Wow. A seriously impressive list. "Hurricane" over a lot of other near-classic material is a ballsy choice. "Ballad of a Thin Man" might be #1 in my head. Great compilation, though.

I am impressed with your list. One quibble, though: Wedding Song ahead of Like A Rolling Stone?

Paul said...

Hey there! Nice list. I recently made a similar list at my blog. I'll have to check more closely to see where we overlap.
