Dylan Cover #511 Margot Pourailly "Forever Young"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Margot Pourailly is performing a 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:
This is the first time we are hearing Margot Pourailly

Thoughts on Cover:
A soothing cover and delicate version to wrap up our year of Dylan covers.  Thanks for checking them out and supporting the artists we featured. Next month we dive back into Jazz covers of Dylan tunes.
