A few posts ago, I posted Steve Lee's I Like Guns video. This is the The Lee Band's cover of It Ain't Me, Babe. I think it is very well done.
It has an upbeat sound that makes me happy listening to it. I listened to versions by several artists and I think I like this one better than any of the others. It is somewhat hard to compare, though, because the artistry in the video contributes part of my enjoyment. The versions by the older artists are either life performances or coupled with a still shot or a collection of still shots. Trying to separate the music from the visual impression is difficult.
This version by the song's author, Bob Dylan is not appealing musically or visually. It is rather moody and uncomfortable. Perhaps a little travelogue through the counter-culture of the 60s and 70s.
It looks like many people covered this title, and I listened to parts of a few of them. Nancy Sinatra, The Turtles, Joan Baez, and others. I read through some comments on some of the videos.
It seems as though most listeners favor the song done by Johnny Cash and June Carter. I found the following rendition sung by them that someone put together using some very touching photo shots.
