I Sincerely Just Felt This Was The PERFECT Jam For The Moment, My Peeps.

I’ve Been Listening To So Many Quality Jams This Morning…

…But This One…

SULTANS OF SWING

by DIRE STRAITS

…Simply Pushed Itself To The Front Of The Line And Shouted…

"ME ME ME, PICK ME!!!"

And So I Did!!!

SULTANS OF SWING

…Honestly…

…Is The Finest Work From DIRE STRAITS.

Period.

MONEY FOR NOTHING

&

WALK OF LIFE

…Do Run A Close 2ND And 3RD Place, Fo SHO, But It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This One.

I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of DIRE STRAITS My Whole Life, As My Father Simply Loved Them AND He Made Sure I Was Able To Listen To Whatever Music I So Chose.

When In That Situation, You Go With What You Know.

And I Know My Father Has AMAZING Taste In Music.

He Always Has.

He Went To All The Best Concerts.

He Had All The Best Albums.

And He Made Damn Sure I Was Able To Listen To An Amazing Amount Of Quality Jams, Regardless Of Who Was Playing, Or When It Was From.

So DIRE STRAITS Made A Huge Impact On My Young Life.

We Even Had DIRE STRAITS On LASER-DISC!!!

Yeah.

I Know.

I’m Showing My Age A Little.

But That’s Okie The Dokie, Ya Know, Pokey?

SURE YOU DO!!!

SO…

…Here’s Hoping A Little DIRE STRAITS Can Perk-Up Your FRIDAY!!!

Like I Said…

…They’ve Got A Bundle Of Great Tunes…

…But There’s None Better Than…

SULTANS OF SWING

NO DOUBT And FO SHO!!!

  1. Dire Straits is one of my favorite bands. They are especially good on the 6th or 7th night of graveyard shift, in the quiet of the night.

    • I Can Agree With That, Sir. I Used To Jam To Them While Aboard Ship, Along With Many Other Quality Bands. Music Has The Power To Carry Us Through, Especially On Those Nights When All We Wanna Do Is Go Home And Go To Bed. hehehe

  2. I’ll pretty much listen to anything by Dire Straits. My favorite albums by them are “Love Over Gold,” and “Making Movies.” But anything up through “Brothers in Arms” is great. Also loved Knopfler’s solo album soundtrack for the movie “Local Hero.”
