Bob Dylan - You Ain't Goin' Nowhere (Live 1997)

Bob Dylan - You Ain't Goin' Nowhere (Live)


I guess I'll continue with the trend of crappy singers, this time with Bob Dylan playing a deep cut that he wrote for The Byrds, "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere". This song was written after his 1966 motorcycle accident, and has recently become one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs. The first version I heard wasn't even Bob Dylan's recording, but I wasn't surprised to learn that he was actually the one who wrote it. Seems he wrote everything.

Anyway, Bob Dylan's voice isn't exactly the best, but the song still sounds good, as we see him playing lead guitar and shredding it a little bit. I shouldn't need to mention how much of an inspiration Mr. Dylan has been to music and art in general, but I will say that two of his songs were in my American Literature text book, presented as poetry.

Up Next: Neil Young - Hey Hey, My My (Live Farm Aid 1985)
