Dylan Cover #393 Band of Skulls - "It' Ain't Me, Babe"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Band of Skulls playing "It Ain't Me, Babe"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
One of the best Dylan songs because it is universal, to the point, lyrical, smirking, self-centered and a perfect statement. Dylan has written lots of songs that can be covered well (as evident by this series) but "It Ain't Me, Babe" fits perhaps better then almost any other one into a huge variety of styles. That is because we have all been in the singers position one time or another...and it is a damn good song.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
While Band of Skulls have hovered around our universe, we have yet to review them on RtBE.

Thoughts on Cover:
A stark simple arraignment which grows mildly at the end, the focus is strictly on the vocals which are solid. I think it is a pretty bad ass cover with solid singing.
