I am probably older than most here and truth be told, there is but one song of this group that I ever heard of and at this very moment I cannot remember the title of it...

Gimme time, it will come back to me.

Ray


*eyeroll* Ray, watch it or I'll come over and smack you upside the head with my DS tapes! I know where you live! ;-)


... Would them be those 8 track kind that my dad used to tell me about? :O)

Ray runs for the hills.

I think that Dire Straits are an important part of the history of music and they deserve a challenge suggestion, so...

Yes, I know everyone's entitled to an opinion, and if people think that MK/DS wasn't prolific enough, fine and dandy. If people don't like the challenge idea, they don't have to take part. I just see no point in posting daft remarks, except to deliberately piss people off.

It's not a challenge yet, it's a suggestion you put out for discussion. I would assume that means you wanted feedback and not just people nodding and saying "yes". While his comment is a bit snarky, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) .

I tend to agree that unlike the other band/musician challenges, the list of hits is pretty small.

Well, here's a list from Private Investigations: The Best of Dire Straits & Mark Knopfler.

"Telegraph Road"
"Sultans of Swing"
"Love Over Gold"
"Romeo and Juliet"
"Tunnel of Love"
"Skateaway"
"Private Investigations"
"So Far Away"
"Money for Nothing"
"Walk of Life"
"Your Latest Trick"
"Calling Elvis"
"On Every Street"
"Going Home"
"The Long Road"
"Why Aye Man"
"Sailing to Philadelphia"
"What It Is"
"The Trawlerman's Song"
"Boom, Like That"
"Brothers in Arms"
"All the Roadrunning"

I think that's a little more than 3 hits. Then add all the other songs from the albums. Tons of material to choose from.

Sure, I have no problem with that, as his voice, lyrics and guitar playing are very distinctive and what really made DS what they were. I'm glad his subsequent solo career has worked out so well, too. Down Every Street is one tape I quickly played through - love My Parties!
