#FridayFive: Dire Straits

I was twelve years old when Dire Straits made a big splash on MTV with the incredible music video for Money for Nothing. Their fifth studio album – Brothers in Arms – was their first huge hit in the US and one of the first albums I ever owned.

Here are my five favorite Dire Straits tracks:

  1. So Far Away
  2. Romeo and Juliet
  3. Money for Nothing
  4. Why Worry
  5. Walk of Life
