When speaking of a country classic ballad, then it’s definitely Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.” The song merely depicts the beauty of great music in the past. With this, let’s recollect how beautiful country music is back in the days.

“Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” has a sound of feel-good music. It gives a sense of relaxation once it hits your eardrums. Perhaps, the lyrics are light yet straightforward saying that everything is fine. Also, the melody has a fast-paced guitar strum which sends shivers down your spine and tickles your imagination.

Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright…

It has been fifty-six years ago since “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” has been released. It’s been more than five decades but the song has the power to bring you back in the 60’s. Bob Dylan wrote the words and lyrics of the said song. He recorded the song in 1962. A year later, he released the single under his album “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.” Moreover, it was the same album that provided us the massive song “Blowin’ in the Wind.”

Furthermore, “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” was a well-crafted ballad as it gives a well-detailed line. However, some lines, tunes, and melodies were taken from the folk song “Who’s Gonna Buy You Ribbons When I’m Gone?”

Many of Bob Dylan’s album include “Don’t Think Twice; It’s Alright.” These albums are “Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol II” (1971), “The Best of Bob Dylan” (1997), and “The Essential Bob Dylan” (2000). On the other hand, the song is perhaps one of the most coveted and recorded country hits. Many various artists re-recorded and re-released their cover versions such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Glen Campbell, Dolly Parton, Randy Travis, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Reed, and a lot more.
