For years after I began hearing the song everywhere. I'd walk by a laundry mat and catch the chorus as someone walked out. Flipping through channels it's there in the background on Cold Case or CSI or some damn thing. I became haunted by "Black Coffee in Bed." I still wonder whether radio and tv programmers were that influenced by Dylan's TTRH or whether the song is always playing, a constant steady cosmic hum that can be tapped in and out of.

If you're at all surprised about the song's inclusion on TTRH, check this out. It's kind of like Masked and Anonymous, but better plotted.
