New MP3 - "I'm Not There (1956)" by Bob Dylan. One of Dylan's greatest songs despite the fact that he never really finished writing it (as you can tell by the even-more-mumbly-than-usual parts during the verses where he's obviously fudging the words). Despite the fact that you really can't understand what he's saying and the song's lack of narrative sense, he somehow manages to evoke distance and regret and loss.
