I'd just like to know why 460 people have disliked this song, people don't know good music any more, and that's coming from a teenager.

Only reason for dislike is to hear that awesome sound that plays when you click it.

Even though I really like this song (its great music in my opinion), you cant judge people on either being born in a complete different era or just not enjoying this genre

A parte che sono i mitici Dire Straits, ma questa canzone vale la pena di sentirla solo per l'assolo di chitarra!

Bellissimo caricamento. Per chi non conoscesse il significato della canzone, "Sultans of Swing" è il nome di una band di jazzisti amatoriali, che con enorme tecnica e abnegazione per la musica (he knows all the chords), suonano canzoni non curandosi del fatto che con la loro arte potrebbero diventare realmente benestanti. Ma suonano per il puro piacere di suonare (Harry doesn't mind to make the scenes, appunto che ad Harry non interessa di calcare platee), visto che già ognuno di loro ha un lavoro che gli permette di tirare avanti. C'è anche il riferimento ad un vero jazzista, "Guitar George", ovvero George Borowski: lo stesso Mark Knopfler, frontman e chitarrista dei Dire Straits, proviene dai suoi stessi ambienti blues e jazz e ha voluto onorarlo con un tributo. L'assolo finale è un concentrato di ritmi, accordi e assoli jazz, amalgamati strategicamente alla fine in stile rock per completare un brano che ha molto di jazz, sebbene sia una fusione con il rock. Io lo considero uno dei migliori brani della storia del rock, visto che sebbene non siano velocissimi, gli assoli sono estremamente precisi e abbelliti da tecnicismi in fingerpicking di alto livello. Buon ascolto.

It takes a while before the Title Drop... By the way what does "Trumpet playing Band" mean?  
Report spam or abuse
A band with trumpet player(s), obviously.  SOS "play creole", so they have trumpets.  Like eso https://creolenycblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/jbb_no.jpg

The Sultans Of Swing is one of my two all time favourite songs. The other song I list as my favourite is Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen. I realise there are many other fantastic songs. You have done a great job with the lyrics, Andy.

How can somebody dislike this song? Are you people crazy??
Report spam or abuse
Just because a person doesn't like the same music as you, it does not mean they are crazy or stupid. I assume you like Schoenberg? If not then you are obviously an idiot. You get my point? Stop being so arrogant man.

First released the year you were born 1978 : ) The 70, 80 & 90s music were the best music of the existence of humans!!!! Just my humble opinion!
Report spam or abuse
My humble opinion thinks the 50's, 60's, and 70's were the best music ever, as the origins of most genres and setting the stage for the 80's-present. (:
