Interactive live top fifty Dylan songs

Blind Willie McTell is the most popular Dylan song. This is the result of an interactive live mind map session asking readers of this blog to name their top 7 favourite Dylan songs. (Dylan songs were ordered from 1 to 7. 1 for the highest category rhodium -most precious metal -, 2 for the second highest category platinum and so on).This resulted in a  top 50 of favourite Dylan songs.

The top 5 is:

  1. Blind Willie McTell
  2. Like a Rolling Stone
  3. Desolation Row
  4. Not dark yet
  5. Visions of Johanna

The value of this top 50? Tom wrote me: “This is my top 7 right now, but ask me tomorrow and it may be completely changed.” Well, this will apply to many of us.

In total there are nearly 48 (comments and e-mails) top 7 lists made (not all yet processed). Keep coming back for changes.
