Best Bob Dylan Impressions/ Parodies by Other Musicians/Celebrities


Aside from the Seuss thing, a few good Dylan impressions/ parodies here!

10. Joan Baez in “Mary Hamilton (Bob Dylan version)”

As well as this one, Baez has another hilarious parody in a version of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” in which she sings all the questions (“Where have you been, my blue-eyed boy?” etc.) in her beautiful voice and all the answers in great nasally Dylan twang! Very strange and funny.

9. Benny Hill sketch

A Dylan parody by the late Benny Hill.

8. Paul Simon in “A Simple Desultory Philippic” by Simon and Garfunkel


[no embedding on this one, sorry]

6. Frank Skinner sketch

During an episode of The Frank Skinner Show, UK comedian Skinner does a parody of a Bob Dylan song bizarrely involving the news story of a man from Scotland beating HIV.

6. Weird Al Yankovic in “Bob” by Weird Al Yankovic



5. Hugh Laurie in A Bit of Fry and Laurie


[no embedding on this one either]

4. Ed Mann in “Flakes” by Frank Zappa



(At 1:19 in the video)

Note: the studio version of this one was done by Adrian Belew, an impression probably better than Mann’s. This one’s great too, though.

3. John C. Reilly in Walk Hard




2. John Lennon in an unreleased solo track






1. Mark Knopfler – his entire career!!

T-Bone Burnett with Joan Baez – Silver Mantis ; 16 May 1976 (Rolling Thunder Revue)

During Bob Dylan‘s famous Rolling Thunder Revue of 1976, T-Bone played ‘Silver Mantis’ at just about every show. Here is one of the best quality recordings.

T-Bone’s introduced by Dylan, who gets the name of the song wrong!

Joan Baez provides the excellent harmony vocals.

A very odd track this – later covered by Dylan acolyte Kris Kristofferson – more like the plot to a Manga story than a song by a Texas musician!

An excellent track, nonetheless!

This was originally released by Burnett’s The Alpha Band.

Seito lived in the canyon of the dragons
Sashiko lived in the valley of the moon

They met along the highway to Aomeri
where danger in the forest loomed

Sashiko dressed in silks and dreamed of heroes
She was carried in a hammock draped and veiled
Her father was a cruel and brutal warlord
who fearful kept her in a shell

Seito he was but a lowly servant
but his master knew him to be true and brave

When he happened on the scene of her abduction
he sent her captors to their graves

Seito guarded Sashiko to her palace
he had no thought of ransom to conceal
She took him in and washed his cuts and bruises
and laid him softly down to sleep

When morning came she rose to tell her father
Of the stranger who had ruined the kidnap plot
But jealous and enraged her father seized him
and chained him in the dungeon dark

Sashiko’s tears flowed like the river Edo
as she pleaded Seito’s freedom face to floor
But the warlord turned his back
and would not hear her

His mercy withered years before

When night fell she crept down into the dungeon
Two daggers hidden underneath her coat
And there they slept in death by harakiri
her father’s chains around them both

Joan Baez – Let it Be

https://i0.wp.com/www.altmanphoto.com/Joan.Baez.fr.jpeg

“I know he wanted to write a ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters.”

– John Lennon

Nice vid with lots of great Dylan pix compiled by shitascandal with one-time Dylan paramour Joan Baez doing a decent version of a poor late Beats track. Baez aways knew how to make the most out of an anthem!

More specifically, this is the rather mawkish Macca track Let it Be from the Beatle’s disappointing final LP of the same name released in 1970 (but originally recorded some extended time earlier).

It was the final single released by the Beatles while the band was still active.

This is a song that was lapped up by the idiot music masses and has attained an incomprehensible level of critical acclaim!

Maybe we’re crazy but this track reminds us of any number of ridiculous songs we used to hear people proudly rattle out in Catholic Church back in the day, when we were forced to attend as kids. Meaningless anthemic hymnals overladen with bland imagery, vacuous saccharine songs saying nothing, probably clobbered together by oompa-loompas in some religious muzak factory!

There’s an inane cliche about giving enough monkeys enough time – and enough typewriters (or maybe now it’s laptops!) – and they will come up with the works of Shakespeare! However nonsensical that may be, the monkeys could at least come up with those awful Church ditties!

Rather insanely, in 2004, this was ranked number 20 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time! We don’t know how the hell that could be – in our view, it’s not even in the top 20 Beatles songs!

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d7/Letitbe_single.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

John Lennon was not exactly a huge fan of this bland Macca anthem either, most damningly of all, likening it to a Wings track!!

Prior to a take during the 31 January 1969 recording session, Lennon famously asked, “Are we supposed to giggle in the solo?”. This is captured in an early version of the track released on Anthology 3, which features this interchange between Lennon and McCartney prior to another take:

John: Are we supposed to giggle in the solo?
Paul: Yeah.
John: OK.
Paul: This’ll – this is gonna knock you out, boy.

In a Playboy interview in 1980, Lennon totally disavowed any involvement with composing the song, saying;

“That’s Paul. What can you say? Nothing to do with the Beatles. It could’ve been Wings. I don’t know what he’s thinking when he writes ‘Let It Be.’ I think it was inspired by ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters.’ That’s my feeling, although I have nothing to go on. I know he wanted to write a ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters.’

Joan Baez w ith The Smothers Bros. – I Shall Be Released

Tom and Dick provide some nice harmonies while Joan performs one of Bob Dylan’s greatest.

Baez sure does have a great voice, and an uncanny knack for getting her interpretations spot on!
