Most Underrated Bob Dylan Songs

The Top Ten

1 Jokerman Jokerman Cover Art
2 It Ain't Me Babe It Ain't Me Babe Cover Art

It's pretty well known to be honest, especially among Dylan fans. - Gg2000

3 I Shall Be Released I Shall Be Released Cover Art
4 Emotionally Yours Emotionally Yours Cover Art

Maybe his best song. his voice fits with the lyrics and anyone who dislikes this shouldn't love anyone then

5 All Along the Watchtower All Along the Watchtower Cover Art

I agree, Bob Dylan's version is very underrated. I prefer it to Jimi Hendrix's, but that's just me. - PetSounds

6 You Ain't Goin' Nowhere You Ain't Goin' Nowhere Cover Art

I think lots of people know it more for the Byrds version (I heard it from them first). I do like Dylan's version, though; it feels more folky, which is a good change. - Gg2000

7 Don't Think Twice, It's All Right Don't Think Twice, It's All Right Cover Art
8 Ballad of a Thin Man Ballad of a Thin Man Cover Art
9 Every Grain of Sand Every Grain of Sand Cover Art
10 Maggie's Farm Maggie's Farm Cover Art

It's great, but not underrated. It's on a lot of Greatest Hits Compilations and that's not being underrated

The Contenders

11 We Better Talk This Over We Better Talk This Over Cover Art
12 When the Night Comes Falling from the Sky When the Night Comes Falling from the Sky Cover Art

Dylan may be the Best at making different versions of his own songs - slow, fast, different sounds and instruments as well as vocal inflection. I prefer the original release of this one from Empire Burlesque (an underrated album) but the iTunes link here takes you to another strong and interesting version. - Billyv

13 Gates of Eden Gates of Eden Cover Art
14 One of Us Must Know (Sooner of Later) One of Us Must Know (Sooner of Later) Cover Art

This is actually one of my favorites from Blonde on Blonde. I love the melody and how big the chorus feels. - Gg2000

15 Political World Political World Cover Art
16 Sara Sara Cover Art

Criminally under-rated. One of his finest in my opinion.

17 Abandoned Love Abandoned Love Cover Art

He was such a prolific writer and often overly meticulous in the studio. This gem was left off of Desire, not because he didn't like it but because he felt the other songs fit more cohesively. I think it was a mistake. - Billyv

18 Most of the Time Most of the Time Cover Art
19 Tangled Up in Blue Tangled Up in Blue Cover Art

Not really underrated. its pretty widely reconized as one of bobs best songs - RecklessGreed

20 Changing of the Guards Changing of the Guards Cover Art

Underrated song, underrated album. street legal is his best album. nothing against blonde on blonde or blood on the tracks, those are masterpieces. but this album has every track that really makes you wonder about life. this song is #1 on this album. empire burlesque is also very underrated

21 Day of the Locusts Day of the Locusts Cover Art
22 Silvio
23 My Back Pages My Back Pages Cover Art

Again, I refer all to the version from Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary Concert with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan all playing guitars and sharing lead vocals and harmonies, with excellent back up musicians! - Billyv

Such an underrated album “Another Side of...” and this is the highlight. Dylan at the peak of his lyrical genius and also his voice is arguably the strongest it can be on this album. Passionate, deep, loud, whiny but pure Dylan
