This thread has got me into Dylan, big time. I enjoy lists like this because I get to rediscover tracks I overlooked or haven't listened to in a long time. Dylan is a master, no doubt.

Aw shit, I forgot Positively 4th Street.
"....you'd know what an drag it is to see you......".Tremendous put down line

And I want Mr. Tambourine Man in mine too. And Ballad of a Thin Man. Crap
Perfect examples of why 5 is too few!

1 all along the watchtower
2 blowing in the wind
3 knocking on heavens door
4 like a rolling stone
5 tangled up in blue

I have seen bob twice. And lets say I prefer his studio work.

And my #1 song of his was done best by hendrix with the dead coming in at 2nd.

I think the Dead were the only band who could do full justice to Bob's songs. Jerry doing Visions of Johanna is just stunning.

Top 10, chronological

Girl From The North Country
Don't Think Twice It's Alright (Probably my absolute favorite)
Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll
My Back Pages
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Like a Rolling Stone
Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blue Again (this song is what really got me into Bob Dylan and is still a favorite today)
Lay Lady Lay
Tangled Up In Blue
Not Dark Yet

I've been listening to him for years but I ashamedly still haven't got/heard every album in his discog. Less than half actually, 16/38.
