Make You Feel My Love.

Dylan getting the Nobel Prize is validating, and very moving, to see songwriting recognized as great literature.

Though I've always been more of a Townes Van Zandt and Leonard Cohen guy, I think every songwriter has maybe half a dozen songs that, when they sit down to write they think, maybe not consciously, "I will strive today to write something that good, and this is one of those songs for me. The way I know it's great is that, no matter who sings it, it retains all its power and depth.

Starting with 3 of my favorite singers, and then some guy.
