Put This on Your iPod: The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan

[Sarabeth here, back with some more jams to add to your iTunes library! Every Wednesday, I’m bringing you music suggestions – could be something new, old, hugely popular or fairly unknown –  to awesome-ify your  collection.]

I was really sad Monday when I went to the interwebs to find that Suze Rotolo had passed away. She was a very creative individual in her own right, but was most well known for being Bob Dylan’s gf/muse and was on the cover along side of him for his album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. This one’s for you, Suze.

About the Artist:

It seems almost silly to write a bio for Dylan, but for those of you not in the know, Bob Dylan is a folk singer/songwriter who’s been doing amazing things for music for the past 50 years. Born Robert Allen Zimmerman in Minnesota, Dylan started college at University of Minnesota but dropped out to move to NYC to pursue his music career.

Top 3 Tracks:

Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright

Blowin’ in the Wind

A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall

Why You Should Listen to It:

As far as I’m concerned, Bob Dylan can almost do no wrong. Did you see him rocking out at the Grammy’s at 69? This album is from his earlier years and is a great example of the great folk music coming from the ’60s. Plus, all of Dylan’s songs hold important and inspirational messages, just the stuff we need to get us through midterms and on to Spring Break.
