Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Bob Dylan, Just Like A Woman.
The thing that slays Bossy about this song off of Dylan’s 1966 record, Blonde on Blonde, is that musically, at its core, it’s really a 1950s song in the tradition of bands like The Five Satins and The Roulettes. But Bob’s poetry and sensibility made it sound so new, and the song holds up across time.
Speaking of Blonde on Blonde and the above album cover which Bossy remembers staring at for hours on end, Bossy thinks this is where she developed her taste for men in scarves.

For another FABULOUS rendition of this song, check out the version on “Concert for Bangladesh”, where it closes what is truly a classic Bob Dylan set.

Dylan (and I am a fan) is seasonal to me and equates perfectly to biting wind, bare trees, and November.
