What Bob Dylan Song Should Paul McCartney Sing?
In March 2009 I reported in this journal that Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan were to record together. Obviously, this never happened. Apparently it was a rumor that just never materialized. Anyway, I wish Sir Paul a very happy 70th birthday, but what Bob Dylan song should he record. I think back to the Nashville Skyline where a reviewer said about Dylan "That young angry kid has gone romantic." I am thinking of Tonight I'll Be Staying Here with You would be a good song for Paul to cover. The version seen below is from the Rolling Thunder Revue. It is a little rough and not as mellow as the original studio version.
