GUEST,Sidewinder. 'Like a Rolling Stone' Changed the World (81* d) RE: 'Like a Rolling Stone' Changed the World 09 Aug 05

I believe the songs, films, books and obje d'arte are merely paraphenalia relating to a bygone era that makes you wonder if we are really progressing in these fields of culture and entertainment. Obviously our tastes are more sophisticated and diverse than ever before so it always amazes me when people throw up the same song titles and albums as being "the best," or "most important" etc. The people I respect are the likes of Sir Paul who actually bought that record at the time and still feels as strongly about it 50 years after that momentous occassion in "his" life.As for the rest of the 20 or 30 somethings who voted for Zimmermans 23rd best song how did they participate in the cultural shift that supposedly occurred when 45s doubled in playing time? And what was so wrong with the 3 minute opuses that enthralled us before then? I vote for The Ronettes "Be My Baby" because I can; and because I have continued to play and enjoy my original copy for decades after. Can these sycophants say the same about "Like A Rolling Stone," can you Mr Jones?
