    This is one of the best songs from 80s Bob.

    With time, I must acknowledge that the earlier live chorus blows the studio chorus out of the water. But then, in the live versions we don't get "put your hand on my head, baby! Do I have a temperature?!" Tough trade-off. Gotta give the live the edge, though. If only if only if only there'd been a record put down in December 1980, a stopgap between Saved and the overflow of material condensed into Shot of Love. Just think: Caribbean Wind, The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar, Every Grain of Sand, Ain't Gonna Go to Hell for Anybody, Cover Down Pray Through, I Will Love Him, City of Gold, maybe You Changed My Life and/or some altogether unheard, crack-fallen & unreleased gems, all on one album. Coulda given Saved a run for its money as my favorite Dylan song collection (as opposed to fave album, which goes to its predecessor).

    Interesting to know that this wasn't included in the vinyl release... what a shame.

    The studio version is fantastic, but I might prefer the chorus from the earlier live versions: "Set my affection on things above, let nothing get in the way of that love, not even the Rock of Gibraltar! If you see her on Fanning Street, tell her I still think she's neat, and that the groom's still waiting at the altar." Just a great rhythm and sequence of thoughts; but I do like the bigger picture in the studio chorus too, where the groom reference is more explicitly about Christ and not just borrowing the imagery for a matter of more personal proportions (which, however, works extremely well).

    Cities on fire, phones out of order, they're killing nuns and soldiers, there's fighting on the border. What can I say about Claudette? Ain't seen her since January! She could be respectably married or running a whorehouse in Buenos Aires.

    Try to be pure at heart, they arrest you for robbery, mistake your shyness for aloofness, your silence for snobbery. Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me - about the madness of becomin' what one was never meant to be.

    Agree, but don't discount "Lenny Bruce."

    This and Every Grain of Sand make Shot of Love great, if just for ten minutes.
