About this deal

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.

Song to Woody", "Highlands" and "Blowin' in the Wind" recorded live at Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, Santa Cruz, California on March 16, 2000. 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.The video appears on the bonus DVD included in the Limited Edition version of Dylan's 2006 album Modern Times.

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". Shaw hoped to include this unreleased version on Volume 8 of Dylan's Bootleg Series, Tell Tale Signs. 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.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. I knew it was in the movie "Wonder Boys," which I watched last night (The movie is OK - the song is the best part). Filmmaker David Lynch quoted the song in his daily "weather report" on November 18, 2020: "This morning I woke up thinking of the line, 'People are crazy and times are strange', this line from the song 'Things Have Changed' by the great Bob Dylan". It is nothing outstanding, but is a welcome addition to the scarcity of commercially-available live tracks. 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.

Willoughby, Sydney, New South Wales, 25 March 2001, Taping for the Oscar Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles, California". 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. He intercut footage of Dylan with sequences from the feature film, to suggest that Dylan was interacting with the film's characters.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

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. These themes align with Dylan’s recurrent motifs and offer a poignant reflection on personal experiences, seamlessly integrating into the context of Wonder Boys. Among the very first was country singer Waylon Jennings who made it a staple of his final live shows in 2000 and 2001. In his awards speech, broadcast from Sydney, Dylan said: "I want to thank the members of the Academy who were bold enough to give me this award for this song, which obviously is a song that doesn't pussyfoot around nor turn a blind eye to human nature".Gray sees Dylan's line "I'm looking up into the sapphire-tinted skies" as an allusion to Shelley's phrase "sapphire-tinted skies" in line 71 of "Written among the Euganean Hills, North Italy". In an article accompanying the list, critic Jacob Nierenberg noted that "'Things Have Changed' packages familiar themes—love gone wrong, the inevitability of time, Judgment Day—in a bluesy stomp that begins with Dylan receiving a lap dance from an assassin-eyed woman and peaks with him hauling another off in a wheelbarrow. This makes it his ninth most frequently performed live song ever and the only Dylan song since the 1970s on the list of his top 10 most performed songs. Its success in the world of film and the Academy Award win introduced a new audience to Dylan’s music and reaffirmed his influence in the world of songwriting and performance. Dylan also made a surprise televised appearance to perform the song at the American Film Institute Awards 2009 where Wonder Boys star Michael Douglas received the Lifetime Achievement award.
