Patti Smith Should Have Sung Forever Young at the Nobel Prize Ceremony today

I mentioned before that Patti Smith went to Stockholm to accept the Nobel Prize for Bob Dylan.  I heard that she sung A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall at the ceremony.  You can see below that she flubbed a couple of lines.  I forgive her for that, but I really feel that the wrong song was selected as this was a cold war song from the early 1960s.  We should all look ahead to the future, no back upon the past.

I would have selected Forever Young which is much, kinder, gentler, and timeless.  I just finished watching a DVD of The Last Waltz where Dylan sang it backed by the Band.
