Mark Ronson’s remix of the classic Bob Dylan track “Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine)” will have its global radio premiere on August 11. However, a snippet has been made available on Dylan’s website already.
As might have been expected, Ronson has put the horn riff and the rolling breakbeat of the original to the forefront, making the “Blonde On Blonde” track sound more like a vintage soul tune (in the vein of his Amy Winehouse productions) and not the “hip hop” remix that many had anticipated.

It’s worth noting, by the way, that “Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine)” is not strictly the first officially-sanctioned Dylan remix, contrary to all the pre-publicity. Italian hip-hoppers Articolo 31 cut up “Like A Rolling Stone” on the soundtrack to Dylan’s “Masked And Anonymous” movie.
Ronson’s effort, we think, is better than that, at least. Read one Uncut response at our daily Wild Mercury Sound blog.
But how do you feel about it? Is “Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine)” an inspired relaunch of the great man, or an unforgivable act of sacrilege? Let us know. . .
