Alphabetical index of all 530 songs written by Dylan

Complete song review index in alphabetical order

Please note:  This site reviews every song composed by Bob Dylan (either alone or with a fellow songwriter) of which we can find a recording.  Along the way (especially in the early years of this site) we included a few songs that were not written by Dylan and these are now listed at the end.

But in this regard Bob’s official site doesn’t always help us.  For example, regarding “Corrina Corrina” the official site says “Written by Bob Dylan (arr)”.   What does that mean – surely he either wrote it or he arranged it.  I don’t think he did, so I’ve put it in the list of non-Dylan compositions at the end.

At present we have 530 Dylan compositions or co-compositions listed.  If you spot a mistake please write to
