Dire Straits has made it onto Record Of The Day once before, and let’s be honest, they’ll probably be here again. I adore this band. Part of the reason I love them so much is because of Douglas Adams, who used Dire Straits in So Long And Thanks For All The Fish, during one of the most romantic moments between Arthur and Fenchurch. I also remember an exchange student who stayed with my family back in the 80s named Christian. He brought some Dire Straits records with him because his English teacher in Denmark had used Mark Knopfler’s lyrics as a teaching tool.
