What’s Bob Dylan’s Best Song?
Of all Bob Dylan songs, “Rolling Stone” magazine is singling out “Like A Rolling Stone” as his best. The rock journal is celebrating Dylan with its May 24th issue, which also marks the music legend’s 70th birthday. The magazine enlisted the help of an expert panel of musicians, writers, and academics to rank tracks from Dylan’s catalog. “Like A Rolling Stone” was at the top of the list. Other Dylan songs in the top five include “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” “Tangled Up in Blue,” “Just Like a Woman,” and “All Along the Watchtower.”
Bono, Mick Jagger, and Lucinda Williams are also contributors to the special Dylan feature. Each wrote essays about songs on the list of Dylan’s best work. Fans who can’t pick up the magazine, can visit RollingStone.com to peruse a list of Dylan’s 20 “overlooked classics.”
