Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues"
Shooting of the promotional film
for Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" took place at the
side of the Savoy Hotel in London. Actors in the background were Allen
Ginsberg and Bob Neuwirth. The cards that Dylan held up to the camera
were painted by Alan Price and Joan Baez.
The song has had a wide influence,
resulting in iconic references by artists and non-artists alike. Most
famously, its lyric "you don't need a weatherman to know which
way the wind blows" was the inspiration for the name of the American
radical left group the Weathermen, a breakaway from the Students for
a Democratic Society.
Beatle John Lennon was reported to find the song
so "captivating" that he didn't know how he'd be able to write
a song that could "compete" with it.
