«Abandoned Love» er en sang skrevet av Bob Dylan, spilt inn i 1975, men ikke utgitt før i 1985, på samlealbumet Biograph. Den ble egentlig spilt inn til albumet hans Desire fra 1976. Men ble erstattet av «Joey». «Abandoned Love» ble skrevet under Dylans skilsmisse med hans daværende kone Sara Lownds. Sangen var i begynnelsen av The Rolling Thunder Revue en del av Dylans soloshow. Han spilte den en gang på Bitter End cafe i Bleecker Street i Greenwich Village den 3. juli 1975, i løpet av ett show med Ramblin' Jack Elliott.[1] Paul Cable beskrev i sin bok, Bob Dylan: His Unreleased Recordings (New York: Schirmer Books, 1980), liveversjonen som "Beautiful, eerie, easily as good as Blonde on Blonde lyrics and a tune that is unusual and perfect."

"On a Thursday night in July 1975, I headed out to see Ramblin' Jack Elliott at The Bitter End in New York City ... Their first song was 'Pretty Boy Floyd,' with Bob singing harmony and his guitar buzzing right along. Then Jack started 'How Long Blues.' After the first verse, he looked at Bob in a way that seemed to ask him to sing a verse. Bob simply shook his head and mouthed something inaudible. When the song finished, however, Dylan began strumming his guitar. But since it was still buzzing, he asked Jack to trade instruments with him. At that moment, everyone in the room was in a trance; it's not every day one gets to hear an impromptu Bob Dylan performance in a tiny club. After a couple of lines, we realized he was performing a new song, with each line getting even better than the last. The song was 'Abandoned Love,' and it still is the most powerful performance I've ever heard."
