Dylan Covers # 51 Four Seasons - Dont Think Twice/Sebastion Cabot - Like a Rolling Stone/ 2 of the Worst Ever


SEBASTION CABOT - Like a Rolling Stone

Big Girls don't Cry!


THE FOUR SEASONS - Don't Think Twice it's alright

I was challenged to find the worst Dylan Cover and I could not resist it. I have come up with a couple of gems but I bet there are still many many more out there.

Are they not just hideous! they are so bad they are badder!!. I loved the Jersey Boys but I have serious doubts after hearing this. As for Mr Cabot, well, it is obvious he is taking the piss and if he is not, well he should be. This guy needs s to be placed on a mail stamp with his hands tied directly round Frankie's cape and both sent on a replica Titanic made of lead to Desolation Road, post haste!. Never to be seen again.

For more Dylan covers

Both horribly appalling. The Four Seasons sound like The Chipmunks. Utter crap.

As for Mr. Cabot...it's freaky because I only just discovered this one myself the other day -'take what you have gathered from coincidence' - and it IS terrible but I like it for all it's shameful stupidity. Have you seen that bloke, Mr. Farber, who does those speaking versions of Dylan songs on YouTube? Now I know where he got the idea. He's a nut job.

Meinhard - yes I agree there are so many Covers of AATWT and so many are pretty dogy.

"Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" was done as a joke with affection for the original.

"First time I heard it on the radio, I thought it might have been a Motown song by The Supremes. The melody sounded familiar, but I couldn't place it. But then when the trilling kicked in, it all came together. It could only be "Don't Think Twice (It's All Right)." Thy had a completely different take on the song. Sort of like adding rouge to a bloodless stone." — Bob Dylan
