this song is about unappreciated music; it actually has a lot of meaning in response to rock n roll's current state...

The lyrics may not be right, but nobody's perfect. Shows you're a human! Just like texting, some of the words can come out wrong, but I can figure out what you meant to say and reply back. The song is one of the best of all time.

. . .491 dislikes? are you kidding me? most radio stations omit an entire verse of 'money for nothing' simply because it contains the word 'faggot'. and yet, they play 'brown sugar' in its entirety, day after day, station after station regardless of its racially inflammatory lyrics. 'but it's really about heroin michael. . .' right. like that matters to someone with african american ancestry'. 491 statements of hypocrisy. they should make a movie about it and put it right up there with the 300. . .

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.

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.

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. (:
