A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin's eyes
I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain't doing me any good
I'm in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain't no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he's got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I've been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I've been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can't win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I hurt easy, I just don't show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I'm in love with a woman who don't even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I'm not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

Wow, a Dylan song where his singing really isn't too awful and I kinda like. Whodathunkit?

So glad Bill keeps spinning this quirky gem.
One of Bobbie's best, for sure!
I used to care, but . . .

btw, here's a fun video using clips from the movie:

Genius, and what, only 38 years after he first started out?  How many musical acts can say that they've won an Oscar & Golden Globe, a citation from the Pulitzer committee, and a Nobel prize?  Oh....wait...I'm sure he's gotten a shit load of Grammies too.

His Nobel Prize in Literature was "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."  Yup, that says it all.

Except it doesn't say LONG LIVE RP!!

So very true COJohn - from a likeminded WAJoe - in fact this might be my fav of Bob's tunes (an Oscar winner at that) and one that I feel I can share with others that aren't "fans" of Bob's varied work. 

As one who wasn't a fan of Bob Dylan until around the turn of the century, and sure there's a lot not to like about his work/style whatever - you could spend a lot of time trying to read and interpret his lyrics.  It's a very vast and deep well. 

Happy Friday to all my fellow RPsters and long live BillG & RebbecaG



going through books to keep or not. this song playing, as up floats a Life commemorative on "September 11-- And After. saw Dylan live Nov. 2001. There's a reason he won the Nobel.

Seems I really like BD as long as he doesn't touch that harmonica. This one actually reminds me of Leonard Cohen, which I consider a compliment for Dylan :)

CONGRATULATIONS MR. DYLAN

YOU ARE THE FIRST NEW NOBEL PRIZE OF A NEW ERA ON NOBEL PRIZE.


great movie great great song / really good video bonus feature of this song on the modern times disc/dvd set
Things change...especially when your on the road. Bob is on the road touring. The never ending tour. 

Therefore, things are changing. It's all about space and time.   

Wolford said, "And, yes, Things Have Changed is one of Bob's major songs of the past 20 years."

 

I fully agree and bumped it from an 8 to a 9+,...maybe a 10.  Dylan at his most insightful best.  Truly a comment on these perplexing times. 


Don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through...
But, but, but...where's Bob's photo? 

Can't we put his mug on the cover and just call him "Alias"? Get it? 

Ha! 
Frogs are changing their skin, and I don't mind.
Thanks Bill really nice song. 
More apropos now than ever — and what a wicked, killer song, sung in that inimitable, immortal lazy drawled-out style of his... Love it!
the video on this with Dylan is very good !
As for Wonder Boys, both the book and the film are outstanding.  Story goes that after the success of L.A. Confidential, the director, Curtis Hanson, was told he should use his new found clout to make the film he's always wanted to make, since he might not have another chance.  He chose to do Wonder Boys.  The screenwriters completely captured the essence of the novel, knowing what to keep and what to toss.
And, yes, Things Have Changed is one of Bob's major songs of the past 20 years.  
I love it when he does straight ahead rock'n'roll.
Ah - that's better. We just had Tracey Chapman, Peter Gabriel and James Vincent McMorrow. Thought I was at a yuppie dinner party for a moment there.

Film was good, yes. I haven't read the book. Kavalier and Klay was mostly fantastic.

 
The Wonderboys book was terrific--typical early Chabon with loose ends all over the place. Agree about Kavalier and Klay, an epic story where he pretty much hews to one plot line with a central theme, something he ordinarily treats casually. Summerland aims at a younger audience, but is similarly epic in scope with a wide variety of subject matter. The Yiddish Policemen's Union, The Final Solution, and Gentlemen of the Road are all great fun. I was little disappointed with Telegraph Avenue, even if it did evoke a West Oakland/East Berkeley that I know fairly well.

And the premise of "Kavalier and Klay" sounded completely idiotic. 

A good Dylan song..."I used to care, but things have changed." Yeah, know that feeling.

And for those who may not have noticed, when he says "The next 60 seconds will feel like an eternity" he is counting down the remaining time in the song as there are indeed only 60 seconds left.
 
Having read this comment a number of times, I finally had the opportunity to confirm that the last 60 seconds does indeed finish the song. 
ALL TRUE....{#Cheers}
Great. And I very much enjoy the entire Wonder Boys CD. You just never know what's coming.


The more Dylan RP plays, the better Jrzy's crops grow.
LOVE this Dylan song. A great Cynicism song.

Dylan is just so hot right now. Yeah rough voice but lyrics incredible. Cohen also, it's not an either or situation, both are incredible. I call Dylans latest works Roadhouse music, most off it is based on dance rhythms that's why my foot taps so much. 
 

