JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

Song of the Day 12/12/08

If you’re going out this weekend and wonder where our constantly updated NYC live music calendar went, it’s here. In the meantime our top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues, one day at a time all the way to #1.

Friday’s is #592:

Bob Dylan – Hurricane

Here’s an iconic one, no great surprise, but a song that the list wouldn’t be complete without. And arguably Dylan’s most courageous moment, a song that helped free an innocent man from a life sentence. Email this to anyone who says music can’t change the world. Nice Balkan violin work from Scarlet Rivera, too. Available wherever files are shared; if you’re looking for vinyl, it’s on the otherwise mediocre 1975 album Desire.
