I’ve been trying really hard not to get excited about I’m Not There, in case it turned out to be a self-indulgent disaster. But early reviews suggest that it’s actually rather compelling. That’s great news, because I already love the soundtrack. In no particular order, my favorite tracks include:
Ring Them Bells, by Sufjan Stevens
Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again, by Cat Power
Simple Twist of Fate, by Jeff Tweedy
Going to Acapulco, by Calexico and Jim James
Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, by Antony and the Johnsons
Here’s my question: What are your dream pairings for Dylan covers? I’d like to see Bright Eyes tackle “It Ain’t Me Babe” or “It’s Alright Ma”. Bruce could take “Tangled Up in Blue,” which would fit nicely on Tunnel of Love. I could go on and on…
In other music news, I just discovered the fantastic Prince cover of “A Case of You”. Imagine Joni Mitchell fused with Al Green.
