No Reason To Get Excited

Written in 1967
by Bob Dylan, it was originally quiet, lowkey... and vaguely menacing
. But when Jimi Hendrix
redefined it the following year
, even Dylan knew
that the song had changed forever.
Since then, it's been covered
(over and over again
), praised almost as often
, and, of course, found to be encoded in the minds of Cylons.
Originally released 40 years ago, erm, yesterday: All Along the Watchtower.
