5 On Friday - Mark Knopfler



Trav at Trav's Thoughts has a Five on Friday meme on his blog where you pick five songs to share with your friends. You can choose a theme or just pick random songs. Create a playlist at Playlist.com or use any type of media.

This week I'm featuring Mark Knopfler.  He is not only a great guitarist who can play any genre from the rock of Dire Straits to the country duets with Emmy Lou Harris, but a great songwriter of sensitive and interesting lyrics.  Here is just a small sample.



Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

I've always enjoyed Mark's music as part of Dire Straits but you're right, he's so much more than just that band and quite the performer. Oh to have one-sixteenth of his talent but alas, the only thing I can play is the radio it seems!

I am a rock and an island over on my Five on Friday this week!

LOVE Mark Knopfler. My husband had the Cal soundtrack once upon a time, and Local Hero is one of our favorite films.

Enjoyed the Chet Atkins jam. My family had a Chet Atkins Christmas album when I was growing up, and I adore his sound.
