Knopfler is amazing | Reviewer: Rick------ About the song Money For Nothing performed by Dire Straits
The lyrics of this song force knopfler to do something he does not often do, and that is to really demonstrate his ability as a guitarist. The narrator was actually some idiot Knopfler overheard in a retail store. He was apalled by the bigotry and idiocy he was spouting to coworkers who had MTV playing on several TVs. When the narrator is spouting this garbage in the song, Knopfler must play well enough to demonstrate that playing a guitar well is not at all easy; creating and arranging music requires a great deal of hard work, years of practice, and no small amount of talent. The narrator, however, like most of us, only see the finished product, but not the practice and devotion that were required to producebthe art.
I once told a musician that I thought Knopfler was underrated as a guitarist and he responded that those who play his music quickly realize just how good he really is. He produces complex musical arrangements, but plays so well one does not notice how talented he really is.
As for the insulting language in the song, it is a vital element of the art and Knopfler refutes the idiotic opinion of this gerbil by grinding a bit more on the guitar than he normally would, thereby proving the stupidity and bigotry of the man. Changing the lyrics, or editing the song is not only insulting to Knopfler, it damages the impact of the work.
I do not enjoy hearing racist, vulgar, or bigotted language, but artists must have the right to show us the failings of society and comment upon what they perceive and expose us to the ugliness of our biases, ignorances, and narrow minded thoughts. We may not appreciate the art, or the technique, but that is not a failing of the art, but of the observer. Picasso's Guernica, for example, which depicts the bombing of a town during the Spanish Civil War and which I cannot consider beautiful, comes very close to showing us the horror of the war and its costs. I would not hang it on my wall, but I have to appreciate how he developed a new technique which clearly shows his reaction to the event and reveals his intentions when you know the motivation behind its creation.
Lost Romeo | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Romeo and Juliet performed by Dire Straits
This song was suggested to me by my Romeo of many years ago. It brings so much emotion and meaning to what happened in our lives. Met on a study abroad...fell quickly in love. I had to come home to finish school and he eventually stopped calling.
Now we have new lives but the burn for what was still lies with us both...what a touching song to frame those memories.
ms | Reviewer: angela------ About the song Telegraph Road performed by Dire Straits
The most prolific + gifted musician - Mr Knopfler. Dire Straits never ages, never fails to inspire. Indeed a musical genius. One that has made music so great that it never fails to inspire.listening to that electric guitar - just mind blowing talent made look so easy. You guys rock!
I just feel the samy way | Reviewer: Jahid------ About the song Telegraph Road performed by Dire Straits
I just like others. Like Dire Streets very much love Romeo Juliet, Telegraph Road, Brothers In arms. I heard some other title from others review. Now I am going to download them and eat for the night.
Nostalgic. | Reviewer: Muhammad Israfil Sameer.------ About the song You And Your Friend performed by Dire Straits
I found this song through internet search. I have been enjoying Dire Straits song for three years. Their song You and Your friend is a very melodious, impressive song. And his voice is also enchanting. I added Dire Straits as my favourite English band in my facebook account.
offended, how about censorship | Reviewer: Jim------ About the song Money For Nothing performed by Dire Straits
This song came out in my era and when we said faggot we didn't necessarily mean homoseaxual. It was more of a way of saying jerk or a**hole. What really disapoints me is when I hear this song on the radio now that whole part is missing. I realize its not government censoring the free speech but you either believe in free speech or you don't. You can't believe in it as long as no one is offended because that defeats the whole purpose of free speech.
Amazing and unique song | Reviewer: Johnny Brit------ About the song Planet Of New Orleans performed by Dire Straits
so after listerning to the On Easy Street Album for over 10 years i found myself staying at the Hotel St Marie, which is on the Corner of Toulouse and Dauphine in Nawlins. It's an extraordinary song that comes along once in a while, and it invokes true talent and emotions. So listerning to it again while sitting here it feels like there is a presence similar to when I sat at the bus shelter roundabout at Penny Lane bus stop, in Aigburth Liverpool and listend to the Beatles.
LOVE IT! | Reviewer: Fan------ About the song Telegraph Road performed by Dire Straits
I was first introdused to this song by my dad when I was about 5 years old. Have always liked it although I didn't understand it until later in my life. It is by far my favourite song of all time. I listen to it on a regular basis and it never gets old.. It is truly a musical masterpiece!! The way it moves me and makes me feel is something I have never experienced from any other song. Lot of love to you mr. Knopfler <3
