Bob Dylan, "Like A Rolling Stone"

Bob Dylan, “Like A Rolling Stone”

And it’s a good one, at that. Sure, it was just about half a century in the making, but you can’t rush art, right? Yesterday, Bob Dylan dropped a first-ever music video for an old favorite, “Like A Rolling Stone.” Better late than never, and it’s sure to reignite any sort of Dylan phase currently back-burnered.

The interactive video is a choose-your-own-adventure, in the style of flipping through 16 channels of celebs in their television environments, lip-synching the 1965 classic. It’s exceptionally well done, each station befitting of the lyrics so perfectly in their delivery, setting and nuances. On one channel, a Marc Maron interview; on another, Property Brothers. Also those dudes from Pawn Stars and Drew Carey calling up contestants on The Price is Right. Who knew The Voice of a Generation could be so versatile?

The music video also marks the release of the new – count ’em – 47-disc box set, The Complete Album Collection Volume 1.

Check it out once or ten times. Alas, we can’t embed, so just head over here.
