Sultans of Swing—This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song, Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits, was released in 1979. I was in my mid-twenties, single and living on the north shore of Boston at the time. I owned a 1974 copper-orange Chevy Camaro and this was a favorite driving song.

Here is a great article on the song and the band by Paul Secton at Udiscovermusic.

Here are a couple of live performance video. The second one features Mark’s voice more as I remember it.

May be time to head out for a drive this weekend to enjoy the cool fall weather here in Tallahassee and crank up some tunes! How about you?
