I have been a fan of Bob Dylan since the 1960s. I don't like every song that he has churned out, but this song is one of his best.

I heard "Positively 4th Street" during my teen years, meaning that the music and lyrics hit me at a time when I was vulnerable, my mind was often in turmoil, and I was forming crucial adolescent friendships.

The piping sound of the organ, the supporting guitars, the punctuating percusssion, and Dylan's sarcastic tongue hit me where I lived. The lyrics caused me to examine my own relationships, especially with people who didn't seem to care a lot for me! In other words, I loved this song as a teenager, and still go back to it when someone disappoints me!

I have too say this is my favorite Bob Dylan song........never included on an album except for the Bob Dylans Greatest Hits Album (and u will look forever trying to find this song unless u know this) originally released as a single and is basically an obscure item in Dylans long storied career and discography..."and just for that one moment i could be you".............."The Toad".....

Dylan deserves a Nobel Prize for his literary insights, and opening people's eyes to the Vietnam situation, not to mention insights into themslves, as well as the society they were, and are, living in. POSITIVELY 4th Street is one of his greatest pieces.

For only $0.50, you can't beat it!!! Aye-tunes (or similar mp3 websites) have never offered a major
artist at these prices. Suggest you do the same for The Beatles, Rolling Stones, or other MAJOR
artists from this era.

It's Bob... what more is there? Possibly the best put down in song history....
"I wish that for just one time, I could be you....
You'd know what a drag it is to see you"
Gotta love Bob :-)

Dylan is the best! Not much to add to that. I was able to download my single favorite song without having to buy the whole album. I lived on E. 4th St. in NYC so I love this song!!!

My favorite line in all of music, "Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes,
you’d know what a drag it is to see you."

its positively 4th street, a sentinel work in the growth of the entire rock music scene. Besides being a really great song you can listen to for 50 years!
