FlinterFile: Bob Dylan- I Want You


In 1966, Bob Dylan had a hit with a song from his album Blonde On Blonde.It was the last song to be recorded, which happened in the morning hours of the tenth of March. The song was composed in a way that music and text worked together to get the message across. The song falls apart in two parts: a chorus which is direct (I want you) and a parade of people in the rest of the song, like the Queen of Spades and a guilty undertaker. The dancing girl with his Chinese suit has been understood as a reference to the girlfriend of Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones, with the line “time was on his side” as a reference to Time Is On My Side. The song made number 20 in the US. Enjoy
