#82 Bob Dylan – Subterranean Homesick Blues

Happy Birthday Bob! And what better way to celebrate your 72nd birthday than with a reminder of what you used to look like nearly 50 years ago? The famous clip that accompanies Subterranean Homesick Blues – which was filmed in London as part of a Dylan documentary – is often credited as having been the birth of the modern music video, just one of the many ways Dylan’s influence can be felt all over the music we listen to in 2013. Some of zeitgeisty lyrical references may seem a little obscure now, but the music and the video which launched a thousand parodies still kick bucketloads of ass.
