I'm walking through streets that are dead
Walking, walking with you in my head
My feet are so tired, my brain is so wired
And the clouds are weeping

Did I hear someone tell a lie?
Did I hear someone's distant cry?
I spoke like a child; you destroyed me with a smile
While I was sleeping

I'm sick of love but I'm in the thick of it
This kind of love I'm so sick of it

I see, I see lovers in the meadow
I see, I see silhouettes in the window
I watch them 'til they're gone and they leave me hanging on
To a shadow

I'm sick of love; I hear the clock tick
This kind of love; I'm love sick

Sometimes the silence can be like the thunder
Sometimes I wanna take to the road and plunder
Could you ever be true?
I think of you
And I wonder

I'm sick of love; I wish I'd never met you
I'm sick of love; I'm trying to forget you

Just don't know what to do
I'd give anything to
Be with you

Why all the brouhaha  over this guy? 
There is an album called "Dylan Country" and it consists of 15 different country artists, each doing a song, e.g.,  Cash, Jennings, Byrds. 

Emmylou Harris and Kitty Wells covers are utterly fantastic. .

While it might seem like a funny question, the simple fact is that NO ONE has been covered MORE THAN Mr. Bob Dylan.  Some here have tried to list them out - it would take a very long time to complete the entire list, and even the (somewhat smaller) list of those that "can" sing.  Nonetheless, as I often say about Bob's singing, it's not always what you should hear (a "good" singing voice") when the song is about love loss, longing, etc. 

I wont try to persuade anyone else, other than to share this Slate article. https://www.slate.com/articles/arts/music_box/2017/03/bob_dylan_is_a_great_singer.html

Peace, Love and RnR - not always in that order!


 


overproduced and muddled
I've never heard Dylan's version, but I can't imagine it being as interesting or as creative as this version.  And ANY singer sounds better than Dylan, so there is that.  It's a 7 for me.
Kind of liked it better when performed by Lili von Shtupp

The original is one of my least favorite Dylan songs, but this cover is just fantastic.

Well Dylan isn't RnR, so we good.
Bit of trivia: That's the son of Los Lobos' David Hidalgo smashing on the drums.
And there I was wondering what this new stuff from Ian Anderson was {#Ask}

It would sound quite confusing if they did.

Stevie Wonder, Adele, Van Morrison also
Yikes! {#Cool}
Wow, a lot of complaints about this song. I really enjoy Mariachi El Bronx and think they're fantastic (and have a fantastic story about how they came to be—heard it on NPR). Gotta admit though...I really do not much care for Dylan. So, this cover was an improvement for me!

But you have to admit that it was a really funny question...

Swing and a miss, but at least he stepped up to the plate.
Love this take.  Can Mariachi El Bronx please cover all of his songs - especially since Jimi Hendrix isn't around to follow up the awesomeness of "All Along the Watchtower" with other covers?
Why he's so cruel with this fine song? {#Fire}

Those horns are awesome...  this is a dang good cover...  love it...
 
I love this song but this is horrible.
c'mon folks...get outta your box...this is really pretty cool...
Has anyone with a good voice ever covered Dylan?

This is almost a cool cover...


Bob Dylan has a brand new album out called Tempest...  for details about it, look here...
 


Okay, this is starting to sound pretty good...  but I am still not rating it...  grumble grumble grumble...

 
A 5 for the horns, but the rest of the song is killin' me!  {#Eek}  
I don't slam much. But - c'mon, play the original, which is tremendous (and which has nothing to do w the chimes of freedom).

This version? Like food poisoning on a bad acid trip in a very scary third world cuidad.
Well, this is unfortunate.
I love the Dylan version of this, well, I mean Dylan's original version....this guys version, well if your stuck in some foreign karoke bar maybe....

Yes, I understand what you mean... I confess the horns are starting to actually sound good...  grumble grumble grumble...

 

Good stuff. I too cannot get it out of my head.
Not sure why they have Dylan on the cover of their album though.
;-)

barf...

 
Easy now. No need to be so serious b'y.
This is on the very short list of worst crap heard on RP since I joined eight years ago. It's a cover parody, right? But Bill, you just described it without editorial remarks. I'm shocked and disappointed.
Fresh, Inventive, Quirky. What's not to like? 8
Can we just call this the "Stick Your Head in the Oven Set" and be done with it already?

Hmm, good to hear these guys on here, but definitely not the best of their material in my view. Yeah, I know, I should upload something better...

Agreed. This does not work for me.

 

Me too - dire.

Whoa!  A scathing review from romeo.  Has the universe just been knocked out alignment, or what?

Personally, I think the song was pretty cool though, in its own right, regardless of comparisons with the original.

 

Bill Frisell has a new album out that is all jazz covers of John Lennon songs...  his album is called All We Are Saying...  I have heard a few cuts, and they sound yucky...  they are boring—  great music to listen to when you are trying to sleep...  but I am overall in awe of Bill Frisell and terribly disappointed with his new Lennon album...  here's some of Frisell's great stuff...  this is a Bob Dylan cover, from 1993—

Hmmm... I sense a strong disturbance in the force. It is as if a thousand "10" ratings are suddenly accompanied by a new vote a bit more in the middle.

(Check) No they haven't, the universe is safe for now. Wink

I don't often comment on the songs here.  I feel the need.  I actually like this.  I like it as much as the original maybe even more with time!

Not feeling it - Please give me the original, thank you


Extremely offbeat band- they are out there at like 5-sigma... I like  'em.
This album has great covers. I recommend it.
sounds forced to me. 3
nice {#Cool}
