My 16-year-old brother loves "Fix You" because it appeared in a scene in You, Me, and Dupree.

Try that one on for size.

I don't agree with you on The Wall but that underlined portion is hilarious and so true!

Haha I have to agree somewhat. I think I only included AB & JT from U2. There is just too much competition from other music to include anything more... in my humblest of opinions.

You've got an epic fail on the musical end, and a mild fail on the movie end, which comes to a total of 1 and a half fails... so you're brother's at least doing something right.

Exactly, but I'm not being too humble about it.

Rick Astley's gotta crack the Top 25.

#29 - Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited



Not going to complain at all that he's here again. I love this album x1,000. Just missed my top 50.

Quote:
How does it feel to have some cavedwelling sourpuss whining at you like Fran Drescher in a third-rate sitcom? I don't like it, no sir. Judas here swaggers like he don't know the humble souls what picked him up and carried him on their shoulders to this stage. Mysticism out of burlap and sterno. This poet who's too hip to be called a poet, let's refer to him as a wiry amoeba, brims with chauvinism, as well as the elitist view that anyone who is not climbing the ladder of success only has themselves to blame -- couldn't be anything more going on (why is oil listed on the stock exchange again?).

Dylweed throws out meaningless riddles like, "the commander-in-chief answers him while chasing a fly" and "the sun's not yellow, it's chicken," and then tosses in an angry retort to people who wonder what's his deal. He's like a Forrest Gump starvation artist who convinces some Hindus to join his hunger strike and then, 60 days in, says, "I'm done starving, you're on your own," and splits, no one the wiser to what the protest had been all about. Cue party whistles.

Well, you sold your Packard to get this far, so now you're out here on this vacant stretch of road, sandwiched between an abandoned gin mill and a cemetery, wondering how this Edgar Allan Poe of ragtime revisionism swindled you with his self-righteous ramblings.

'Like a Rolling' is OK for a overplayed radio classic but this album is not the monument the ratings on this site are making it out to be. I just don't get Bob's lyrics. I don't think they are suppose to make any sense. I talk more sense than Bob after drinking a 24 of Corona.

Unpopular Musical Opinions:

Coldplay > Prince.

And Coldplay are dull as all hell.

His five favorite films are that, Wedding Crashers, Miracle, Old School, and Employee of the Month.

And the only U2 song he likes is "Vertigo."

"Fix You"? "Kiss"? Or the sun?

2 out of 5 ain't bad, I guess.

You should get Al Neri to take him fishing some time.

Purple Rain is okay but I don't get the mass hysteria over it.

I can't remember which Dylan album I had higher in my list, this one or Blood on the Tracks both are awesome though
