Lady Writer

I'm been listening to old Dire Straits tunes in the car, especially Lady Writer. Don't know why I like that one so much. It's not their most popular. It doesn't have the best lyrics or melody. But something appeals to me. Maybe it's that distinctively melancholy Mark Knopfler feel to the song or the nod to Bob Dylan when he drawls, "Plus your mother was a jaaaazz sing-ah." Maybe it's the guitar solos. (I'll bet Todd never thought I'd say this.) Anyhow, here are my top 5 Dire Straits songs:
  • Lady Writer
  • Your Latest Trick
  • Tunnel of Love
  • Why Worry
  • Romeo and Juliet
