Personal: The Setlist for Seeing Paul Simon and Bob Dylan in Concert Together

The best night of live music in my life, to this point. A great night with Mark, Erik, Emily and Chris. Five-and-a-half hours of music, although when I made that mental note, I'm not sure whether I was even counting the BoDeans' opening set. Either way, it was five-and-a-half hours of dancing to some of the greatest songs of this past century, so physically and emotionally wringing me out that I felt like I'd been beaten with rods by the end of it all.
