Like a Rolling Stone

The Blind Begger has this post about today in musical history.
"Like a Rolling Stone” by Bob Dylan was released as a 45 rpm single on this day in 1965, staying on US charts for nearly three months and topping out at the number two spot. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine declared “Like a Rolling Stone” the greatest song of all time, based on its poll of 172 music industry figures.

A celebrated song from a legendary poet that still resonates (with me at least) after 40+ years.
This is from the era when you could actually understand Dylan. A classic song that still lives.
