This is a discussion on The You Tube music video of the moment thread within the Off-Topic forums, part of the Apple Forums category; These are just two of those songs most people of a 'certain age' will have in their collection...
Rediscovering Dire Straits at the moment...am I showing my age or what? They were much maligned later on in their career, but they were absolutely huge during the mid 80s. The following clips are a reminder of what they were capable of.
Brothers in Arms. A lovely mellow track.
Sultans of Swing Live. Awesome guitar work!! Not so sure about the sweat bands though....so 80s!!
Fade to Black. Mark Knopfler is a superb Blues guitarist in my opinion. Not an official video, but kinda cool.
Money for Nothing. The track and video that gave them real main stream success.
You can't spend thirteen odd years living in Scotland without soaking-up and growing to love some of the local culture and music. Check out Shooglenifty if you like Celtic music...a wonderful blend of the traditional Gaelic folk sound, mixed with a modern stomping beat...wonderful!!!
