Dylan

surpises me. turns out he took Hootie and the Blowfish to court for verses in the song "Only want to be with you". Why hassle them over this, they were paying homage if anything... According to Songfacts, "Dylan sued the group for unauthorized use of his lyrics. He received a large, out-of-court settlement". I say, what a prick. You be the judge...

Lyrics for: Only Want To Be With You - Hootie and the Blowfish

You and me, We come from different worlds
You like to laugh at me when I look at other girls
Sometimes you're crazy and you wonder why
I'm such a baby cause the Dolphins make me cry

Well there's nothing I can do, I've been looking for a girl like you

You look at me, You've got nothing left to say
I'll only pout at you until I get my way
I won't dance, You won't sing, I just want to love you but you want to wear my ring.

Chorus:
Well there's nothing I can do, I only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool, Only wanna be with you

Put on a little Dylan, Sitting on a fence
I say that line is great, You ask me what I meant by
"Said I shot a man named Gray, Took his wife to italy
She inherited a million bucks, And when she died it came to me, I can't help it if I'm lucky",
I Only wanna be with you
Ain't Bobby so cool, Only wanna be with you

(solo)

Yeah I'm tangled up in blue, Only wanna be with you
You can call me your fool, Only wanna be with you

Yeah...that seems kinda petty of Bob...esp. in light of all the lyrics he has "borrowed" over the years.Wierd

...is blowin' in courts!

Yeah, I agree, it is kinda petty but property is property and if the H&tB did not ask for permission then they are clearly wrong.

Led Zep, Yardbirds, most blues groups all borrowed shamelessly. Now it's all corporate. Thank Sony for that!
