This word cloud comes from the Bob Dylan album, Oh Mercy.
It’s the top 100 words used throughout the album and set to the same colors as the album cover. Large version is here.
The story: I regularly analyze Bob Dylan’s lyrics and thought it would be a cool exercise to see what words he uses most often. It helps to get in the mind of the writer.

Thanks for doing this!
I’ve been looking for a database for the most used words by Dylan. This is really helpful.
I think I might do this with individual songs.
did you use wordle?

You’re welcome! Yes. I used Wordle.
This word cloud is from Down In The Groove, not Oh Mercy. The colors chosen are great, as is the rest of this series. But the words are drawn from the wrong album.
Yes, Aaron, my thought when I saw the cloud.
