You Belong to Me

This is my favorite Bob Dylan recording. I’ve heard Like a Rolling Stone, Mr. Tambourine Man et al. They’re great. I prefer this, even with the dialogue from Natural Born Killers dubbed over the ending. I love it.

  1. Yes, the dubbed-in dialogue has grown on me. But its function is not to highlight the poignancy of Dylan’s vocal, but to temper it – dylan’s helium lament from the silver jet almost flies over our heads completely with its soaring sadness.
