One of the most beloved songs amongst Dylan's fans is Desolation Row (1965). It's rich, surrealistic imagery probably was one of the reasons to why he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016. This live version of the song is illustrated with clips from Renaldo And Clara, a 1978 movie directed by Dylan which today is unavailible. The rectangular patterned jacket that Dylan wears in some scenes was given to him by Dennis Hopper. Hopper used on location when he shot The Last Movie in Peru in 1970.

Girl From The North Country appeared in the first episode of the HBO series Escape At Dannemora earlier this year. The song was recorded in 1963 and released on Dylan's second album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. In 1969 he  re-recorded the song as a duet with Johnny Cash for the album Nashville Skyline. It is this latter version that was used in the show.

Bob Dylan tweeted this a few hours ago:

"Greetings to my fans and followers with gratitude for all your support and loyalty across the years.
This is an unreleased song we recorded a while back that you might find interesting.
Stay safe, stay observant and may God be with you."

“Murder Most Foul” is Dylan’s first original song in eight years and it uses JFK’s assassination as a springboard for a 17 minutes long meditation on, oh well, life, the universe, and everything. In a way a fitting prayer for the times we live in.

One of the lyrics is "Livin'in a nightmare on Elm Street," so it's pretty good.

He lets the bullets that were fired in Dallas spiral into universal paths that I cannot account for in an intelligible way. It is a both reflective and meditative piece that in many ways feels like a prayer. It is not known where or when the song was recorded, but it is has been eight years since Dylan released any original material ("Tempest", 2012). We are lucky to still have him around.

One of the lyrics is "Livin'in a nightmare on Elm Street," so it's pretty good.
President Kennedy was assassinated on Elm Street, but I guess you already knew that.

I basically listened to Dylan songs only for a good three months last summer/fall, mostly 60s stuff but also a lot of "Oh Mercy". I remembered this happening back in 2015 as well, that time it was "Blood on the Tracks".
I got over it eventually but this doesn't happen with any other musician.
