Subject: RE: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan
He's still doing it.

"Beyond the Horizon" on Modern Times uses the tune of "Red Sails in the Sunset" by Dublin songwrtiter Jimmy Kennedy.

I have no problem with Dylan recycling melodies, but why claim words and music by Bob Dylan when he clearly didn't compose a lot of them?
