Song of the day: Dire Straits- Money For Nothing
In 1985, the Dire Straits released the album Brothers In Arms, which would be a big hit album. The song is about a working class man, who comments on music videos. The intro is sung by Sting, who also was a co-writer. Mark Knopfler wanted to imitate the guitar playing of ZZ Top in the song, and though the guitarist of ZZ Top did not tell Knopfler a thing about it, he has said that Knopfler did do a very good job. The video of the song was the first to be aired on MTV Europe… In the US it was number 1, in the UK number 4. Enjoy
