    *Lyrics*

    You get a shiver in the dark,
    It's a raining in the park but meantime-
    South of the river you stop and you hold everything
    A band is blowing Dixie, double four time
    You feel alright when you hear the music ring
    Well now you step inside but you don't see too many faces
    Coming in out of the rain they hear the jazz go down
    Competition in other places
    Uh but the horns they blowin' that sound
    Way on downsouth
    Way on downsouth
    London town
    Check out guitar george, he knows-all the chords
    Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make them cry or sing
    They said an old guitar is all, he can afford

    When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

    And Harry doesn't mind, if he doesn't, make the scene
    He's got a daytime job, he's doing alright
    He can play the honky tonk like anything
    Savin' it up, for Friday night
    With the Sultans
    We're the Sultans of Swing
    Then a crowd a young boys they're a foolin' around in the corner
    Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
    They don't give a damn about any trumpet playin' band
    It ain't what they call rock and roll
    Then the Sultans
    Yeah the Sultans they play creole, creole

    And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
    And says at last just as the time bell rings
    Goodnight, now it's time to go home
    And he makes it fast with one more thing

    We are the Sultans
    We are the Sultans of Swing

    And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises?

    Dire Straits ~ Sultans of Swing

    5:44

    Album: Dire Straits
    Released: 7 October 1978
    Recorded: 13 February – 5 March 1978
    Studio: Basing Street Studios, London


    Mark Knopfler – vocals, lead and rhythm guitars
    David Knopfler – rhythm guitar, vocals
    John Illsley – bass, vocals
    Pick Withers – drums

    Sultans of Swing is a song by British rock band Dire Straits from their eponymous debut album, which band frontman Mark Knopfler wrote and composed. Although it was first released in 1978, it was its 1979 re-release that caused it to become a hit in both the UK and U.S.

    The song was recorded at Pathway Studios, North London, in July 1977 and quickly acquired a following after it was put on rotation at Radio London. Its popularity soon reached record executives, and Dire Straits were offered a contract with Phonogram Records. The song was then re-recorded in February 1978 at Basing Street Studios for the band's debut album. The record company wanted a less-polished rock sound for the radio, so an alternative version was recorded at Pathway Studios in April 1978 and released as the single in some countries including the United Kingdom and Germany.
    The music for Sultans of Swing was composed by Mark Knopfler on a National Steel guitar in an open tuning, though Knopfler did not think very highly of it at first. As he remembered, I thought it was dull, but as soon as I bought my first Strat in 1977, the whole thing changed, though the lyrics remained the same. It just came alive as soon as I played it on that ’61 Strat which remained my main guitar for many years and was basically the only thing I played on the first album and the new chord changes just presented themselves and fell into place.

    Inspiration for the song came from witnessing a jazz band playing in the corner of a practically deserted pub in Deptford, South London. At the end of their performance, the lead singer announced that they were the Sultans of Swing, and Knopfler found the contrast between the group's dowdy appearance and surroundings and their grandiose name amusing.

    Folk singer and Columbia recording artist Bill Wilson (1947–1993) made the unsubstantiated claim that he had helped write some of the lyrics to the song while he and Knopfler were both studio musicians working a session in Nashville. Wilson did not get a songwriting credit on the release, but claimed to have received some monetary compensation for his input.

    According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com by Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the song is set in the time signature of common time, with a tempo of 149 beats per minute. It is composed in the key of D minor with Knopfler's vocal range spanning from G2 to D4. The song has a basic sequence of Dm–C–B♭–A as its chord progression for the verses, and F–C–B♭ for the choruses. The song's riff makes use of triads, particularly second inversions. The song is in the andalusian cadence or diatonic phrygian tetrachord. All of the chords are compatible with a D natural minor scale, except for the A major triad, which suggests a D harmonic minor scale. Knopfler would later use similar triads on Lady Writer.

    Dire Straits - Down To The Waterline -- HQ Audio -- LYRICS

    4:03

    Dire Straits – Down To The Waterline

    Sweet surrender on the quayside
    You remember we used to run and hide
    In the shadow of the cargoes I take you one time
    And we're counting all the numbers down to the waterline

    Near misses on the dog leap stairways
    French kisses in the darkened doorways
    A foghorn blowing out wild and cold
    A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder

    Up comes a coaster fast and silent in the night
    Over my shoulder all you can see are the pilot lights
    No money in our jackets and our jeans are torn
    Your hands are cold but your lips are warm

    She can see him on the jetty where they used to go
    She can feel him in the places where the sailors go
    When she's walking by the river and the railway line
    She can still hear him whisper
    Let's go down to the waterline

    The very best recording from 1980, the sound is AMAZING! From first generation reel! Much better than you'll expect from a old tape. I'd say it's as good as the second Wiesbaden 81 show, at least. Great complete show with cool versions of Single handed sailor and In the gallery. Also a nice uptempo version from Portobello belle. Very powerful show, and Mark tells the story about Les Boys. He even talks a bit with German accent, very funny :-) Les Boys does also include the Lili Marlene intro. Great new arrangements on the older songs, and very nice to have Romeo and Juliet from this era in stunning sound quality. Expresso love has a bit unusual outro, too.