Both of them about as good as it gets.

I'm not real interested in who likes Dylan and who doesn't.  That debates been going on for approaching 50 years!  That said, very few folks would come up with lines that warm my heart like:

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet

Putting her in a wheelbarrow and wheeling her down the street

You go, Bobby!


Love this song...

...don´t like dylan,but this song....i do NOT use the PSD.....
It's nice to hear Bob Dylan returning to his blues/folk roots, and that his voice has become deeper and more tuneful. He really is a cracking blues artist. 8 from the foot-tappin' back-to-basics shit-kicking Nottingham jury.
Great song, great movie...

Watched "Walk Hard - The Dewey Cox Story" last night.  The parodies of Dylan songs when Dewey was in his "Dylan phase" are utterly hilarious.
 
Those of you who aren't Dylan fans will like it.  Those of us who are, and aren't sensitive about it, will like it as well.  


Nice music!

Bottom line - the quality of the instrument has little relationship to how well it can be played.

 
Cheers to you both! It's nice to hear a thoughtful comment on Zimmy's stuff. Breath of fresh air, that is. Thanks

I hear Leonard Cohen.

oh brother!  This song is fantastic.  Maybe some of you need to see the video to really appreciate it!  It's great too.
Hmmm ... there goes Bob singing again.

Just goes to show that some things haven't changed.  I've seen Dylan live twice, couldn't recognize a single song.  Still love his work, though.

I saw Dylan last weekend at the MTS Centre. He sings like Tom Waits now. All gravely and mumbly.
I couldn't recognize a single song, even though his lineup included several classics. {#Confused}

 Paul Simon called Bob Dylan the greatest song-writer of all time. Now that's a hell'ava compliment, but Dylan
is an icon... I love "Modern Times" can't stop spinning that CD. He was great on Wilbury's I and II.
I guess I'm just Tangled Up in Blue. If his "Watchtower" doesn't reflect these times, I don't know what song would.
Thanks for almost 50 years of great music Mr. Zimmerman ..thanks very much..

I agree,

Most Dylan makes my stomach turn but there are a couple of his songs (this one and 'Tangled Up in Blue) that I actually like.

{#Bananajam}{#Nyah}  He just leaves so many in his dust.
Wow. I hear this and everything else seems so superficial...
:curtain: :shhh: :boohoo: :clap: :dance: :hug:
Not a Dylan fan, but man, I love this song.
Got white skin, got assasin eyes, I'm starin' up into the saphire-tempered skies. The man is tuned in to this day. Love this song, the imagery, and it's length. If you have this tune on cd you can check the song runtime late in the song when Bob sings, "The next sixty seconds may feel like an eternity...," the tune plays for one minute thereafter. Maybe a coincidence, but my contribution to the creepy, obsessive "let's listen to Pink Floyd albums backwards, synched to the Wizard of Oz" trend.
It's so good to hear Bob writing and performing things from his heart, instead of simply going through the motions, like so many of those old, washed-up geezers. It may not be the best stuff he's ever done, but it's honest.
I think this is the song that won him the oscar for best song in a movie (wownderboys) For me the songthat told me he was back on form then along came 'Time out of mind' album followed by the 'love and theft' and his last one 'Modern times' all three are amazing piecs of work.Doesn't have so much to 'say' but is just having fun.Great stuff.8/10

Lots of performers can sing, but Dylan has something to SAY.
Is Van Morrison slowly strangling him?...or does he have a boiled sweet stuck in his throat?

i searched for a long time for this song thinking it was on a dylan album but it isn't. I saw the film once just to hear the song,not bad film.I think he won the oscar for this one right? Love him.

Hmmmm. I never really followed Rolling Stone and I was listening to this long before I got onto RadioParadise. Yet strangely, for all that, I seem to have developed a high opinion of this song without all that input. Mayhaps I like it just because I do?

a bit off your point...but i have always thought that you shouldn't see the rating on the song until you have rated it yourself. ratings beget ratings, unfortunately. you're far more apt to rate something higher when it is already there. kudos for you rating them as you see fit.

Try ''palate''--unless you spilled fruit crates in the loading dock.
Great song and a pretty good movie too, starring a beautiful pre-Scientology Katie Holmes. The deluxe version of "Modern Times" comes with a DVD of special features, one of which is the video for this song, placing Bob in various scenes of the movie. It's excellent.
No one digs Dylan for the virtuosity of the vocals...
More maracas!
Oh, come on. Great lyrics, solid band,- it's Bob Dylan. It's great. It actually tells a story with no filler. I think he's great. Still great after all these years.
Hello Mahler, Read what you wrote.....maybe listen to "Freewheelin'", or "Another Side of", and then decide if you like him or not..
