Bobby's Best...Sort of

For this blog, I’ll routinely do Bob Dylan lists because I know more about Dylan than any other artist and also because, maybe more importantly in a selfish sense, he’s my favorite. I’ve ranked all of his albums before, but never before haveI tried a massive list about his songs. Trying to do a Fifty Best… Bob Dylan Songs” would be impossible but I can go halfway and have a list on my Fifty Favorite… Bob Dylan Songs, listed in alphabetical order and is judged only by the official studio release.

Of course not all the songs listed are fantastic (“Billy #1,” for instance), but I’m not judging them on how good they are, only on how much I like them, which is really the only way “Joey” could make a positive Dylan list.

Oh, and I made it 55 instead of 50 because it seems more fitting considering the blog’s name. Anywho, to the list!
