"The Man in Me" is a song from Bob Dylan's 1970 albumNew Morning. The early seventies marked a slow point in Dylan's music production, and after New Morning, Dylan focused on literary pursuits.
It is featured in the soundtrack to the 1998 Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski. It plays during the stylized opening title sequence and during the hallucination sequence after the Dude is punched and his rug stolen. More recently it has been performed live by the film's star, Jeff Bridges, at Lebowski Fest, an audience-participation oriented event commemorating the film.
