And since I'm on a roll, everybody has heard lots of versions of Sultans of Swing. I happen to believe this one is right up there with the best I've seen, homeland bias notwithstanding.

Aarrgghhh! Somebody help me, I'm suddenly re-addicted to YouTube!

As it happens I loved this song anyway, but if any straight male can watch it without being distracted by AL's mouth and other possible uses for same he is kidding himself. Sorry for the descent into the gutter, but sometimes sex just oozes

And does she know it? You bet!

Know what you mean Binos, Youtube is a dangerous thing.
Looked up your Sultans of Swing, ended up with...
YouTube - Every Single Sopranos Death Updated To Include Season Finale.

Go to look up one thing, just one thing.
Walk away three days later with muscle wastage and scurvy.

City of Flight, also mentioned on a previous thread and one which you should remember at your age is one of the best songs of 1977. A one hit wonder but a great song.

This time edited after checking foss's link. I enjoyed the Sopranos. I lasted three and a half minutes of the link and found it totally offensive. I'm sure Earl would enjoy it though.

The end is nigh! Binoculars and I agree on something!

For live performances, this is one of the best.

As should be obvious from my entries in this thread, I am a big Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler fan. Besides a phenomenol guitarist/musician, he writes so well.

My favorite two songs of all time are Sultans of Swing and Romeo and Juliet.

Saw Knopfler in concert this past July. He is still amazing. Thank God he's lost the headband though (along with the need for it....)


Me, too.

Woke up feeling particularly chirpy today and for some reason I thought of this!

You gotta love the eighties when a drummers worth was measured in the number of Bass drums they had on stage!

One begs to differ,one still prefers the original version of Sultans of Swing,one recalls sitting one night moons ago reading with the Old Grey Whistle test on in the background,heard the opening bars of Sultans and it made me look up and listen,summat that music seldom made me do at that time,and one thunk Boy! this chap int no three chord wonder.
Twas Dire Straits first TV appearance.

I spent four months (really) learning Sultans of Swing when I were starting out on the strat. I learnt it note for note, one bar at a time from start to finish. By the time I'd nailed it, I'd learnt all about scales, scale linking, double stops, bends, holds & hammer on's & pull offs and how to play without a pick. All from one song.

Bins, my dad requested she moves through the fair be played at his funeral. Fills me up that song does.

That'd be this version Drapes;

time to stop the introspective stuff and try this best live band (bar Pink Floyd) I ever had the pleasure of seeing.
