Dylan Cover #465 Nora Jones "Forever Young" Live

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Nora Jones is performing a live cover of "Forever Young" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we covered a cover of this tune.
"Forever Young" is a classic. A track that Dylan released two different versions of on Planet Waves, and a song tons of artists use to close out sets or play encores. Without doing research it has to be one of the top 5 most covered songs of his, and yet it was never one of RtBE's favorites. It is a great song, Bob has always treated it a bit sterile though and this is a flaw in Dylan; artists would give their whole careers to write a song like this and he treats it like an out take, Last Waltz version not withstanding.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I always felt Nora Jones was great Sunday morning music.

Thoughts on Cover:
A direct solo piano cover which really lets Jones show off her vocal range.
