13 Songs Bob Dylan Will Sing When He Doesn't Win The Nobel Prize For Literature

Posted: Updated:

The day before the official announcement, Bob Dylan was installed as UK betting company Ladbrokes' favorite to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.

As we didn't think he had a harmonica's chance in hell of winning, we thought we'd helpfully come up with a playlist for the gravelly voiced folkmaster to sing as he copes with his sad defeat.

Was this a joke, or was he a serious contender for the prize? One of us must know (sooner or later). Tell us your thoughts in the comments as you singalong with Bob, perhaps one-day winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature!
