The Spanish band Hinds playing live on KPEX last year. During a rather stilted interview section (at 7 mins 50 secs in) Carlotta and Ana talk about their origins as a duo doing Bob Dylan covers, "weird versions" they say - good for them!

I have been to Amsterdam last weekend and came across this TV ad for a dutch railway company. The spot features the original version of "I Want You":

Watched the first episode of "The People Vs. O.J. Simpson" last night on FX and it closed out with "I Shall Be Released" ... not performed by Dylan though.

They played "Dreamin' of You" very loudly in the men's locker room at my gym the other day. Didn't see that coming.

Dylan appears many, many, many times in the new biopic on Steve Jobs. In the dialogue more times than I can remember, appearing in two or three posters on walls, and three of his recordings on the soundtrack.

Interesting! But the interviewer annoyed me by asking "[Did you play the songs] in the style of Bob Dylan or, like, rock versions?". :roll: :lol:

Not to say he's totally unexpected on late night television shows,
but he 'made' his comeback this week on Colbert, from the mouths of Kermit and Stephen:

There were some strong winds here over the weekend. Just when I was passing by a particularly fearsome gust came round the corner and nearly knocked a busker over as he got to the chorus, "The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind, the answer is blowin' in the wi....."

The resurrection of this thread reminded me that I forgot to mention after watching 'Hail Caeser' by the Cohen brothers, that there was a plug for the phrase 'expecting rain'.

Someone else mentioned that on ER, without giving away too many spoilers, what was the context?

I can't even remember the context, it is so uncontextual

The "Two Chainz" episode of Comedy Central's series "Broad City" had a shirtless guy playing the 1998 Grammy-disruptor Soy Bomb.

Dylan's new album and tour earned a spot on Colbert's One More Thing bit during last night's late night opening. Happy day :)

Just watched an episode of the TV series "Falling skies". It plays in a kind of dystopian earth, where aliens took over the planet and suppress all remaining humans which are left on earth after the initial alien attack. Just out of nowhere a girl tells a rumor that she heard that Dylan might be "holed up in a mineshaft in Minnesota, rewriting his protest songs into war ballads". :lol:

Yesterday on german TV there was a portrait of Hans-Dietrich Genscher, ex foreign minister of germany who passed away. I was half asleep as I suddenly heard: I'm walking, through streets that are dead.... Yes, they've chosen Love Sick as musical background at some point on this politician-bio. Kind of strange...

I've been watching a trashy tv show, Shadowhunters. It's romantic YA urban fantasy with supernatural elements loosely based on Jewish lore. The plucky heroine's best friend-turned-vampire has an indie rock band that seems to specialize in noodly acoustic covers. At their gig, what do we hear? "Forever Young", of course. :wink:

Someone told me that Richard Lewis had mentioned Dylan in his delicious and nutritious twitter feed. I don't find that all that unexpected, but the song Lewis was hip to was Political World, which is a bit of a surprise.

I was prepping myself to see the Chet Baker film this week by watching some interviews,
The director of the film is here with Ethan Hawke and he cited how he fell into jazz.
Same way he fell into any music he said: following Dylan's breadcrumbs.
Seems to be a huge fan

In episode 5 season 3 of The Bridge the brilliant Danish/Swedish noir TV series a young couple are driving back into Copenhagen at night. Ballad of a Thin Man is playing very loudly and sounding very sinister. They swerve to avoid a dead deer in the middle of the road and end up in a ditch. A big black SUV drives up, the pregnant young woman is bundled out of the car and into the SUV by black clad figures. The leading figure in the abduction goes round to the driver's side and warns, "She was never in the car with you, remember that." He turns to go, then he turns back, "Great music," he says. Something is happening and you don't what it is, do you Mr Jones? echos over the bleak outskirts of Copenhagen - fantastic scene!


I was watching the series and was surprised too. Seems Bob Dylan likes The Bridge too :)

Watching the excellent "Billions" on Showtime.
Paul Giamatti's character US Attorney Chuck Rhoades whilst speaking to a fetishist friend, paraphrases "as the man says it might be the devil or it might be the lord but your'e gonna have to serve somebody"
The shows end credits played out to Gotta Serve Somebody. :)

In this, the seventh season of The Good Wife Alicia is in court defending a songwriter from a copyright claim by a label that has dumped him. The question is whether he was inspired to write the song in question while still under contract. Alicia (looking way cooler, more elegant and somehow ineffably sadder than ever this season) cites a couple of examples of inspiration - "Bob Dylan didn't start writing Tangled Up In Blue on the day he got married, though that's what inspired it" she says.

Yesterday early evening on the BBC Radio4 News programme PM there was a an item about what would replace the chimes of Big Ben when they are stopped while the tower is refurbished. They spoke to the architectural consultant for the Palace of Westminster, Mr Leon Trotsky, at least that's what I think he was called, I was reeling from hearing the sound of Bob's Ring Them Bells which played throughout the report.

This was playing in our car on Saturday morning the instant the car left the B10 and joined the B16 trunk road on our family day out at Legoland in Southern Germany:

"How old are you, my pretty little miss,
How old are you, my honey"
She answered to him with a lovin' smile
"I'll be sixteen come Sunday,
Be sixteen come Sunday."
