500 Greatest Songs of All Time
Bob Dylan, 'Just Like a Woman'
Producer: Bob Johnston
Released: May '66, Columbia
6 weeks; No. 33
Dylan wrote this on Thanksgiving Day 1965 - three days after marrying Sara Lowndes - while on tour in Kansas City. His nonstop creative rush was taking a big toll. "I don't consider myself outside of anything," he said at the time. "I just consider myself not around." He turned his torment into this song, allegedly inspired by his recently ended affair with doomed Andy Warhol starlet Edie Sedgwick.
