Dylan Cover #464 Miley Cyrus "It Ain't Me, Babe" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Miley Cyrus 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 than 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:
Miley Cyrus is a pop star who can deliver the pop goods, "Wrecking Ball" is a hell of a pop song.

Thoughts on Cover:

January is the month where we dive into Jazz, we try to make it more mainstream and pop to blatantly court clicks.  Doesn't get more mainstream for Dylan covers than Ms. Cyrus and she does a damn fine job covering this tune.
