    I thought it was time to upload this in better quality.

    Mark Knopfler performing a great version of Money for Nothing during Music for Montserrat, live from Royal Albert Hall, London - 15 September 1997.

    On the evening of September 15, 1997, legendary British music producer George Martin (who had risen to prominence with the Beatles) held a benefit concert at London's Royal Albert Hall for the small Caribbean island of Montserrat, which had recently been devastated by a volcanic eruption. All of the invited superstars had recorded some of their biggest hits at Montserrat's Air Studios, which Martin had founded in 1970, and this shared history gives Music for Montserrat an added sense of enjoyment among friends. Despite a few vocal dropouts and forgivable mixing problems, this outstanding concert has been captured with impressive fidelity, and while each artist performs songs appropriate to the occasion, they share the stage (along with a house band, choir, and orchestra conducted by Martin) in brilliant combinations that bring out the best in everyone involved.

    The show hits full stride with Mark Knopfler's exquisite Brothers in Arms, which segues nicely into Money for Nothing with guest vocals by Sting, who then performs two hits from his Police years. And while Elton John and Eric Clapton form the centerpiece of the concert (especially Clapton and Knopfler's acoustic Layla), by which time Music for Montserrat had given its royal audience a show they would never forget.

    Enjoy!

    *Lyrics*

    (I want my MTV)

    Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
    You play the guitar on the M.T.V.
    That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
    Money for nothin' and your chicks for free.

    Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
    Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
    Maybe get a blister on your little finger
    Maybe get a blister on your thumb.

    We gotta install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
    We gotta move these refrigerators we gotta move these color T.V.'s.

    The little faggot with the earring and the makeup
    Yeah buddy that's his own hair
    That little faggot got his own jet airplane
    That little faggot, he's a millionaire

    We gotta install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
    We gotta move these refrigerators we gotta move these color T.V.'s.

    I shoulda learned to play the guitar
    I shoulda learned to play them drums
    Look at that mama she got it stickin' in the camera
    Man we could have some fun

    And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises?
    You bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
    Oh that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
    Get your money for nothin' get your chicks for free.

    We gotta install microwave ovens custom kitchen deliveries
    We gotta move these refrigerators we gotta move these color T.V.'s.

    Listen here
    Now that ain't workin' that's the way to do it
    You play the guitar on the M.T.V.
    That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
    Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
    Money for nothin' and the chicks for free
    (Get your) Money for nothin' and chicks for free
    Money for nothin' and the chicks for free (I want my, I want my MTV)
    Money for nothin' and the chicks for free

    I cite my sources and they may differ than other people's accounts, so I don't guarantee the actual accuracy of my videos.

    Released as part of Dire Straits fifth album, Brothers in Arms, the single Money for Nothing would prove to be the British band’s biggest song of their career, but it also garnered an enormous amount of controversy. One country went as far as to ban the song from public airwaves resulting in a backlash from some radio stations Let’s explore what happened in today’s video.
    The single money for nothing was a massive hit for Dire Straits topping the top 40 charts in several countries including America. .In addition to that it won an MTV VMA for video of the year in 1986 in addition to receiving 11 nominations and took home a grammy award for best rock performance by a duo or group.
    Dire Straits vocalist and guitarist Mark Knopfler would cite ZZ Top as one of the main influences on the song as the band was a huge staple on MTV during the mid 80’s. The song’s origin came to Knopfler during a visit he made to a department store in New York City. An employee dressed in work boots, a baseball cap and checkered shirt walked up to Knopfler as he watched MTV and said the following , what are those, Hawaiian noises?...that ain't workin', etc. The exchange gave Knopfler an idea for a song and he soon started started writing lyrics using pieces of the actual conversation he had with the stranger. The song would be written from the perspective of the store employee he met that day. Sting would also sing background vocals on the song and be credited as a co-writer on the song with Knopfler. Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx would claim years later that the song was about his band's lifestyle and that it was a motley crue video playing in the department store the day Knopfler became inspired to write the song.
    While the song was a massive hit for the band it also drew controversy for being labelled homophobic for it’s use of the f word in the lyrics. Knopfler would tell Bill Flanagan in 1984 I wanted to use a lot of the language that the real guy actually used when I heard him, because it was more real…
    Rolling stone Magazine brought up the controversy in 1985 with, Knopflerrevealing “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London – he actually said it was below the belt. Apart from the fact that there are stupid gay people as well as stupid other people, it suggests that maybe you can’t let it have so many meanings – you have to be direct. In fact, I’m still in two minds as to whether it’s a good idea to write songs that aren’t in the first person, to take on other characters. The singer in “Money for Nothing” is a real ignoramus, hard hat mentality – somebody who sees everything in financial terms. I mean, this guy has a grudging respect for rock stars. He sees it in terms of, well, that’s not working and yet the guy’s rich: that’s a good scam. He isn’t sneering.”
    While the video was a massive success on MTV winning video of the year in 1986 at the VMA’s. Mark Knopfler wasn’t a fan of doing videos and al ot of the bands videos up until this point in time saw the band playing the song live. in the book i want my MTV director Steve Barron was asked by the band’s record label to convince Knopfler to shoot a different type of video. recalled meeting the band on tour in Europe in an effort to convince the band to do a new type of video saying “i really wanted to use a new computer technology called Paintbox, which was used to do colorization in commercials and to create logos for corporations” Barron would take Knopfller and his girlfriend to dinner and broach the subject and as Knopfler telling him how MTV needs to be shook up and while Knopfler was about to say no his girlfriend interjected and said “wow you’re so right about that, that’s exactly what mtv needs.”
    In January of 2011 it was announced by the Canadian broadcast standards council that Money for Nothing was too offensive to be played on the canadian airwaves singling out the line “that little f word” in the second verse. The Canadian broadcast standards intervened after a resident of St. Johns Newfoundland complained about the song. The ruling would not ban the song on candian airwaves — as radio stations could play an edited version of the song.
    However not all the radio stations agreed with the ruling with some Canadian rock stations including in Edmonton (no surprise)

