Dire Straits

DireStraits

One of my favourite bands at the moment. Their music is great because of the guitar work of Mark Knopfler, the songs, and especially the live versions! My favourite is, although I have not heard all their work yet, a live version of Calling Elvis (over 10 minutes long!) Of course they can’t miss from this Hall of Fame!

Song of the day: Dire Straits- Calling Elvis

Hello everyone,

Today we’re going to call a dead person…
Or, at least, a band is going to call this person.

I’m talking about the Dire Straits, who are going to call Elvis Presley in Calling Elvis.
And there are some small sentences of Elvis in the songtext. Some examples:

Heartbreak hotel, Love me tender, Don’t be cruel, Return to sender and Treat me like a fool.

I hope you like the song, because I do!
