Throwback: Happy (Belated) 73rd Birthday, Mark Knopfler!

So as it turns out, yesterday was Mark Knopfler‘s 73rd birthday. Now, if you’re a child of the 80s like me, you might remember that Dire StraitsBrothers in Arms featured one of the most technologically advanced, forward-thinking and oft-played video of its time — “Money for Nothing.”

But besides that song, it’s arguably one of the better albums of its day. “So Far Away” from me is a great, under-appreciated song in my book.

Let’s wish Mark Knopfler, a very happy birthday. May there be many many more.
