#AtoZ Dylan – “X” is for MiXed-up Confusion

(Hey, in the A to Z Challenge, sometimes we have to get creative!)

“Mixed-up Confusion,” even though it doesn’t begin with ‘X,’ deserves a place in this series, because it was Dylan’s first released single. He recorded the song in 1962, but it was not included on The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. A different version of the song was released years later on Dylan’s compilation album Masterpieces.

I managed to find a good cover of “Mixed-up Confusion” – here again is Zachary Scot Johnson:

#AtoZ Dylan – “O” is for On the Road Again

Recorded in January 1965, “On the Road Again” appears on the album Bringing it All Back Home. It’s slightly reminiscent of “Maggie’s Farm,” which is on the same album.

Dylan has acknowledged being influenced by Jack Kerouac, and the title of this song is likely taken from Kerouac’s iconic On the Road.
