3. 'Shelter From the Storm'

Blood on the Tracks is filled with songs where Dylan looks back on an ideal relationship that fell completely to pieces. In a rare move, he's even willing to share some of the blame. "Now there's a wall between us, somethin' there's been lost," he sings on "Shelter From the Storm." "I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed." But, as always with Dylan, there's no going back, and she's now merely a fond memory. An alternate take of the song was used on the soundtrack for Jerry Maguire. Should they ever got around to a Blood on the Tracks Bootleg Series, we'll hopefully get to hear a lot more like it.
