  • Favorite Dire Straits Song

    This is killer and playing is so intricate! Lot's going on that doesn't necessarily pop out at you.

    It Never Rains - last track on Love over gold. imo easily Mark's best guitar playing and how intertwines with the organ and Pick's drumming is out of this world.

      Pretty much anything from the first album, but Southbound Again, Setting Me Up and In the Gallery are particular favorites.

      edit: can't pick just one.

        If this did not reduce you to tears the firs time you heard it, I would recommend a heart transplant

          Once Upon a Time in the West and Ride Across the River. I got too much of the really popular songs on MTV back in the day. I've always been a B-side kind of guy anyways.

            That's a fascinating comment! Never quite thought of it that way. There are some albums that feel exactly the same way about too including one tape that I'm currently reviewing. And it makes all the sense in the world. A-side for the popular tunes, B-side for the real music.

              Can't pick just one song that stands above the rest. Like PF and APP I tend to listen to Dire Straits albums as a running collection of songs since they flow so well together.

                +1 Love that song.
                Other favorites: Telegraph Road; Sultans of Swing
                And then of course, pretty much everything else that's in my Dire Straits collection (lol)

                      Tunnel Of Love.
                      The last 2:20 is one of the most moving guitar solos I have ever heard. Makes my hair stand up every time.

                        Great choice! I went back and relistened to that track from one of my favorite Dire Straits album and you are spot on! Only problem is I don't have the hair I once had.

                              Great concert. Mark performed one of the best versions of Sultans at this concert but strangely it has been left out of the DVD issue. Was lucky to have seen this tour....totally awesome. Sydney concert is also great with some great guitar work.
                          Working...
