Bob Dylan's Top 10 Songs of All-Time

Rolling Stone Readers Pick Their 10 Favorite Bob Dylan Songs From 'Forever Young' to 'Like a Rolling Stone,' the Dylan tunes you like the most

In the May 26th issue of Rolling Stone, a panel of experts selected their top 70 Bob Dylan songs in honor of the songwriter's 70th birthday. Last weekend we asked our readers to name their own top 10. The results weren't extremely different  though they did show a little less interest in his post-Blood On The Tracks work. We tried to pair all of these with videos of Dylan performing the tracks, but the Dylan camp has been aggressive about removing clips from YouTube, which used to be an unbelievable treasure trove of rare Dylan footage. Now it's tough to find much more than random guys in their basement playing "Mr. Tambourine Man" and a handful of clips that the Dylan police haven't yanked. When necessary, we included covers of the songs.
