Dire Straits has been a group I’ve liked since they released “Sultans of Swing.” I don’t like everything they do, but then I don’t like all of any group.
This is “Expresso Love” by Dire Straits from their 1980 album Making Movies. This is an odd song, because it was released as a single in 1992 (it was Side B).
This song was everywhere when it first came out. And I still love it. The bass line, the rhythm guitar, and the clean guitar solos all work together.
This is “Sultans of Swing” by Dire Straits from their 1978 album Dire Straits. This song catapulted them to stardom. (YouTube. Browser privacy extensions. “Unavailable.” Use the link.)
