The recent griping among disgruntled Bob Dylan fans over <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2007/06/21/the-battle-over-the-next-bob-dylan-compilation/">Columbia's plans to let fans vote on the songs</a> to be included on an <a href="http://www.dylan07.com">upcoming Dylan best-of compilation</a> has one silver lining. (Other than comments on <a href="http://pool.dylantree.com/phorum5/read.php?1,800438">Dylan message boards</a> that sound eerily like Dylan lyrics, such as "If this is the stick, who's the dead horse?") It's encouraged otherwise all-forgiving Dylan fans to remember their hero's other ill-advised commercial moves, like 1987's Joe Eszterhas–rewritten movie flop <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hearts_of_Fire"><em>Hearts of Fire</em></a>. Thankfully, remembering our heroes' foolish pasts is what YouTube is for.
