His original song for the film earned him an Academy Award and accrued acclaim on account of its lyrics, which combine poetry and introspection to explore themes of change, disillusionment, and uncertainty. And that was pretty funny, because the very last thing Bob did was raise the shaker up like 10db, making it ridiculously loud, and that was the mix he wanted to go with".The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

He and his band performed the song in a segment recorded in Sydney, that was inserted into the Academy Awards broadcast via a satellite link. It is nothing outstanding, but is a welcome addition to the scarcity of commercially-available live tracks. Dylan critic Michael Gray has commented on the wide range of cultural resources in the song's lyrics, describing it as unique in the way it synthesises the worlds of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Duane Eddy.By accepting all cookies, you agree to our use of cookies to deliver and maintain our services and site, improve the quality of Reddit, personalize Reddit content and advertising, and measure the effectiveness of advertising. I knew it was in the movie "Wonder Boys," which I watched last night (The movie is OK - the song is the best part). Things Have Changed" is a Dylan song in the style of "Time Out of Mind" and is excellent, as expected.

Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s and who suddenly shifted gears, releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s. But when the studio recording could not be located, it was replaced by a live version recorded in Portland, Oregon, on June 15, 2000. It was also anthologized on the compilation albums The Essential Bob Dylan in 2000, [4] The Best of Bob Dylan in 2005 [5] and Dylan in 2007. Other notable versions include those by Barb Jungr on her 2002 album Every Grain of Sand: Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan, The Persuasions on their 2010 album Knockin' on Bob's Door, Curtis Stigers on his 2012 album Let's Go Out Tonight and Bettye LaVette on her 2018 album Things Have Changed, which takes its name from the song. As he explained to Uncut, "We did 'Things Have Changed' in one afternoon, and when we were done we did a very quick mix of it, and I thought it was just going to be a rough mix to give to Bob who’d maybe give it to someone else, like Daniel Lanois, who’d wind up engineering and mixing the final thing.When it comes to ‘Things Have Changed’, Henley says it left a lasting impression on him when he first heard it: “That most recent song he did – ‘Things Have Changed’ – really knocked me out,” he said. Henley added: “I was driving around one day, and I’d never heard it before, and I thought to myself, ‘Wow, somebody is really doin’ a good Bob Dylan. De Graaf notes the images of "the last train", "all hell may break loose", "standing on the gallows with my head in a noose", all contributing to a sense of impending Armageddon: "the last battle of the end times when all powers from hell will explode in one final outburst of violence". A live version from Portsmouth, England was included on the live album Live 1961–2000: Thirty-Nine Years of Great Concert Performances.

When reflecting on iconic songs, it’s common to assume that their creation was a painstaking process, with artists meticulously refining lyrics and arrangements over an extended period until the whole thing is near-perfect. In truth, ‘Things Have Changed’ is often considered one of Dylan’s later-period gems, and rightly so. As the song progresses it's as if the narrator is becoming too tired to finish a phrase, leaving a pregnant pause before dropping the final words—but, then again, Dylan may also be adopting a trick performed by Sinatra when stretching lines and hesitating before singing the final word or phrase".By rejecting non-essential cookies, Reddit may still use certain cookies to ensure the proper functionality of our platform.
