Most Underrated Bob Dylan Songs


The Top Ten

1 Jokerman
2 It Ain't Me Babe
3 I Shall Be Released
4 All Along the Watchtower

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

5 Emotionally Yours

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

6 You Ain't Goin' Nowhere
7 Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
8 Ballad of a Thin Man
9 Maggie's Farm

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

10 Every Grain of Sand

The Contenders

11 When the Night Comes Falling from the Sky

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

12 We Better Talk This Over
13 Gates of Eden
14 Political World
15 Abandoned Love

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

16 Sara

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

17 One of Us Must Know (Sooner of Later)
18 Most of the Time
19 Tangled Up in Blue

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