Happy Birthday, Bob!

Bob Dylan is eighty today. Good grief. The BBC has made a list of 80 things you may not know about Bob Dylan. You will know most of them but check out #79. How can you pick out a favourite Dylan song amongst so many? I can’t but I’ve always loved this. Unlike so many of his versions of his own songs, this video sounds the way you first heard it all those years ago.

There will be plenty of media coverage. This evening, Chrissie Hynde sings Dylan on Sky Arts (Freeview 11) and on Wednesday Mark Ratcliffe plays listeners’ Dylan choices on Radio2.
