Love Dire Straits in their twilight,
This review is from: On Every Street (Audio CD)
On Every Street" itself is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, bittersweet and filled with unrequited longing, and illustrates Mark Knopfler's desire to convey "the essential loneliness of a lot of life experience".
"You and Your Friend" is truly erotic! You can feel a slow and sensual buildup that becomes almost unbearable with the bass turned high. Crank this one up with a special lady friend on a chill winter evening with the fireplace roaring, all you gentlemen out there, and let the fun begin!
While the more recognizable hits on this album are "Heavy Fuel" and "Calling Elvis", which are quite good, these other songs would be my faves, along with the ironic "My Parties", the hilariously satirical "Ticket to Heaven", and the mini-jazz riff "Fade to Black".
To listen to this album is to love Dire Straits in their twilight, the end of a beautiful era...
