Pittsburgh's G20 Soundtrack: #10

Just like a Scorcese film, Pittsburgh's G20 experience deserves a good soundtrack.

I understand the Secret Service has informed local officials that, with the notable exceptions of the Convention Center, the William Penn Hotel and the immediate vicinity of the President of the United States, the feds could not care less what happens in or to Pittsburgh during the G20 event.

In other words, Luke and Dan, 'How does it feel ... to be on your own?'

Number 10 on the G20 hit parade (Infinonyvision, center column), and, according to Rolling Stone, the greatest song, period:
Like A Rolling Stone.

As Bruce Springsteen observed when inducting Dylan into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: "The first time I heard Bob Dylan, I was in the car with my mother listening to WMCA, and on came that snare shot that sounded like somebody had kicked open the door to your mind."

Here comes that snare, Pittsburgh.
