  2. And it's already 40 years since Dire Straits were in the charts with that little number, though the story is timeless.

  4. Great guitar and very modern take on the old love story. Smiled at "you and me babe" and "my boyfriend's back" lyrics.

  6. Tears and gratitude are welling up. It's been some time since I heard this song. It moved me when I listened to it over and over again in the early 1990s, and it moves me even more deeply to hear it in Mark Knopfler's mature voice.

    Here is the version I heard in the early 1990s:
