"Skateaway" is a classic Knopfler song... | Reviewer: Mark Koenig | 4/15/2007

I agree with the previous reviewer, Matt - I graduated high school when this album came out (1980's Making Movies). I was immediately transfixed by Knopfler's playful lyric and killer guitar playing/arrangement on this track the first time I heard it. It kicks ass still now in 2007 - 27 years later - God, has it been that long? I am getting old :-)

Skate on Tells it all | Reviewer: matt | 8/15/2005

Could not shake this tune from my head even after 10 years. Now that southern slide grabs your attention. Nothing like it since.
