Approaching Bob Dylan's 80th Birthday - Aquarium Drunkard

This is hilarious! Great addition from Aquarium Drunkard

Strike Another Match :: Dylan Translated

Bob Dylan turns 80 years young this month … so let’s get the celebration started with something a little on the bizarre side. This mix gathers a selection of vintage Dylan covers with lyrics translated into Greek, Italian, French, Dutch, Spanish and more. Ranging from the mid-1960s to late 1970s, it’s a sweet (if occasionally disorienting) listen, as these singers attempt to force Bob into new linguistic zones.
