ass, another will be along soon after. This time we’ll be voting on songs by BOB DYLAN
HOW IT WORKS
So, voting will be similar to ones I’ve done before. You have 10 points to distribute however you like, across the entirety of the artist (Bob Dylan in this case)‘s entire catalogue of songs. Album tracks, singles, b-sides, whatever you like, if I can google it and verify that it’s by them then it can get points. You can give all 10 points to one song or 1 point to 10 songs or anything in between. I’ll then calculate the points totals and do a results thread where the boards’ favourite song by whoever the subject is will be revealed.
PLEASE DM ME TO VOTE, VOTES POSTED IN THE THREADS WILL NOT BE COUNTED
Any questions? Thought not, let’s get going!
General chat is encouraged, obviously.
another one where there’s a very obvious top pick for me, just got to decide how many others to include
featured in both the High Fidelity and Royal Tenenbaums soundtracks - truly the mark of a genius
Fuck takin part of this one I’ll have a crisis. Too many songs.
the trick is to get your list done quickly without thinking too much, then spend the rest of the week plagued with regret
I literally started thinking about it and wanted to curl in a ball.
Tempted to whack it all on Murder Most Foul
Tempted to whack it all on Like A Rolling Stone
Tempted to whack it all on Hurricane
Tempted to whack it all on If You See Her, Say Hello
Tempted to whack it all on Positively Fourth Street
Tempted to whack it all on A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall
Tempted to whack it all on Fuck’s sake Funkhouser, you monstrous bastard. This is gonna be harder than R.E.M…
Also, I hope nobody sleeps on his best album in the past 30 years
Add Wonder Boys to that list
very much used to be of the view that most Dylan covers were better than the originals, which I’ve aged out of
but still think it holds true here - a (relatively) shonky original which is just stunning in this version. And from a very different type of performer, I find the message just as believable if from a different perspective
need someone else to vote for buckets of rain, didn’t quite make it onto my list
Yeah this is going to be tricky but definitely will be a point or more for this
Not my favourite ever artist, but reckon he has more great songs than anyone else.
For fuck sakes man, right I’ll get back to you on this.
Gives me a good excuse to listen to entirety of the back catalogue
Tell you what though, he’s got fucking wads of great songs.
No deadline as yet. A good while though.
Also like to say a big hello and send my love to all you fellow Dylan enthusiasts
Sweet. I mean blood on the tracks has about 4 of the best songs ever written on it
