Below the fold you will find the video for one of Bob Dylan’s most intriguing songs – Jokerman. The video itself is a nice piece of work with some really striking visuals which illustrate the lyrics quite powerfully. The song is open to a lot of interpretation, as could be said of Dylan’s work generally but this one in particular seems even more richly so.

I think it’s a song about each human being’s capacity for both good and evil. The fascinating Tangled up in Jews website seems to think it’s really a song about Dylan himself.

Anyway, judge for yourself below the fold.
