Watch Miley Cyrus Cover Bob Dylan’s ‘You’re Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go’
There is a very long Bob Dylan tribute album coming out tomorrow, with all proceeds going to Amnesty International. It’s a good cause, but at 76 songs long, there’s bound to be a handful of WTF-ery buried in between the Patti Smith and the Johnny Cash. Case in point: Miley Cyrus being tasked with "You’re Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go," one of the more plaintive tracks off Dylan’s classic Blood on the Tracks. If your inner rockism hasn’t rage-jolted you into a coma, you can watch the newly released music video after the click.
It makes a certain kind of sense — Cyrus is trying to transition to a post-Disney life, and nothing screams "I’M SERIOUS!" more than an earnest Bob Dylan cover. Her version isn’t bad, more country than Dylan’s take but certainly pleasant enough with the steel guitar and the Southern twang. If you don’t believe me, ask YouTube user Sarafulla99: "Miley Is Lovely, funny, beautiful, sweet, adorable, stunning, strong, talented. She Is An Inspiration She will Always Be Till I die <3 I Don’t Understand Why People Hate Her <3 Thumbs Up If Support Her And Your Are A Smiler ;)" Beautifully phrased.
