If you're looking for serious clickbait, you've come to the right place!
While the song itself has seriously divided online opinion - we're firmly in the "Fuck, yeah!" camp - we think you'll enjoy the Spotify Playlist Of The Songs Referenced In Bob Dylan's 'Murder Most Foul' that has been painstakingly compiled by American NPR's Bob Boilen and Ann Powers.
From The Beatles' 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' to Hoagy Carmichael's 'Memphis In June', they've rounded them all up. Or have they? If you've spotted a reference they haven't they want to hear from you.

Proving that he's a top man as well as a wonderful, wonderful songwriter, The Late David Turpin has gifted us a free instrumental version of his Romances album, which is proving to be a real stress-buster in the virtual HP Towers.
Sometimes I find instrumentals relaxing to listen to. So today I released the Instrumentals from ROMANCES, via Bandcamp, for anyone who feels the same way.
The collection is free to download. I'm proud of this music and I hope it brings some pleasure.https://t.co/Sat5OAdOQS pic.twitter.com/U2LciEFlNo

Kudos too to the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra who had 19 musicians in different digital places performing Beethoven's Ode To Joy, which more than lived up to the billing.

Senator Fintan Warfield suggests some excellent ways to virtually swap bodily fluids during the current lockdown. We're currently half-way through number four and thoroughly enjoying ourselves...
Social distancing applies to hook ups and sex. So explore other ways to satisfy your needs. Phone sex, cam-sex, reading erotica, watching porn or just plain old masturbation. #MPOWER have some important things to say here: https://t.co/ns83sgCcyl @Adlers1
