idiot wind

generally i keep to myself most of the time, and i like to think that i'm not universally hated because i don't do anything to directly piss people off. however, their are a number of total fucking bitches that exist in my life that dislike me for whatever personal reasons and i would prefer to be rid of them permanently. fortunately this song exists to make me feel better.

i woke up on the roadside
daydreaming bout the way things sometimes are
visions of your chestnut mare shoot through my head
and are making me see stars
you hurt the ones that i love best and cover up the truth with lies
one day you'll be in the ditch, flies buzzing around your eyes, blood on your saddle.
idiot wind, blowing through the flowers of your tomb
blowing through the curtains in your room
idiot wind, blowing everytime you move your teeth
you're an idiot babe, it's a wonder that you still know how to breathe.

I do like this song, but I've never really made up my mind what I think of "Blood on the Tracks" in general.
It was heralded as one of Dylan's breakthrough albums when it came up, but overall it never felt that way to me. "Shelter in the Storm" is my favorite here.

On a not quite related musical note, I don't think I ever linked you to my blog post on early John Cale and Lou Reed performances.

yeah i don't know if i love this album overall as much as a lot of his other ones but some of the individual songs really stand out to me. i adore "you're a big girl now" for some reason.
those are some great links, by the way!
