O is for the Oldest Profession (prostitution, natch!)
House of the Rising Sun-White Stripes. This is a folk song that Bob covered on his first, eponymous record. And he does my favorite version.
P is for Paul Westerberg.
Like a Rolling Pin-Replacements
Q is for Quinn the Eskimo-Grateful Dead.
R is for reconsidering. As in, thinking twice.
Don’t Think Twice-Ben Lee
Don’t Think Twice-Bree Sharp
R is also for Reader Submission! One Too Many Mornings by Brad Breeck from The Mae Shi, from the soundrack to “One Too Many Mornings”.
S is for Smashing Pumpkins’ cover of Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues
T is for trains, a common theme in Dylan’s work.
It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry-Little Feat
I can’t think of anything for U and V, so I’ll just do two bonus Ws instead:
Black Jack Davey-White Stripes (Live-2005-10-02)
Ballad of a Thin Man-Willard Grant Conspiracy
X, Y, and Z are for what’s left. A few leftovers, beginning with old fish:
Tangled Up In Blue-Leftover Salmon
Gates of Eden-Robyn Hitchcock
All Along the Watchtower-Fratellis
