Musical Men Mondays: Bob Dylan

Happy Memorial Day! For today's Musical Men Monday feature, I thought I'd spotlight one of the most iconic American musicians still alive, Bob Dylan. Not only do I find Mr. Dylan's tousled afro and indifferent gazes exceedingly attractive, but he has a haunting (if nasal) voice that makes his folk songs more than just simple little ditties. He is a poet, and stylish, and inspiring.

My first encounter with Bob Dylan was a little over a year ago, when I started scouring a local antique store for old records. There, in the $1 pile, was an old album full of his greatest hits. Back then, I had no idea who he was, and called my dad with a list of old artists I had found in the pile, wondering which ones he thought I would like. He told me to buy the Bob Dylan record, and I did, and it wasn't long before I was jamming out to "Like A Rolling Stone" in my bedroom.

If you're looking for some stellar jams, and fancy these old black and white photos of ol' Bobby, you should jump on the Dylan train and check out these tracks:

** "It Ain't Me, Babe"
** "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"
** "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"
** "Lay Lady Lay"
