Music From My Heart – Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits.

It was 38 years ago this month, that the British band Dire Straits began recording their first ever album.  It was a self titled record which contained the song I have chosen to share with you, Sultans of Swing.  It was the signature wailing guitar solo that I fell in love with all those years ago.  The minute I hear the opening chords I am immediately transported to a party on the beautiful Motuihe Island for my graduation from Teachers College.  Dire Straits produced many other classic songs that I love to this day – most notably the haunting Brothers in Arms.  But it was the party song Sultans of Swing  that began it all for me!

So I wish Dire Straits a very happy 38th Anniversary!
