It’s like my whole life never happened: the best Dylan covers

I updated this list of my favorite Dylan covers to include Bettye LaVette and Craig Finn, the latter doing his best on a courtly Infidels ballad dismissed as sexist a few times (“Don’t Fall Apart On Me Tonight” is the real horror, as is “Is Your Love in Vain”).

2. Rod Stewart – Tomorrow is a Long Time
3. Siouxsie and the Bansheers – This Wheel’s On Fire
4. George Harrison – If Not For You

6. Calexico and Jim James – Goin’ to Acapulco
7. Bryan Ferry – It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue
8. PJ Harvey – Highway 61 Revisited
9. Rosanne Cash – Girl From the North Country
