Bob Dylan - Top 100 Songs

Happy birthday, Bob Dylan! Born on May 24, 1941, Robert Zimmerman became one of music’s most celebrated and influential songwriters. In celebration of his accomplishments, a top 100 songs list was posted on the DMDB Facebook page on 5/11/11 and it has been updated here. As always, DMDB lists are determined by creating an aggregate list from multiple other best-of lists and factoring in chart success, sales, airplay, and awards. In addition, 39 best-of Dylan lists were figured into the mix. Also, the number of appearances on ten different Dylan compilations of Dylan were factored in.
