Bob Dylan is one of the most elusive dudes with the press ever. His interviews have fallen by the wayside and are usually quite an event worth reading. The legendary singer-songwriter has had to speak to the press once more and, incidentally, reveal some of his favorite songs.
The privileged person who has been able to speak with him has been the journalist Douglas Brinkley, who has published his talk in The New York Times. The interview, according to the newspaper, took place in two parts, the first last April 2020 and the second was in June of the same year. In it, how could it be otherwise, they talked about the two songs from Dylan’s new work that have already seen the light, “Murder Most Foul” and “I Contain Multitudes”. In these two songs, the great artist mentions the Eagles and The Rolling Stones, which prompted the journalist to ask Bob about his favorite songs by these artists.
Dylan cited “New Kid in Town” and “Life in the Fast Lane.” However, and despite his lack of enthusiasm when it comes to revealing which songs he liked, the musician raved about another song, “Pretty Maids All in a Row”, a song that appeared at the ‘Hotel California’ and that Dylan has called it “what could be one of the best songs ever.” Such praise from the singer-songwriter is undoubtedly something to brag about.
