Artists Talk About Their Favorite Bob Dylan Songs

Stereogum discussed Bob Dylan with 80 different artists to get their takes on their favorite songs of his. This is a really cool piece to celebrate the bard's 80th birthday. 

There are some RtBE favorite artists like the first one on the list Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah who chose "Only A Pawn In Their Game" and goes deep with the song, really making som illuminating points. 

It is a joy to read CSaA go deep as well as other artists like David Byrne talking about "Murder Most Foul", Margo Price recounting her first time listening to "last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie", Paterson Hood discussing one of our all-time favorites "Blind Willie McTell" and Will Oldham discussing "Brownsville Girl". 

Check out the article and listen to "Only A Pawn In Their Game" live form the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom
