5 on Friday - Set 111

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

As I work hard on the pre-production for my Scorpius book cover / book trailer shoot coming up next month, my thoughts went to Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms. Which led me to this week's set.

1 - Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

2 - Wild Theme / Local Hero soundtrack - Mark Knopfler

3 - The Road / Cal soundtrack - Mark Knopfler

4 - Storybook Love / The Princess Bride soundtrack - Mark Knopfler featuring Willy DeVille

5 - Money for Nothing Dire Straits featuring Sting

Great choices for this week - especially the last two in your set as I totally love "The Princess Bride" and "Money for Nothing" always takes me back to life in the 80's when MTV actually still played music videos!

I have to say I enjoyed Money for Nothing the best.

You should know that I lust after Mark Knopfler. Do you have the Real Live Road Running album with Emmy Lou Harris? You could drown in the lyrics.

As I travelled wired to my Walkman in the early 80's, I carried around a dozen tapes. After a number of years, I eventually pared it down to just one tape, A side - Love Over Gold, B side - Brothers In Arms. I listened to that one tape for at least five years.

Is it me, or does it seem like Mark Knopfler is somewhat under celebrated as an artist? His talents are so diverse.

Of course, when thinking of genius guitar work, I had to include Mark Knopfler. I love that our sets overlapped. Hadn't heard "Brothers in Arms" in AGES! Have a great week!
