Money for nothing and your chicks for free
August 2, 2006
Seeing Lig's piece on MTV reminded me of the Dire Straits track, `Money for Nothing.' Not Straits greatest work (for that, go to `Making Movies' or even the first album, `Dire Straits' with the brilliant `Sultans of Swing' and `Down to the Waterline' -- though Knopfler's latest album, with Emmylou Harris is also well worth a purchase). But `Money for Nothing' was interesting, and it had one of the greatest, chunkiest guitar openings in rock history -- approaching `Gimme Shelter' by the Stones.
