The Bob Dylan’s "Like a Rolling Stone" was recorded as
part of the sessions for the forthcoming album Highway
61 Revisited
. The song reached No. 2 in the Billboard
charts (No. 1 in Cashbox) and became a worldwide hit.

Critics have described the song as revolutionary in its
combination of different musical elements, the youthful,
cynical sound of Dylan’s voice, and the directness of the
question "How does it feel?" "Like a Rolling Stone"
completed the transformation of Dylan’s image from
folk singer to rock star, and is considered one of the
most influential compositions in postwar popular music.
(Wikipedia)

At an auction in 2014, Dylan’s handwritten lyrics to the
song fetched $2 million, a world record for a popular
music manuscript.
