89. ‘Things Have Changed’ by Bob Dylan (2000)

Wonder Boys, the film for which this was written (and for which Dylan won an Oscar), is my coming-of-age film of choice, and this shuffley little number from Bob benefits by association.  It’s relatively straightforward I guess, and arguably unremarkable in the context of Dylan’s oeuvre, but it’s wit and world-weariness get me every time. 

Bonus points: It makes me imagine Bob Dylan in drag, which is a potent image to say the least.
