Jokerman Songs of Bob Dylan.
Album · 1983 · 8 Songs. After a three-album foray into Christian music, Bob Dylan sounds rejuvenated on this 1983 powerhouse. While haunting biblical imagery peppers the aching pop of Jokerman, the rocking Neighborhood Bully details Israeli conflicts in the Middle East, and blues-charger Union Sundown scorns America’s outsourcing of jobs. Dylan’s heart opens on the love-addict’s ballad Don’t Fall Apart on Me Tonight, and Sweetheart Like You unfolds in bittersweet barroom pickup lines. His on-point band here includes Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler and heroic reggae rhythm section Sly Dunbar and Robbie.
Jokerman" is a song by Bob Dylan that appeared as the opening track of his 1983 album Infidels. Recorded on April 14, 1983, it was released as a single on June 1, 1984, featuring a live version of "Isis" from the film Renaldo and Clara as its B-side. In addition to appearing on Infidels, "Jokerman" appeared on several Dylan "Best of" compilations, including Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Volume 3, The Best of Bob Dylan, The Essential Bob Dylan, and the deluxe version of Dylan.
Infidels is the 22nd studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on October 27, 1983 by Columbia Records. Produced by Mark Knopfler and Dylan himself, Infidels is seen as his return to secular music, following a conversion to Christianity, three evangelical, gospel records and a subsequent return to a less religious lifestyle.
Jokerman is the first track from Dylan’s 1983 album Infidels. Standing on the waters casting your bread While the eyes of the idol with the iron head are glowing Distant ships sailing into the mist You were born with a snake in both of your fists while a hurricane was blowing Freedom just around the corner for you But with the truth so far off, what good will it do? Jokerman dance to the nightingale tune Bird fly high by the light of the moon Oh, oh, oh, Jokerman
Infidels is Bob Dylan's 22nd album. Many consider it Dylan's return to secular music, after his previous three albums all dealt with his conversion to Christianity. The album was co-produced by Dire Straits frontman, Mark Knopfler. Dylan makes reference to the Greek hero Hercules in the line, "You were born with a snake in both of your fists. According to myth, Hercules was the son of Zeus, but not by his wife Hera - he was born to a mortal woman named Alcmene.

In hindsight, Bob Dylan‘s recordings in the 1980s deserve their bad rep less for the songs – which can be tremendously potent – than for the bland production and often half-baked performances. This revisionist tribute drives that notion home. Two standouts come from 1983’s Infidels: Built to Spill turn the smooth reggae rock of Jokerman into a prickly, guitar-centric anthem of flailing faith, and Craig Finn makes the cosmic barroom come-on of Sweetheart Like You seem both sleazier and more sincere than Dylan’s.
