Bob Dylan-Don't Think Twice, It's Alright

Now you might be thinking two things: One, this isn't the original and it cuts out at the end and Two: How many Bob Dylan songs are in this damned book anyway? Well, I searched youtube far and wide and this was the best version I could find because Bob's music lable apparently doesn't realize that it would actually boost sales to expose Bob to a larger audience through youtube. Sorry. Blame the company, man. :) As for the amount of Dylan songs that seem to be on this list, it will expand eventually, I promise. But Dylan plays a huge part in the relationship of Brian and Liz. With the line "When your rooster crows at the break of dawn, look out your window and I'll be gone/You're the reason I'm traveling on but don't think twice it's alright!" Liz says more than any big speech could after transfering to U.C.L.A. and moving hundreds of miles from Berkeley to Los Angeles to tie up some unfinished business where the great professor is concerned. She is angry, she's bitter, she's hurt and this song, especially that line, represent that better than I think any other could. Dylan's music is a mutual pal to them both so it fits that he should be the weapon launched on that day when she takes her first real gutsy stand again Brian's bullshit. It is not the last time she and Brian will fight using Dylan lyrics but it is the first and it works. ;)

  2. Yep! That was pretty much the way Liz was looking at it when she tossed out that line. She would have used any trick in the book....lol
