Happy birthday, Bob Dylan

Robert Zimmerman is 71 years old today. You're right -- that doesn't have much to do with raqs.


This is a rough-cut of Bob Dylan's You Ain't Going Nowhere, complete with improvised lyrics and music, that some charming soul has created a video for. I have no idea who the dancer is, but although that costume looks familiar I'm guessing she was a burlesque artiste. Otherwise, just what do you call this sort of dancing? "The Bad Posture Shuffle"? "The Leg Flash Mash"?:

Oh Lor', Ma, I could see her knickers!

  1. This reminds me of a Red Nose Day special of French and Saunders when they spoofed Mamma Mia. The director (Miranda Hart) told Joanna Lumley to squat down in order to fit inside the camera because she was taller than Jennifer and Dawn.

    You people have the best comedians.

  2. Dude! Now I just want a French and Saunders belly dance skit.
