edit: far too much bass, alas, even some distortion, oops, but, visiting my channel it’s bass what you get, sorry, it is what it is... I think this is one of the swingingest songs ever. It is the first single of the Dire Straits; a Dutch (hurray for Holland!) record company heard the first release of the song and contracted the band. The song was re-recorded and re-released in 1978. The song also was on their debut album "Dire Straits". "Sultans of Swing" was re-issued again as a single in November 1988.

Belgium: 14 - Canada: 4 - France: 36 - Germany: 20 - Ireland: 6 - Italy: 12 - The Netherlands (Dutch Top 40): 11 - New Zealand: 12 - South Africa: 3 - UK: 8 - US: 4. So South Africa was the swingingest country!

And again, British radio morons at first didn’t want to play it, for it was too long, just like they treated Procol Harum’s "A Salty Dog". There must be a medical explanation for that attitude...

SULTANS OF SWING
(Mark Knopfler)

You get a shiver in the dark, it’s rainin’ in the park but meantime
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie double four time
You feel alright when you hear the music ring

And now you step inside but you don’t see too many faces
Comin’ in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places, but the horns, they’re blowing that sound
Way on down south, way on down south in London town

You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords
But it’s strictly rhythm he doesn’t wanna make it cry or sing
it’s an old guitar is all he can afford, when he gets up under the lights to play his thing

And Harry doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene
He’s got a daytime job, he’s doin’ alright
He can play the honky tonk like anything, savin’ it up for Friday night
With the Sultans... with the Sultans of Swing

And a crowd of young boys, they’re foolin’ around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
They don’t give a damn about any trumpet playin’ band, it ain’t what they call rock and roll
And the Sultans... yeah the Sultans played Creole... Creole

And then the man, he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings:
