OK, we're a pretty big Dylan family- he (and Joni Mitchell) was the first concert I ever saw- and I've never heard of this song. Apparently, this song is on the album "Oh Mercy", which is an album I would've never remembered if I hadn't just seen the title. I'm not saying this is a bad quiz, but I'm wondering if it's overly obscure, even though it's Dylan-based.

This song has over 100 plays in my iTunes. Naturally, I listed them all in order. Very fun to recall the broken things while singing along.
Jun 19th, 2009 at 19:25 GMT
Don't know the song. Typed in quite a lot and got only three. No mirrors or records? Hmm.

There should be a quiz on "It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding".
Jun 19th, 2009 at 20:09 GMT
Who cares if they did an entire quiz on one fairly obscure song? It's not like they didn't make it before a Rolling Stones albums quiz...

I agree with JohnJF - there are plenty of obscure quizzes on here and when you find one that caters to your area of expertise it makes for a great quiz (though I did score 0 out of 30 and that irks me).

I could only understand about half of what he said - jk :p
Jun 20th, 2009 at 02:25 GMT
I got 0/30 since I didn't know to pluralize my answers
Jun 20th, 2009 at 15:46 GMT
Man, this great quiz has been around for HOW long and I never knew about it?!
Jun 20th, 2009 at 19:17 GMT
I'm pretty sure that "Everything" should be a bonus answer.
Jun 22nd, 2009 at 04:37 GMT
clarify that this is the version from "oh mercy." on another version of the song from the bootleg series (vol. 8), the lyrics are almost completely different
Jun 24th, 2009 at 16:18 GMT
Wait a minute, "ploughs" is accepted but not "plows"?
Jun 25th, 2009 at 10:05 GMT
never heard the song, got inside Dylan's head 8 times. Now I'm gonna try to find a youtube
Jun 25th, 2009 at 10:39 GMT
amazing video. Thanks Sporcle
Aug 9th, 2009 at 06:31 GMT
"everything" should be one of the answers, I mean he only says it like 10 times in the song. This is a great song btw and a challenging quiz.
May 24th, 2010 at 18:14 GMT
I agree with 'Frank', "everything" should be a bonus answer (not a regular answer).
Feb 6th, 2011 at 11:43 GMT
You should accept "Plow" for "plough". Plow is the American spelling, and since Bob Dylan is American...well... it should really be plow (but you should accept both). Also everything needs to be an answer. Multiple times in the song the lyric "everything is broken" is repeated

should be "pots" for "Parts"
