3 good and 3 great versions of Bob Dylan’s Love Sick

“I’m sick of love but I’m in the thick of it”
– Bob Dylan (Love Sick)

Love Sick is a song by Bob Dylan, released on his 30th studio album Time Out of Mind in 1997 and released as the second single from the album on June 1, 1998.

He sounds like he will but can not give up on love. It has a hard , dark rhythm that pounds through the song, hammering the ominous lyrics into our ears. It’s a deceptively simple structure, the more you listen to it the better it gets. It is not easy making things simple and naked. The melody is perfect for the lyrics, the narrator is hesitant in his quest, but he have no choice. He must give in to love. Well, that’s my take on it.

I love the melody, I love the song. It is a masterpiece.

Let us start with the 3 good ones.

The White Stripes :

Marichi El Bronx:

Triggerfinger:

“Just don’t know what to do
