Absolutely, Obviously, Most Likely, Positively, Approximately - this week’s Definitely Dylan Live is all about Bob Dylan’s adverbs! For a brief moment in the “groovy” mid-sixties, Dylan loved to add adverbs to his song titles, and this hour is dedicated to those songs, as Laura and Robert speculate what the adverbs might mean or whether they are completely random.
Are there any post-1966 songs that should be added to the list? What do you think the meaning behind those adverbs is? Let us know in the comments!
