One of the greatest rock songs of all time. With a simple organ riff, electric guitar, piano, tambourine and harmonica all perfectly balanced in the song. The song ran over six minutes, an incredible amount of time for a song in that period, with most being 2-4 minutes long. The authenticity in Dylan's voice (H-o-o-w does it feel?) is very well felt throughout. At one point, this song was six pages long, and Dylan cut it down to what it became. Rolling Stone Magazine voted this as the greatest rock song off all time, topping a list of 500. Dylan even said himself, "Stone's the best song I ever wrote."
Ahh...how does it feel? To be without a home? Like a complete unknown...Like a Rolling Stone...
