@emurdo: ummm, Google much?!? Lmao! I doubt you even knew one song by Bob Dylan until now, It’s halarious the bounds some kids will leap to criticize someone they’ve never meet. Go out and enjoy your life before someone drops a house on YOU! Hahaha!!!

she needs to stick to country-esque music like this. her version of smells like teen spirit made me want to kill myself.

@vdsm: Miley has a great voice for pop, folk and country. But that teen spirit thing is not on any Miley album, she just did it a few times in concert. Lots of bands do that. I don’t even think that Smells song is that great by anyone. She did a nice job on Bob Dylan’s song, but I think she should have slowed it down to make it more sad. Her singing was great though.

@emurdo: Miley has a great voice. That’s why she was asked to do it. And yeah I have a few Bob Dylan CDs too.

Sounds stunning, looks gorgeous. Can we get this from itunes or just amazon?


I can see why a lot of people like this version if you’re a bit younger. However, Miley truly isn’t worthy of covering Bob Dylan. She didn’t make me cringe and if I didn’t know Bob Dylan’s version then I would say it is probably the best she has sounded but it doesn’t mean she should be able to cover Bob Dylan. Didn’t she just say she didn’t want to do music and just work on film? Choose one. Pref. film.


She should do some country music though. This song is right in her vocal pocket. And I don’t think anyone needs to prove to anyone how many Bob Dylans cd’s they have. Everyone has their own opinion. You don’t have to agree with what people think and you probably aren’t going to change anyone’s mind so why not just state your opinion and move on?

Wow! She is really good.

@anna: Get over yourself honey.. lol!!

Surprised to hear myself say this but she did a great job.. Won’t have listened if it wasn’t a Dylan cover but impressed. Made me go back and find the lyrics and listen to the originally. Good Stuff.

I found it here:

Love it!!!!

Fantastic! Her voice has matured right along with her!
She sounds great!

I guess being a former child star, Miley will always have to put up with being criticized for everything she does, no matter how well she does it.
Like her or not, This IS a great cover of Bobs song

Ive never heard the original song but I have always loved Miley Cyrus. I think she is a beautiful and talented young woman with so much potential. I’m a hardcore MC fan. All you haters can keep hating cause that young woman singing right there doesn’t care. Do you really think that your stupid comments hurt her? Nope. Let your haters be your motivators!

Great job Miley. I love who you are and will be.


I’ve always been a fan of Miley Cyrus. She’s an amazing person with an amazing voice but I’m not a fan of this song. Sorry Miley! *** :)

I love this cover! She’s so awesome XD

Always loved the original and was ready to furiously hate this, but really, it’s actually quite lovely. Well done, Miley!

Stop making my ears bleed! What’s with the vocal acrobatics. Just sing the damn song.

Miley song stands on it own. Gives new life to these old bones =]

Wow! She sounds great!!! Her voice is beautiful

I heard about this song yesterday , And boy were they right! It’s really really good!! Miley was a great choice for the first single off the tribute album, She always creates buzz!
This is an wonderful cover to an amazing song!
Can’t wait for the entire album to come out

Wow. After all these years… We have finally found the girl who can play the lead in that Janis Joplin bio pic screenplay that has been kicked around Hollywood by every A-list agent for the past 19 years.

Agree. Miley did a good job. She should sing country more often. Better than singing fake “POP” which is generic at best.

Song perfectly suits her voice
