Bob Dylan the Weatherman – A playlist

You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows
– Bob Dylan (Subterranean Homesick Blues)

Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.

Bob Dylan uses the weather both as a metaphor and in a literary sense, he is especially fond of rain and wind.

“I said “Fee, fie, fo, fum, Cassius Clay, here I come

A number is a mathematical object used to count, measure, and label. The original examples are the natural numbers 1, 2, 3, and so forth. A notational symbol that represents a number is called a numeral. In addition to their use in counting and measuring, numerals are often used for labels (as with telephone numbers), for ordering (as with serial numbers), and for codes (as with ISBNs). In common usage, the term number may refer to a symbol, a word, or a mathematical abstraction.

Bob Dylan songs that could have been movies – a playlist

Bob Dylan songs that could have been movies – a playlist

The stories these songs tell might be happy or sad, truth or fiction. But they’ll all have one thing in common: They makes us see a film inside our head, or evoke a mood that feels like a movie . We follow the stories and identify with the characters, and like real movies they are sometimes linear (like most movies) and sometimes the structure is more experimental, like Reservoir Dogs or Satyricon. A few times we cannot say why they feel cinematic but they do.

Here are my choices:

All along the watchtower – Bob Dylan (here is a great live version from 6th of June 1999 in Colarado Springs) this could obviously be made into Euro-western with a prison break theme :
