Supposedly Sam Cooke was so impressed with Bob Dylan's "The Times, They Are a Changin'" that it inspired him to write "A Change Is Gonna Come."
I've always been a big fan of "Tangled Up in Blue." I love how well the lyrics tell a story, conjure images, provoke thoughts and fit together so well.
Plus, I've always had a fondness for songs about strippers. 'Main Street' by Bob Seger is, of course, a great song about about a stripper.
But you know, the very best song about living with a stripper and being obsessed with a stripper is probably Norah Jones' "I've Got to See You Again."