    Dire Straits - Romeo & Juliet
    Dire Straits - Romeo & Juliet
    Dire Straits - Romeo & Juliet







    A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
    Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
    Finds a streetlight steps out of the shade
    Says something like you and me babe how about it?


    Juliet says hey it's Romeo, you nearly gimme me a heart attack
    He's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back
    You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that
    Anyway what you gonna do about it?


    Juliet the dice were loaded from the start
    And I bet and you exploded in my heart
    And I forget I forget the movie song
    When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?


    Come up on different streets they both were streets of shame
    Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
    And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real
    How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?


    When you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
    You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
    You promised me everything you promised me thick and thin yeah
    Now you just say oh Romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him


    Juliet when we made love you used to cry
    You said I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die
    And there's a place for us, you know the movie song
    When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?


    I can't do the talk like they talk on tv
    And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be
    I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
    I can't do anything except be in love with you


    And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
    All I do is keep the beat, the bad company
    And all I do is kiss you through the bars of Orion
    Juliet I'd do the stars with you any time


    Juliet when we made love you used to cry
    You said I love you like the stars above and I'll love you till I die
    There's a place for us you know the movie song
    When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?


    A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
    Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
    Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
    Says something like you and me babe how about it?

    You and me babe, how about it?

    Dire Straits if you dont know this band ull pretty much like this song cya =D

    Q. This isn't HD bro what were you thinking misleading?!!
    A. I know 240p isn't what you call HD but this music video was made in 1985 they didn't have high resolutions back then its probably the best we can get for this.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~LYRICS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
    Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
    Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
    Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
    He got the action, he got the motion
    Oh Yeah the boy can play
    Dedication devotion
    Turning all the night time into the day

    He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
    He do the song about the knife
    He do the walk, he do the walk of life, yeah he do the walk of life

    Here comes Johnny and he'll tell you the story
    Hand me down my walkin' shoes
    Here comes Johnny with the power and the glory
    Backbeat the talkin' blues
    He got the action, he got the motion
    Oh Yeah the boy can play
    Dedication devotion
    Turning all the night time into the day

    He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
    He do the song about the knife
    He do the walk, he do the walk of life, yeah he do the walk of life

    Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
    Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
    Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
    Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
    He got the action, he got the motion
    Oh Yeah the boy can play
    Dedication devotion
    Turning all the night time into the day

    And after all the violence and double talk
    There's just a song in all the trouble and the strife
    You do the walk, you do the walk of life, yeah he do the walk of life

    Dire Straits - On Every Street, On Every Street (1991)

    Lyrics:

    There's gotta be a record of you some place
    You gotta be on somebodys books
    The lowdown, a picture of your face
    Your injured looks

    The sacred and profane
    The pleasure and the pain
    Somewhere your fingerprints remain concrete

    And it's your face, I'm looking for
    On every street

    A ladykiller, regulation tattoo
    Silver spurs on his heels
    Says, what can I tell you as I'm standing next to you
    She threw herself under my wheels

    Oh it's a dangerous road
    And a hazardous load
    And the fireworks over liberty explode in the heat

    And it's your face I'm looking for on every street

    A three-chord symphony crashes into space
    The moon is hanging upside down
    I don't know why it is I'm still on the case
    It's a ravenous town

    And you still refuse to be traced
    Seems to me such a waste
    And every victory has a taste that's bittersweet

    And it's your face I'm looking for on every street

    And it's your face I'm looking for on every street

    Lyrics:
    Romeo & Juliet

    A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
    Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
    Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
    Says something like you and me babe how about it?

    Juliet says hey it's Romeo you nearly gimme me a heart attack
    He's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back
    You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that
    Anyway what you gonna do about it?

    Juliet the dice were loaded from the start
    And I bet and you exploded in my heart
    And I forget I forget the movie song
    When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

    Come up on different streets they booth were streets of shame
    Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
    And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real
    How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

    When you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
    You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
    You promised med everything you promised me thick and thin
    Now you just say oh Romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him

    Juliet when we made love you used to cry
    You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
    There's a place for us you know the movie song
    When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

    I can't do the talk like they talk on tv
    And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be
    I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
    I can't do anything except be in love with you

    And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
    All I do is keep the beat and bad company
    All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
    Julie I'd do the stars with you any time

    Juliet when we made love you used to cry
    You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die
    There's a place for us you know the movie song
    When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

    A lovestruck Romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
    Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
    Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
    Says something like you and me babe how about it?

    One of the best audience recordings from Love over gold tour 1982-1983! Great versions, recorded one month before the famous Alchemy recording. Superb version of Portobello belle which lasts for over 15 minutes! Excellent recording, a must for all fans.

    Comments from LETSGO:
    First upload ever from my master cassettes. Recorded from center balcony 1st row with TCD5 M and Beyer dynamic M 201 N mics. I was above the crowd, no chat around. Cable mic problems made most of the show was recorded on one channel only. 01, 02, 03, 15 and 16 only are stereo, the rest is on two mono channels. Ticket scan added. Sony UCX cassettes played on a Marrantz SD4051 deck with pitch adjustment; zoom H4 for wave files; PC.
