Meyer's Bob Dylan Birthday Blog Party!

Happy Birthday Meyer! (Progeny of Amelia and Zentrout!) Here's the promised Bob Dylan Party on A&S:
Here's the Invocation: A great version of Forever Young w/ The Band

Let's get the ugliness out of the way. Don't watch the video, just listen to the song.

Let's really kick it off with the Ballad of the Thin Man:

Bob Dylan gets ziggy with it:

Here's a Bob Dylan imitator doing "Senor." I like this one more because the era of his Bob Dylan imitation is better than the era Bob was in when the song was originally recorded on Street Legal.

The Classic:

Now here's "Weird" Al Yankovic's palindromic take on Subterranean Homesick Blues (Gosh he's so "weird"!)

And last, but not least, here is a The Netherlands' own version of Bob: Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you Armand, singing his biggest hit "Ben ik te min."

---Love, Uncle Dan. Wish I could be there to celebrate with you.

Thank you A&S bloggers! I cannot think of a more fitting tribute to my son, who will, I am sure, be the voice of his generation. Course, right now, that voice sounds a lot like: "dada dada blah ooh whaz."
