Here is my favorite Bob Dylan song. Yes, this is a cover of a ’67 song by Dylan and while Dylan is a great songwriter, his performances and singing abilities… well, let’s just say this version rocks (and it’s the most famous take on it). Plus, when Dylan performs it, he performs it more like this version than his original. And the opening of this track just screams “Vietnam War movie,” doesn’t it?
