Zeppelin, not sure if you know, but just to clarify, Leonard Cohen was the one who wrote Hallejulah, Buckley's was a cover. Not that it matters, The Jeff Buckely version is the best, a great song. Also, As a Dylan fan, I would pick about 10 songs before hurricane. Obviously it's personal preference, but if you got into that song through the film (like tons of people I know), let me offer you some great Dylan to listen to.
Sara, Visions of Johanna, Shelter From the Storm, Tamborine Man, Don't think Twice, it's alright, Desolation Row, Gates of Eden, It's all over now, Baby BLue, Blowin' in the Wind, Tangled up in Blue, Like a ROlling Stone, and many others.
Not nocking your choice, but I am always eager to convert people to Dylan loving.
My 10. in no order, of what I am listening to now.
1. Visions of Johanna - Bob Dylan
2. Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix
3. One - U2
4. Exit Music For a Film - Radiohead
5. All the Dylan songs above
6. Old Man - Neil YOung
7. Killing in the name of - RATM
8. Because we can - Fatboy Slim
9. 1983 - Jimi Hendrix
10. Don't ever tell me - Madonna

Obviously, some of these are more classic than others, but this is to me a killer song list.
