The adlib on the outro reminds me of MK when he adds a few riffs of other musicians during TOL played live.
Also shows that the Beatles used the same 🎸🎶 tuning on Norwegian Wood as NY used on Cinnamon Girl - drop D. And I can't play 🎸 to save myself.
SL 1

dropped D is also used on "Harvest Moon". We play it in our acoustic duo

"Money for Nothing was formed in 2000 as a tribute to one of the world’s premier rock bands – Dire Straits."

Never heard of them before so far.

Most problably I am not a REAL fan of Dire Straits  :smack

Has anyone heard the band 'Money for Nothing' before? They proclaim that they are supposedly Europe's No.1 DS tribute band..

I'm very sceptical about DS/MK tribute bands having witnessed a few before that were really 'Dire'!

Was the sewing machine at the beginning of the thread (no pun intended) also part of DS?
I hate those needle-ss spam posts.

I’ll have to give Nord a try. Is it available as mobile app also? Would love to be able to watch the series from US but haven’t really done much VPN exploring…

By the way, I just realized that if you assume that the second verse is a different character talking, the whole thing could make more sense ... Still in  :hmm mode, though.

I realise I wasn't very clear on that point.
The first part is clearly Mr. Strong Man talking, in the second it could be a general use of "you" in the sense of "one", so it would be gradually dawning on him that he would also be annihilated in the end. Or it's someone else talking to him, as a word of warning. That makes more sense, I believe.

In any case, I'm sure that all those images (the palace, the golden chair) were chosen on purpose and that, together, they all point to one specific target. I wish we knew when the song was written, then we would also know who the "pawn" was that he has "sacrificed":

Yes, what you're saying makes perfect sense. My guess for the pawn would be Mr. Prigozhin.

That was my idea, too. And now we can speculate about who the knights are that "have been pitching" the opponent to Mr. Strong Man's advantage, meaning they are working for him?
