Song of the Day #1,321: ‘Make You Feel My Love’ – Beyond1Music

I’ve come across several dozen covers of ‘Make You Feel My Love’ from Bob Dylan’s 1997 album Time Out of Mind, but just about every one of them is described as an Adele cover.

No doubt many, if not most, of those singers believe Adele wrote the song. It’s not as if her version is different from Dylan’s (apart from the vocals, of course) so that covering Adele’s version is somehow different from covering Dylan’s. She was faithful to the original.

So I give a lot of credit to this attractive young girl, Julia, who goes by the YouTube moniker Beyond1Music, for describing her version as a Dylan cover. She also sweetly comments that her grandfather is a big Dylan fan and that she recorded this for him.

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

    A bit rough on the guitar work, but still very sweet.

    And the fact that it is her GRANDFATHER, not even her father, who was the Dylan fan just makes me feel so very old.

    I’m more familiar with the Dylan version of this song than Adele’s Just played her version though to hear the difference, which isn’t too significant other than the piano vs. guitar. I had always assumed all the songs on 19 were originals. Guess I was wrong.

    She also has a cover on 21 — ‘Lovesong’ by The Cure. Her version is very different and very good. Tell Maddie to give it a listen. 🙂
