Viiekas!

One of the all-time timeless classics.... One you hear "I want my MTV' you know it's Money For Nothing & your chicks for free!
Peaking at #4 in Australia, 1985.

I'm cynical enough to believe they knew the MTV line would guarantee high world wide sales especially with the accompanying video. On its own the song is not as great as some of their earlier hits.
***
good to hear in your car with other their songs, but for me no much soul inside, their song are little bit cold
******
So great to listen to, it's really catchy!
*****
Ever so cool track, one of my favourites from them.

Actually this is fantastic, really great song to get you amped up! Althought it's quite long it's amazing how quick it goes past, it doesn't seem to drag on like other songs that are this length. Not my favourite from them, but definitely up there.

Cool track.

Simply their best track! Unique and recognisable. Builds you up at the intro, fun lyrics and those guitars and keyboards feature strongly again.
*****
Great groove. Great guitars.

Possibly my favourite song from Dire Straits at the most. Such an instant classic!!!

Love the intro and that opening guitar riff. The video is amazing also. UK#4 and Ireland#6. US#1.
