The 30 Greatest Bob Dylan Songs: Your Turn

“We always did feel the same, we just saw it from a different point of view.”

“We always did feel the same, we just saw if it from a different point of view.”

Thank you for reading American Songwriter’s inaugural list, the 30 Greatest Bob Dylan Songs of All Time. We hope you can respect us going the maverick route, and we’ve sure enjoyed hearing your feedback along the way.

Ultimately, these aren’t really the top 30 Bob Dylan songs; they’re the top 30 Bob Dylan songs at any given moment. The truth is, nearly every Bob Dylan song is worthy of being regarded as the greatest Bob Dylan song ever. Except for maybe “All The Tired Horses.” That one comes in second.

Some of you may approve of our attempts at combining Dylan- and Numer-ology (Compare and contrast our list with Mojo’s for a dissenting point of view.) Others would say we’re blinder than Willie McTell, picking “Dear Landlord” over “I Shall Be Released” and “to Ramona” over “Brownsville Girl.”

Well, you know….

“Half of the people can be part right all of the time,
Some of the people can be all right part of the time.
But all the people can’t be all right all the time.”

I think Mark Knopfler said that.

“I’ll let you be in my list if I can be in yours.”

We said that.

What would your list of the greatest Bob Dylan songs look like? What songs deserved to be on our list but weren’t, and why? What are some of your all-time favorite Dylan lyrics? Chime in below.

  1. I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form.

    In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm

    was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail,
    Poisoned in the bushes an blown out on the trail,
    Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn.

    Come in, she said,
    Ill give you shelter from the storm.

    Absolutely beautiful, really miss this one in the list.
    But apart from that, thank you very much for the blog, it ‘s been a lot of fun and really interesting to read

  2. While beauty does walk a razor’s edge, here are some songs that I might have put on the list:

    It Ain’t Me, Babe
    Love Minus Zero/No Limit
    Tombstone Blues
    Highway 61 Revisited
    Positively 4th Street
    Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again
    All You Have To Do Is Dream
    Open The Door Homer
    I Shall Be Released
    I’m Not There
    This Wheel’s On Fire
    Rock Salt N’ Nails
    I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine
    All Along The Watchtower
    I Pity The Poor Immigrant
    Wicked Messenger
    Time Passes Slowly

    Brownsville Girl
    Delia
    Jack-A-Roe
    High Water
    Sugar Baby

  3. Thanks again (I posted some possible alternatives to this list in comments to, I think, #4). As I have said to a number of people over the years as one small way of explaining my Bob fascination, who else could write a song whose lyrics contain the word “previous”? (Changing of the Guards) Have you ever heard that word in another song by anyone? Maybe you have, but I have not. This might mean nothing to you, it says a lot to me.

  4. Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands,
    Blind Willie McTell,
    I’m Not There,
    Positively Fourth Street,
    I Shall Be Released,
    Forever Young,

    Song to Woody,
    I’ll Keep It With Mine,
    Maggie’s Farm,
    Girl From the North Country,
    Just Like Tom Thumbs Blues,
    When the Ship Comes In,
    Boots of Spanish Leather,
    Goin’ to Acapulco

  5. I don’t think it was fully “completed”, and I’ve only found one version of it (the clip from Eat The Document), and it may just be because it is exactly where I’m at right now, BUT it would defiantly make my list..

    I Can’t Leave Her Behind

  8. I did’nt seem to see his Oscar Winner “Thing Have Changed”. I am a huge Dylan fan,
    I can’t imagine that song isn’t listed. You can bet it’s on his list. It was from the movie “The Wonder Boys”.

  12. There is one song I haven’t seen mentioned.

    It’s ”Joey”.

    I’ll go to the grave defending ‘’Joey’’ from ‘’Desire’’ as one of the finest songs Dylan ever did. True, it might not be historically accurate and YES it DOES glorify a convicted criminal but godddamn…..Lay back on your (big brass) bed, pop in the album and skip to the sixth track. Hit play and get ready to be transported back to ‘’Red Hook Brooklyn in the year of Who-Knows-When’’ and ‘’open up your eyes to the tune of an accordion’’.

