Dylan Cover #476 Melissa Buckley "Most of the Time" Live

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Melissa Buckley performing a live cover of "Most of the Time" 

Thoughts on Dylan Original
From our first cover take on this tune:
One of the best songs in Dylan's repertoire from any of his era's and also one of the most important, "Most Of The Time" proved Dylan was far from done as an artist.  Showing up on the return to form album Oh Mercy, "Most Of The Time" is a revelation with it's descending bass line and powerfully stark lyrics.  There is a palpable sense of desperation, longing,  sadness, a nervous sense of things are falling apart around me; this tune touches a nerve and makes you stand up and take notice.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is RtBE's first time hearing Melissa Buckley who has posted a few various covers on youtube

Thoughts on Cover:
This is a unique cover that plays with almost spoken word interpretation before singing in a high register. RtBE always digs different takes on Dylan, and this is certainly one.
