Saw a commercial during the Super Bowl featuring Bob Dylan. He was singing a fast version of "Forever Young". For anybody who saw it, do you when this version was recorded?

Not watching and didn't see, but I heard he had just done one with ... maybe will.I.am or someone? I forget. I assume it was that.

Yep, that's it! Obviously, it gets my vote for the best commercial during the Super Bowl.

I am totally into 'Tell Tale Signs' (2 CD of course) these days. It's by far the best Dylan release of the last, um, 20 years to me (and I do like 'Time Out Of Mind' and 'Modern Times' a lot).

I also got a copy of the 3rd CD (from the TTT limited edition 3CD box) for free. Which is nice.

Yeah, it's always a kick to discover some "new" Dylan material. On Tell Tale Signs, for me it is "Red River Shore". How could Dylan record a song that great - and not release it?

Tell Tale Signs is great. It's almost like a new album even with all the alternate versions of songs we know. THe live stuff, while good, isn't as good for me. But those alternates/outtakes, wow. Fantastic album. If my best songs could compete with his outtakes...

Excellent news. I really appreciate the bleaker side of Dylan's lyrics these days, Workingman's Blues #2 being my very favorite post-Blood-On-The-Tracks song of his.

I am a huge Dylan fan. I ate up the 3CD Bootleg Series, Vol. 9 the day it came out. All the versions of "Mississippi"... I'm in heaven.

I am only Live at Buddokan and MTV Unplugged away from owning all the official Dylan albums... except of course the countless soundtrack songs.

I saw him at Austin City Limits... I was front row. He played by two favorite songs "Workingman's Blues #2" and "I Shall Be Released". The best night of my life.

I am a big fan of his country & western period between "The Basement Tapes" and Pat Garrett. I also went through a phase of his "born again" period. The harmonica solo in "What Can I Do For You?" is Dylan at his best.

Can I extend this to 'quadrilogy' (Time Out of Mind) and throw in the 'Things Have Changed' single too? Thanks.

One of the (many) reasons I love Dylan's late career renaissance is that he pays such meticulate attention to the SOUND of the music. For all the recent talk on the SS boards about brickwalling and overly-compressed records, Dylan's LPs, especially Modern Times have such an incredible depth and richness of sound. Modern Times LP is never far from my turntable simply because it sounds beautiful.

Having said that, I still don't like Workingman's Blues #2. Some good lyrics and i love the sentiment, but the melody, and the piano, sound like they were written in the 80s. And not in a good way. It reminds me of a song that I can't quite place.

This new Dylan album has me really excited. I don't buy many "new" albums anymore, but I can't wait for this. Maybe he'll tour it in the U.S. this summer.

I'm trying very slowly to convert my brother-in-law to Bob Dylan; he hates him. So, just tonight, I was looking for one song, just the right song, to initiate him (I emailed it to him). And I chose "Tangled Up In Blue". After "Lay Lady Lay", it might be my favorite Dylan song. And, unlike some groups, my favorite Dylan songs don't change that much.

I know it's very elementary and simple and probably boring, but I'm curious....What is everybody's favorite Bob Dylan song?

Five songs that come to mind immediately:

- Workingman's Blues #2
- If Not For You
- If You See Her, Say Hello
- Desolation Row (love his singing here)

Like with my other favorite bands, it's impossible for me to choose a favorite Dylan song. But Visions of Johanna, I Want You, Mississippi, It's All Over Now Baby Blue, the Live 66 version of Like a Rolling Stone, Maggie's Farm...oh hell, there are a million up there.

In the Bob Dylan thread, probably. Otherwise, no.

I think it's a toss-up between Simple Twist of Fate and Going to Acapulco at this exact moment

Impossible to pick just once, but "Tangled Up in Blue," "Like a Rolling Stone," "Sad Eyed Lady," "Hurricane," "Can You please Crawl Out Your Window" and "Tears of Rage" are my immediate choices

I like the Beatles a bit more than the Boys of Beach, I think Brian's band is the tops---really amazing. And finally, I'm liberal. That's it.

Everything on Love & Theft, too, except "Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum," ranks really high on my list. Well, they would if I had a list.

It's great how so many people have totally different favorites; there's hardly any duplicates. That would make Dylan happy, I guess...

For me, there's a couple that haven't changed for awhile:

1. "Lay Lady Lay"
2. "Tangled Up In Blue"
3. "Like A Rolling Stone"

and some specific versions that I like:

4. "It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding" (30th Anniversary Concert)
5. "Girl From The North Country" (Real Live)
6. "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" (Live In Budokan)

and a few newer ones:

7. "Summer Days"
8. "God Knows"
9. "Cold Irons Bound"
10. "Red River Shore" (my new favorite)

Luther, when I first heard "Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum", I didn't care for it. But, Dylan kept playing it, and I kept listening to it. I figured the reason Dylan kept performing it was because he LIKED it, and, maybe because he felt it had some merit, and he wanted it to be heard. It grew on me; it kind of rocks; I like the drums and guitar....

I think the fade-in is what I don't like, odd as that may be as a reason for judgment.

4. "It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding" (30th Anniversary Concert)
I thought the version from "Before the Flood" was definitive. As well as "Don't Think Twice" from the same show; just terrific acoustic versions that are in my Dylan top 10.

My new favorite is "Cross the Green Mountain," haven't got into "Red River" yet...

Yeah, that's a good one. I hadn't heard it til Tell Tale Signs, even though it was released on some soundtrack.
