Van Morrison - 'Just Like a Woman' (1999)
Two for the price of one here, a Dylan song and Van's great voice, can it get any better? This is a great rendition by Van from 1999. Watch out for the 'cereal' inclusion, let me know if you spot it. There are a few other live versions out there that I'm aware of, I'm sure there are more.
But what a great song, it is definitely one of my favourites, 'they' say that there are many 'references' to a 'relationship' with Edie Segwick, the model, actress who was with Andy Warhol (Supposedly?? the title 'Blonde on Blonde' also refers to E.S.). If you watch the movie 'Factory Girl' (the story of E.S.), there is a character who is clearly having an affair with E.S., his name is not Dylan but nothing is left to the imagination who he actually is. Not a great movie, but worth a watch.
E.S. what a babe!The song has been covered many times but never bettered than the version done by Richie Havens on his album Mixed Bag (1967).
If you have any other versions of Just Like a Woman that you like or prefer, let me know in the comments.
It's was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear
What poetry! Jeeeez no wonder we like Bob Dylan.
