If you're not familiar with Bob Dylan's famous film clip for "Subterranean Homesick Blues" (they sure didn't call them "videos" back in 1965), YouTube has it here:
And Wikipedia has some fascinating background on it here:
Very cool. But the purpose of this post is to share my discovery of Weird Al Yankovic's take on the song, called, "Bob", with lyrics made entirely from palindromes (!!!):
Wow... This is why Weird Al Yankovic is a freaking genius. Normally the use of palindromes in a song is lost because the listener doesn't have a way to visualize the lyrics. Yankovic looks to Dylan's flip cars for the solution. Also note how he's got all the detail in there, even down to the shadowy Allen Ginsberg character.
Comedy skit idea: Record company producers are negotiating with Bob Dylan about producing a modern remix of "Subterranean Homesick Blues", replacing the flip cards with a PowerPoint presentation. Hilarity ensues.
Speaking of palindromes in songs, here is They Might Be Giant's wonderful performance of "I Palindrome I" on Letterman in 1992:
I think it's great how John Linnell is not only able to use a word-level palindrome for the bridge, but he's able to sing it so well, getting out that awkward set of words and phrasing and also diving right into the third verse without catching a breath.
