Week 12 - Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright, Bob Dylan
I’ve been listening to The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan a lot this summer and this song stayed on my mind. Funny enough, Bekah heard this song at a friend’s house and suggested to cover as well. I’ve read Suzy Rotolo’s memoir’s about Greenwich Village in the 60’s (she’s the girl on the cover of The Freewheeling’ Bob Dylan). I lived in Greenwich Village for a long time until I moved to Brooklyn and have a soft spot for the place. It was fascinating to read about the neighborhood and imagine what it was like. There’s an old music store on W 4th and it’s filled with instruments and is utterly chaotic but I always loved its “from the time gone by” atmosphere. I enjoyed going there and imagine all the musicians that passed through.
This song is a beautiful breakup song, supposedly written around the time Suzy decided to extend her stay in Italy. I’m really happy how it came out and hope that we were able to do justice to this beautiful song. It’s my new favorite. Hope you enjoy!
