Musical palate cleanser, crazy for that girl edition

I saw over the weekend that Mark Knopfler celebrated his birthday, so let’s celebrate, too, with my favorite Dire Straits song, “Expresso Love”.

That’s the E Street Band’s Roy Bittan tickling the ivories.  Great lyrics and — it almost goes without saying — great guitar work.

    Every time I hear Dire Straights I think back to the late seventies in Buckhead hanging out at various friends houses and drinking Moosehead… and doing other unmentionable things. Hard to believe it’s been almost forty years. Funny how music plays such a role in linking memories with various times in our lives. What’s sad to me is that it hasn’t been since the mid nineties that I am able to link a musical group or genre to a particular time in my life. I take that back… Jimmy Buffet has always helped me sail.

    On a side note I have really gotten into some of the old you tube clips of Glen Campbell since his passing… something I would never have admitted forty years ago.

    And Sultans of Swing has always been my favorite DS song.

      I have vivid memories of being in high school during the late 70s, hanging out on a Friday night at Pasquale’s Pizza in Americus, GA … and Sultans of Swing playing on the juke box. Alright, alright, alright!

    Thinking of a couple other groups from that genre. Little Feat and the Dixie Dreggs. Probably a good thing that Steve Morse was able to conjure up the Dreggs back then because the name would probably be too politically incorrect to use today.

    Really wish this site allowed edits. Have a nice day.

    On a totally unrelated note: Saw a banner photo of Hines Ward (in honor of there being 19 days to kickoff) on Dawgbone that reminded me why he’ll always be one of my all time favorite DGDs. Has anyone ever seen a photo of Hines playing football (or doing anything, for that matter) where he didn’t have a smile on his face? Didn’t matter if he was playing RB, QB, WR, scoring TDs or dishing out de-cleater blocks, dude gave everything he had on every play and looked like he was having the time of his life while doing so.

    All but one song off “Making Movies” is tip top. Tough to decide if Romeo & Juliet or Skateaway is my favorite.
