Top 30 are posted further down in this post.

The 1960’s poll has now closed (Bob Dylan’s best songs from the 1960s) and it’s time to move to the next decade; the seventies.

The decade that gave us “Blood On The Tracks”, “Desire”, “Planet Waves”, “Street-Legal”, “New Morning”, “Slow Train Coming”, “Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid” & “Self Portrait”.

This time we challenge you to put together a top 10 list, or at least 10 songs (if you only provide a top 5 list, they will count as well). Songs 1-5 will receive 2 points each & 6-10 will receive 1 point.

The poll will close on Friday.. ca 15:00 Norwegian time (09:00 New York time).

Here is my list:

  1. Tangled Up In Blue (1974)
  2. Idiot Wind (1974)
  3. Isis (1975)
  4. Changing Of The Guards (1978)
  5. Up To Me (1974)

  10. When I Paint My Masterpiece (1971)
