Subject: RE: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
All that's needed for schmalz to become subversive is sing it with a harde-edged sneer in the voice. Something Dylan always understood.

"Hey Little Girl", for example, could be turned on its head, treated that way. So could any of that last bunch Joe put up to be shot down.
