When R. Kelly stopped by the Rolling Stone office last week, he made some salaciously sexy songs out of improbable subjects like an Italian hero sandwich and, well, a dolphin. “I know how to put it into a melody and make it comical, but sexual at the same time,” the R&B star said in an interview for the next issue of the magazine. “With my gift, I can pretty much write a song out of anything.” Here’s the proof:

“Like A Rolling Stone” is a world renown tune written, composed and performed by Bob Dylan in 1965. Its confrontational lyrics originate in an extended piece of verse Dylan wrote in June 1965, when he returned exhausted from a grueling tour of England. After the lyrics were heavily edited, “Like a Rolling Stone” was recorded a few weeks later as part of the sessions for the forthcoming album Highway 61 Revisited. During a difficult two-day preproduction, Dylan struggled to find the essence of the song, which was demoed without success in 3/4 time. A breakthrough was made when it was tried in a rock music format, and rookie session musician Al Kooper improvised the organ riff for which the track is known. However, Columbia Records was unhappy with both the song’s length at over six minutes and its heavy electric sound, and was hesitant to release it. It was only when a month later a copy was leaked to a new popular music club and heard by influential DJs that the song was put out as a single. Although radio stations were reluctant to play such a long track, “Like a Rolling Stone” reached number two in the US charts and became a worldwide hit. All of this happened during a time well before music videos as we know them today.
48 years later, artist and director Vania Heymann worked for 2 months to create a visual to accompany the song, and it’s a very special one. As the music plays, you can flip between 16 channels of simulated TV programming. But whether you’re watching a financial news update, a romantic comedy, or a tennis tournament, it looks authentic except that everyone seems to be lip-synching the lyrics of the song. While many of the channels are peopled by actors, the lineup is peppered with numerous celebrity performers such as comedian Marc Maron, rapper Danny Brown, the hosts of Pawn Stars, and Drew Carey (on the set of The Price Is Right). The overall effect is head-spinning but incredibly compelling: the more you surf through the “Like a Rolling Stone” video, the more the song’s contempt seems to be addressed to all of western civilization. By the time you land on a vintage live performance of the actual Bob Dylan, he feels like the only real person in existence. Watch the impressive video HERE.
