Man, I love me some Dire Straits. Mark Knopfler is one hell of a guitarist, and they have some great tunes. Walk of Life was released in 1985 from the Brothers in Arms album (one of the best albums around, IMO) and it’s one of my favorites from the album. Now this has everything to do with the music video, but this song makes me think of baseball every time I hear it. The video has a lot of sports bloopers, but I can just hear this in my head pumping over the loud speaker at a ballpark. Bonus trivia for ya: my cousin is in this video at the 1:42 mark. He’s the White Sox player falling and somersaulting backwards. Good times!
The Grammys were last night, and today’s best in music were celebrated for all of their accomplishments… so of course, I didn’t watch a second of it. I don’t know who the majority of the artists are, and the ones I do know, I really don’t like their music. But our guy Willie apparently won a Grammy for an album he did. Good for him. I’d rather hear him anytime given the choice.