    The whole song is dripping with atmosphere and the lyrics are absolutely exquisite.
    It’s even got jokes:

    “What time is it” said the judge to Joey when they met
    “Five to ten” said Joey. The judge says, “That’s exactly what you get”.

    It’s deliciously endless eleven minutes are filled with nuggets like this. Also, the singing is top notch. The backing vocals by Emmylou Harris are never better suited. Her slightly whiney voice with Dylan’s nasal tones make the chorus sound like it is supposed to sound; like an eulogy for a lamentable outlaw. And we all know Dylan loved outlaws. (I’ll also go to the grave defending Dylan’s work on Patt Garrett and Billy The Kid)

  13. Oh man, I hate this kind of thing. I’ll add 30 now but 8 seconds from now there will be another 30 I wish I’d have said. I’m also going to try and avoid anything on any Greatest Hits albums if possible. So as of this very moment, in no specific order…

    “Bob Dylan’s Dream”
    “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You”
    “Mississippi”
    “Sugar Baby”
    “Standing In The Doorway”
    “Love Is Just A Four Letter Word”
    “Never Say Goodbye”
    “Talking New York”
    “Isis”
    “Trouble In Mind”
    “Where Are You Tonight (Journey Through Dark Heat)”
    “What Can I Do For You”
    “Dignity”
    “Spanish Harlem Incident”
    “She Belongs To Me”
    “Tell Me That It Isn’t True”
    “Buckets Of Rain”
    “Went To See The Gypsy”
    “When The Deal Goes Down”
    “I And I”
    “I’ll Remember You”
    “Under Your Spell”
    “Shooting Star”
    “It’s All Good”
    “Cats In The Well”
    “Temporary Like Achilles”
    “Song To Woody”
    “Restless Farewell”
    “Dear Landlord”
    “It Takes Alot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry””

  14. Nice list, but it’s easy to add at least 20 songs that are just as good:

    One Of Us Must Know
    Black Diamond Bay
    Absolutely Sweet Marie

    Never Say Goodbye

  17. I feel a need to stand up for “All the Tired Horses,” as I love that song. With its lush melody and swelling orchestration I always thought it’d provide a great soundtrack for some unmade Western movie.

  19. Its tough to argue with “Joey”, but my personal is “Black Diamond Bay.” The begining and end to the song are pure Dylan.

    Up on the white veranda
    She wears a necktie and a Panama hat.
    Her passport shows a face
    From another time and place
    She looks nothin’ like that.

    After learning how people react when death is near, Dylan turns the song upside down with the last line:

    And I never did plan to go anyway
    To Black Diamond Bay.

    The only reason to discount the Desire album is Dylan co-wrote all the songs with Jacques Levy, but I consider this by far the best album he ever made.

  20. I just want to give props to Evan, his articles are not only amazing but also absolutely hilarious! Great use of quotes.

    Also, “Buckets of Rain” and “I threw it all away” are amazing songs that need to be mentioned.

  21. Whenever I see lists like this I always think it is better to make my own list rather than complain about someone else’s. So here’s mine (at this particular moment in time).

  23. @ John Wesley Harding:

    Black Diamond Bay can only be described as a ”gem”. Those first lines alone blow my mind. When you hear something like ”And all of the remnants of her recent past are scattered in the wild wind” you realize you’re listening to Bob-fucking-Dylan and that nobody ever comes close to his lyrics (even though this was co-written) and delivery.

    Desire is my favourite album aswell, so many awesome stories and his best vocals ever. (I mean, man listen to ”Isis” who else sings like Dylan? I have never heard anybody sing like that, except Dylan. And I think everybody else would make those intonations sound ridiculous)

    Also, check out ”Catfish” and ”Golden Loom” from the Bootleg series. Awesome Desire outtakes, anything that is played with the Desire set is awesome, really. I wish ít had been even longer, even though it’s almost an hour long.

  24. I think you should make this an official web-site, people choosing their favourite Dylan songs, don’t think any 2 people would submit the same list, so many released and unreleased and alternative versions of songs to choose from, its extraordinary stuff.

  26. I’d like to see them do a Top 30 Lou Reed list.

    As I’ve mentioned a few times, I prefer Reed to Dylan in most respects – and especially as a writer.

