While watching some of those delightful late night tv shows (Jay Leno and Conan O’Brian) I had an opportunity to watch a delightful commercial. I was just sitting, lounging on the futon in our basement. A rhythm guitar started the steady beat and a rough voice rasped over-top. The pictures on the screen was of a scantly clad woman with wings.
I said to myself, “That sounds like Bob Dylan. Hot Damn!”
I dug into my limited Dylan collection to see if I could identify the song. No mistake. The same song on the commercial is the first track from “Time Out of Mind” titled Lovesick.
Their basic point is, Dylan to sell underwear? “Is nothing sacred?”
I tend to agree with them to a point. While it is odd and not something I would choose for a Dylan song, the commercial and the song fit together well.
But… but… still! Dylan and… porn! (For that is all Victoria’s Secret commercials are.) Arrrg!
