Song Of The Day – “So Far Away” by Dire Straits

18 Jul

And for today’s morsel of music we have “So Far Away”. Dire Straits is one of my favorite bands from the late 1970s-1980s period, largely because of Mark Knopfler’s killer guitar work and lyrics. I always appreciate lyricists who have a wry style, and seem to be making fun of the listener and themselves at once. I love this live version with the extended solo.  Also note Knopfler’s totally bad ass head band and the absolutely tasteless hair-gel jobs of the other band members. Oh 80s…
