Obviously very tough to narrow it down given the insane amount of varied music he's put out, but just for fun.

exclusively 60's stuff apart from Shelter. I'm one of "those people" who can't get beyond Dylan as a folk singer. That's what he is to me simply because that's the music I fell in love with. It gave me my love for the genre. When I think Bob Dylan I think of his first three records from '62-'64, and me as a teenager listening to those tracks on Grooveshark (remember Grooveshark?) and falling down the rabbit hole.
Um, you have to forgive me posting the song below which I feel is the greatest "unreleased" song in Rock history in this take (the released version is lesser) and one of the greatest vocals by anyone - ever. In many ways it's my very favorite Dylan song period even and the one I first think of with him from when he was so awe-inspiring Godlike it's scary how much he had at his disposal......... tossed off, funny, romantic (to her) mean (to him), sexy as fnck, whip smart, lyrics that are endlessly and weirdly fascinating ("bloodhounds that kneel" I find particularly brilliant) that you don't necessarily "see" until the 100th play of the song.
He is to me the most important and influential American artist of the 20th century - not merely as a poet and songwriter (that too) but as an artist in any form - and that includes actors/directors (Brando/Scorsese), writers (Fitzgerald/Hemingway), painters (Pollock etc.), musicians (Hendrix/Miles Davis).
