I know the way...I can see by the moonlight clear as the day

“Follow Me Home” was released on the Dire Straits’ sophomore album, Communiqué, in the summer of 1979. This is my favorite Dire Straits album and the second I’ve done for a track from it (the first being one of my very first videos, (and somehow still by far my most popular one)….”Once Upon A Time In The West”….the vid is too clunky for me to bear now, but the song is as classic and timeless as ever…gotta get around to a reboot on that vid someday!) This song has always been another favorite from the album, I just really love the smooth tropical-like groove that the band finds and stays in for the track….Knopfler’s guitar is as stylishly stunning as always, and Pick Withers’s restrained style, favoring spare snare drum and hi-hat combinations sound are perfect for the track. 236 more words

Night owl chat - Dire Straits

Full disclosure: My brother loved Dire Straits, and tried to get me into them. I never could, until recently. Maybe it’s being middle aged, but their melancholia now appeals to me. 33 more words

Here’s one that you might not have heard in awhile.

This is my favorite of all the Turntable Tuesday songs I picked for today, mainly because I remember this song and music video so vividly! 61 more words
