I was trying to come up with a list of Beatle or solo-Beatle songs that
make reference to Bob Dylan.

I could come up with three....

1. Beatles -Yer Blues
(feel so suicidal just like Dylan's Mr. Jones..)
2. Lennon - Give Peace a Chance
(..Bobby Dylan....)
3. Lennon - God
(..I don't believe in Zimmerman...)

are there any others??
I'm not sure why I want to know this; I guess that I just like to know
trival facts

Following on Lennon's "I don't believe in Zimmerman" theme, he did an
angry parody of "Gotta Serve Somebody" called "Serve Yourself" in which
he stated that what Dylan was really yearning for was not God but his mother
(a common Lennon theme, though not a common Dylan theme).

I don't know if this would really count, but in the song "Dig It", John
yells "Like A Rolling Stone."
