Now that we've posted our favorite Dylan covers, it occurred to me that it would be fun to come up with the Dylan covers we WISH we could hear or wish had been done! Any song by any artist, living, dead, retired or otherwise!

Dylan songs have been recorded in near definitive versions by other artists. Some of those "other artist" versions don't seem like covers. That emphasizes Dylan's fundamental role as a songwriter. These are my favorites. Welcome yours.

The anti-war song list brought this topic to mind. I can think of a few, but I have a feeling that Woodstock birthed more than these. Did any one you attend?

Same idea as the 60's sing along list-- these are 12 songs you can NEVER RESIST singing along with. It is physically impossible (as shown by years of testing at MIT and the jukebox at Mel's Drive In)! Use carefully.

A playlist of 60's rock and pop songs I love to sing along with in the car. The tracks have one thing in common--a refrain of some kind that you can sing along with whether or not you know the rest of the lyrics!

Music created for a 10 year work anniversary party. The list was limited by songs I have in iTunes. Criteria for selection involved several factors. Some themes should be apparent.
