Song of the Day: Classic Dire Straits
I heard “Sultans of Swing” when it first came out in the late 1970s, but tuned out for another ten years or so.
Since then, I’ve been a big Mark Knopfler fan, as my recent thumbs-up shows in his face-up with (thumbs-down) Dylan. (Fans of the Bobster were not happy with me for that post, which said the septuagenarian former hipster danced as though on a walker.)
Here’s a classic mid-1980s cut. It’s long, but you can bring it up on YouTube and use it as background music.
