    @ danielharris627 -- Zappa's Camarillo Brillo has nothing to do with Sultans of Swing, especially when you consider that Zappa released the song long before Dire Straits were formed!

    Their masterpieces: 'Brothers in arms', 'Telegraph road', 'Tunnel of love'

    Well most of my ones are scrobbled as Going Home rather than Local Hero (Wild Theme) and most of them are Mark Knopfler rather than Dire Straits!

    I cannot BELIEVE that Local Hero (Wild Theme), is not in the top 20 most listened tracks!!! I was introduced to Dire Straits' music by my Father, and I'm still very grateful =) They're awesome.

    Great, but if it doesn't sound like Dire Straits we don't want the advert here. :p

    Has anyone heard Camarillo Brillo by Frank Zappa? Apparetly he got ideas from Sultans of Swing to do it! :D

    I can remember hearing Sultans of Swing when nobody had heard of Dire Straits, and thinking instantly that it was awesome. Still do.

    I started to listen to Dire Straits when i was about 12, now I'm 21 and It's still one of my favorite bands!

    Very nice band. Getting into them now... Sultans of Swing live is orgasmic. Knopfler makes the solos seem so easy lol

    I'm 19 and I probably listen to more Dire Straits & Mark Knopfler than is healthy. In fact, I'd say my lifestyle is based around a healthy diet of Knopfler riffs :p

    I'm 18, and I tried them, but I don't like them. So perhaps some young people just don't like them...

    I dislike Money for Nothing and Walk of Life, but I like Sultans of Swing and Brothers in Arms very much.

    while young people can like good old music like Dire Straits, bombadil seems right. young people these days aren't shown this stuff. i found out about Dire Straits from my dad when I was like 15.

    I'm 16, i like Dire Straits

  • bombadil25

    i agree with omeka. Big bands of the 80's are underrated because they are 20 years old!! Young people today listen to other things, that's a fact. If nobody shows them, it is hard to find such a band like dire straits, not even like..

    September 2007
  • JCFantasy23

    They chose the worst part of the song to sample Money for Nothing.

    September 2007

    Wonderful band.

    ım agree with'omeka'.my uncle made me to meet dire straits

    September 2007
  • omeka-

    Brothers in Arms (the cd) is still the second most sold foreign album in Finland. Dire Straits isn't so underrated but it is so long time ago when they got broken so it has been forgotten. Even my mum knows the band was very big thing when Brothers in Arms came out. Nowadays there aren't many ways for young people to find the band so it looks like the band is underrated. Just for dougydarkangel :P

    The way Mark playing guitar is so cool! Brothers in Arms is like an Epic...

    Basel is really good. Last week I found by Accident the DVD Autumn in Nimes. Didn't know that exists. Fantastic Versions of Telegraph Road, Sultans of Swing, Solid Rock and Private Investigations.

    August 2007
  • shef_dave

    Where abouts was that recorded? I've got a bootleg called Live in Basle which was probably recorded at that time as it has songs from On Every Street on. And it's a briliant live recording, best I've heard.