  27. Brad, think you are at the wrong web-site, we’re dealing with the greatest here, I’m sure there’s some Lou Reed web-site elsewhere doing something similar, not at all interested in fact.
    Dylan is so far ahead beyond of Reed it’s not funny!

  28. The best Dylan song is the one being played at the time, or sung, or hummed, or being arranged.

    “Like a Rolling Stone” is still my favorite. “Winterlude” is another as is “I’ll be your Baby Tonight”.

    I could go on and on. Maybe it should be the Top 40…

  29. Flo, considering that you’re unable to properly punctuate a short paragraph, you might want to take it easy. Since you are so interested in fact, maybe you could give me some “fact” showing Dylan to be greater than Reed.

  30. I can’t tell you how great it is to go through everyone’s list and discover and rediscover some great Dylan songs. I agree with @Proman, Nashville Skyline is a great album and features Norman Blake on guitar. I wanted to throw another song out that I have not seen anyone mention:

    Sante Fe

    I first heard this song on the Bob Dylan Sirius Radio Hour with Michael Tearson. Unfortunately the show was replaced with an hour from Dylan himself, which is great except he does play his own songs.

    Sante Fe can be found on the Bootlegs Series Volume 1-3. the version is a little grainy, but still a classic.

  31. “Sante Fe” is a great tune that I liken to “I’m Not There” in that some of this phrasing is mumbled, but the sheer beauty of the performance provides all the meaning the song needs anyway. I think “I’m Not There” is better, just for the record.

    THE GENUINE BASEMENT TAPES, to me, show Dylan at his best. Some of his most profound and least pretentious lyrics come from that collection, and his singing is at its most pure. One of Dylan’s greatest faults is that his talent is superior to his understanding of his talent. That he is unable to understand what makes THE GENUINE BASEMENT TAPES greater than some of his more heralded works serves as the best example – even better than him not including works like “Blind Willie McTell” on albums.

  32. Brad, i sure don’t need no “facts” showing Dylan to be greater than Reed.
    Dylan will go down in history as the greatest songwriter ever, Reed would go down on anything!!.
    Lets get back to the real conversation here i.e your 30 greatest Bob Dylan songs.

  33. “Brad, i sure don’t need no “facts” showing Dylan to be greater than Reed.
    Dylan will go down in history as the greatest songwriter ever, Reed would go down on anything!!.
    Lets get back to the real conversation here i.e your 30 greatest Bob Dylan songs.”

    In other words you can’t possibly back anything.

  35. Thsi is a fun string of comments.

    Like someone said, the particularl songs can change, depending on what I have heard recently and what connects with what is going on in my personal ife at the time. (His songs can really get stuck in your head sometimes can’t they?)

    A couple I dond’t think I saw but cherish:

    North Country blues
    I Am a Lonesome Hobo

    I love strumming out Dylan tunes on my guitar and singing along with myself.

    My heartfelt thanks to Bob for all the richness he has added to my life.

  36. “The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face” – The greatest love song ever written

    “He did it in Las Vegas, and he can do it here” – Whoever “he” is, says more about you than whatever Bob was thinking at the time……

  37. (1)

    Black Diamond Bay– #1 for me would be almost any song from desire but Black Diamond Bay goes at the top today

    (2)

    Joey I know people think writing a song about a gangster is endorsing a criminal life but W/ the advent of Rap we now see how mild it is . He heard about Joey Gallo through Det. Lennie Briscoe A.K.A. Jerry Orbach and I know most baby boomers love the show Law & Order .

    (3)

    Girl from the North Country w/ Johnny Cash on Nashville Skyline I would like to think the song is about the Adirondack in NYS which is called the North Country I travel 4 hours at least 4 times in the winter and stay for the 3 day weekend or as long as I can then 6 weeks in the summer and go to “Friends Lake” near Chestertown, NY w/ all my family and 4 other families my family and the other have gone for 30 yrs and when I hear the song it warms my heart and brings the best memory like the first smell of pine sap needles and the hot air. Ok that was three I guess I’ll stop with that if anyone has stories of what a song means to them i’d love to hear them I think that what makes Dylan so amazing everyone interprets the songs different and has their own memories attached to them.
