Regarding UK/US,someone famously once said:
'Two nations divided by a common language'. Who said that? A pedant,obviously,but who in particular?
Val--on the mid-section of NA,it's one of those electronic FX an octave above my vox--a sort of ghost in the machine.
A hard club,MK? You'd have stiff competition to reach pole position.

reading this thread was very funny: I never thought that could be difficult to understand what someone says (or sings) in your same own language!
It's strange for me because in italian is very hard to confuse a word with another and it's quite strange to see that even english and "american" are so different languages!

At the end of line 4 above, my favorite part of that song is the quick transition from "son" directly into "the age of Gemini".

It just gives a nice feel to that part of the song, and I am sure Dylan will appreciate it for many years to come.