    Money For Nothing
    Band: Dire Straits
    Alum: Brothers In Arms
    Released: 1985

    One of the most successful Dire Straits singles, “Money for Nothing” is inspired by Mark Knopfler listening to a man complaining about the musicians that emerged in the 1980s.
    The song features an introduction with Sting singing “I want my MTV”. Because of this, this was the first song played on MTV Europe when it began airing. Sting received a songwriting credit for the intro, and consequently this is one of only three Dire Straits songs not credited to Mark Knopfler alone.

    The music video for the song was one of the first examples of CGI human characters. It won Video of the Year at the 1986 MTV Video Awards, one of the few prizes it managed to take from a-ha’s “Take on Me”, by the same director !!

    Video containing the famous concert from Wembley 1985. Great show of the Brothers in arms tour, containing powerful versions. Nice to see the two guestplayers Nils Lofgren and Hank B. Marvin. Picture and sound quality are both very good. The picture is taken from probably one of the best preserved VHS tapes available and the sound is taken from the best sounding audio soundboard bootleg (Perfect Investigations), except for the songs Tunnel of Love, Solid rock and Going Home but which still have good sound.

  • Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

    8:28

    Released May 13, 1985 on Brothers In Arms

    September, 21, 1985— With the help of heavy MTV exposure 'Money For Nothing' gave Dire Straits their first US No.1 single.

    The song's lyrics, considered controversial at the time of the song's release, are written from the point of view of a working-class man watching music videos and commenting on what he sees. The song featured a cameo appearance by Sting singing background vocals, as well as the signature falsetto introduction and backing chorus, I want my MTV. The groundbreaking video was the first to be aired on MTV Europe when the network launched on 1 August 1987.

    Mark Knopfler described the writing of the song in a 1984 interview with critic Bill Flanagan:

    The lead character in Money for Nothing is a guy who works in the hardware department in a television/custom kitchen/refrigerator/microwave appliance store. He's singing the song. I wrote the song when I was actually in the store. I borrowed a bit of paper and started to write the song down in the store. I wanted to use a lot of the language that the real guy actually used when I heard him, because it was more real....

    Money for Nothing won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a 'Duo or Group with Vocal' in 1986 at the 28th Annual Grammy Awards and the video won 'Video of the Year' at the 3rd MTV Video Music Awards.

    Originally, Mark Knopfler was not at all enthusiastic about the concept of the music video. MTV, however, was insistent on it.

    Director Steve Barron, of Rushes Postproduction in London, was contacted by Warner Bros. to persuade Knopfler to relent. Describing the contrasting attitudes of Knopfler and MTV, he said:

    The problem was that Mark Knopfler was very anti-videos. All he wanted to do was perform, and he thought that videos would destroy the purity of songwriters and performers.
    They said, Can you convince him that this is the right thing to do, because we've played this song to MTV and they think it's fantastic but they won't play it if it's him standing there playing guitar. They need a concept.

    Barron then flew to Budapest to convince Knopfler of their concept. Meeting after a gig, Knopfler was reportedly still unimpressed, but this time his girlfriend was present and offered a hand. According to Barron:

    Luckily, his girlfriend said, He's absolutely right. There aren't enough interesting videos on MTV, and that sounds like a brilliant idea. Mark didn't say anything but he didn't make the call to get me out of Budapest. We just went ahead and did it.

    Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms
    Album: Brothers In Arms
    Year: 1985

    Lyrics:

    These mist covered mountains
    Are a home now for me
    But my home is the lowlands
    And always will be
    Some day youll return to
    Your valleys and your farms
    And youll no longer burn
    To be brothers in arms

    Through these fields of destruction
    Baptisms of fire
    Ive witnessed all your suffering
    As the battles raged higher
    And though they did hurt me so bad
    In the fear and alarm
    You did not desert me
    My brothers in arms

    Theres so many different worlds
    So many differents suns
    And we have just one world
    But we live in different ones

    Now the suns gone to hell
    And the moons riding high
    Let me bid you farewell
    Every man has to die
    But its written in the starlight
    And every line on your palm
    Were fools to make war
    On our brothers in arms
