StuartEstell Posted February 25, 2014 Share Posted February 25, 2014 It struck me when listening back to this that I haven't really sorted out how to sing Dire Straits songs without the vocal sounding very derivative. It's his rhythms and phrasing, particularly in the unpitched lines - they're so distinctive that they almost suck you into using an embarrassing fake Geordie accent. Anyway - Romeo and Juliet from Making Movies is one of his songs which is just perfect. For many people of my generation in the 80s liking Dire Straits wasn't really "allowed". I always had a soft spot for Making Movies and Love Over Gold though. I make no great claims for this, but it's a bit of fun: https://soundcloud.com/5357311/romeo-and-juliet-dire-straits I intend to do Telegraph Road at some point Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
