Good song.
***
I remember loving this song as a kid. Looking back now, it's probably because of the Thunderbirds filmclip that made me love the song, cause to be honest it does drag on quite a bit.
****
Decent song.
******
Great song from On Every Street.
*****
Awesome track.
*****
Dire Straits are known for their long songs. This one at first appears to stick to a normal length, but after the last chorus it becomes apparent this isn't gonna finish quickly. And I don't mind a bit, taking in the instrumental brilliance.
