Dylan to Jesus: Happy Birthday, Man

Bob Dylan has released Christmas In The Heart, his first holiday themed album. As a long-time Dylan follower this is slightly bewildering, yet very welcome. I can tell you this is not nearly as as out-of-blue as his bizarre (and slightly creepy) TV ad for Victoria's Secret. As for the most the head scratching Dylan-lyric I'd say it's the line from "Gotta Serve Somebody:" where he says "...you may call me zimmy."

This may be the only CD I buy in 2009 (and possibly the last one I ever buy.)
Thanks Bob, have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

Bob Dylan's White Christmas Dream:

While riding on a train going west,
I fell asleep for to take my rest.
I dreamed a dream that featured snow,
On a white Christmas like the ones I used to know.

With icy leaves, the trees all glistened
For sleigh bell sounds, the children listened,
Ten thousand dollars for your days to be bright
I’d give it up to make your Christmases be white.
