Miley Cyrus Tributes Bob Dylan In “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” Video

Who knew Bob Dylan’s music had magical powers to turn flashy, attention-seeking pop stars into sensitive warblers? After Ke$ha showed a softer, glitter-less side by covering “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” for the Bob Dylan tribute album Chimes Of Freedom: Songs Of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, next up is Miley Cyrus, who takes on “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.” Watch the 19-year-old pop star record her tribute to the iconic singer-songwriter in her new video below.

Miley Cyrus – “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go”

The cover is a lovely, more relaxed arrangement of Dylan’s original song, and Miley sounds more raw and subtle than she’s ever sounded before. (See, Miley? You don’t need gigantic bird wings or age-inappropriate outfits in order to get people talking.)

What do you think of Miley’s cover? Is it more convincing than her attempt at channeling Nirvana? Let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments below.

    Surprisingly very nice. Good backup musicianship. Steel guitar gives it the true country feel and Miley hits it out of the park ! Hope she move on the become a good mature serious young artist and leaves the Brittany, Christina crap in her past.

    People can say what they want but as far as mainstreem pop albums go, Can’t Be Tamed was a masterpiece. This, however, is the kind of album I want from her. Beautiful.

    With this video Miley announced her self as a truly great musician in the making. Her interpretation of the Dylan song must surely make the great Bob proud himself. She displays the tremendous power and versatility of her voice as its soft vibrato/tremolo sweeps over you like a summer wind.

    Moreover, we get a glimpse of her inner self, her personality and her intimate world of feelings on love and life. She shows us Miley has soul, depth and empathy.

    But what makes the song and video so addictive is how the drab and dirty surrounding are contrasted by Miley’s stunning beauty. When the camera pans away to the room, we are left craving for another view of her face, which flits in and out of the surrounding gloom like the sun breaking through shifting gray clouds.

    The song is one of those gems that you just know is an all-timer once you hear it. And at the end she looks across at Johnzo with a flick of her eye lashes in a way that only certain women can.
