John Wesley Harding – Making Love to Bob Dylan


Music has never lacked for boot-knocking soundtracks, from Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” to Lovage’s Music To Make Your Old Lady By.

But what happens when the parties involved have trouble agreeing on a soundtrack? Something like what goes down in the video for John Welsey Harding’s “Making Love To Bob Dylan,” an unreleased song from the veteran English singer-songwriter.

But there’s a twist here: It’s Harding, whose stage name is borrowed from the Bob Dylan song and album title, who can’t perform to Robert Zimmerman’s musical stylings, no matter how much his partner Janeane Garofalo wants to. (Too Malkovich Malkovich?)

Harding does his best to find a compromise — What about the Beach Boys? Maybe Massive Attack? Come on, not even T. Rex?? — but Garofalo isn’t having it.
