    Default Bob Dylan and his delivery

    Bob is without a doubt a great song writer, performer and stage presence..........but he has had an odd genesis............not many people have had greater success with people covering your songs than you have had doing them yourself.

    I just wondered are there any Dylan songs where his original eclipses the covers? If so , what are they ?

    Nice to be able to go back to trust and friendship!!!!!!!!!

    It's a mixed up sensation this being alive
    Oh! it wears a man down into the ground
    It's the strangest elation
    I can't describe it
    Oh it leaves a man weary
    It makes a man frown.

    can think of quite a few where the reverse is true, but I'll have to come across something.

    Maybe none of them in terms of performance.

    But all of them in terms of composition.
