What do you know?!

Bob Dylan is great. Avril Lavigne is typical pop. But guess what? Lavigne actually covers a Dylan song....Knockin on Heaven's Door.

I was so surprised.....Bob Dylan apparently influenced more people than I know. I've really liked Blood on the Tracks, and I will be posting a review of it soon. Lavigne doesn't actually add much to the song...it just sounds the same, except in a smoother female voice instead of Dylan's authentic folk-style one. I still thought that was cool though. Surprises surprises...kind of like Nickel Creek covering Brittany Spear's song Toxic.
