It should be about midnight in England now I think, so it's August 12th then  :)

Happy 69th Birthday, Mark

Great idea! I can't pick just one but I'll go find the ones I most treasure (at least at this point in my quest of discovering the brilliance of Mark Knopfler) :) I think I'll just imbed the first two and provide the link to the rest

(the princess bride soundtrack is where I first saw his name, and I think what later made me start looking for some of his music)

(my favorite song, and the one that finally started me trying to find and listen everything I could by Mark, which has been wonderful! I think it might have been this version. This is the song that made me really want to play guitar, which I've not been doing very long now and am terrible at but I am really enjoying :) )

{https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1Wp2ASqyxI} (I literally cried tears of awe when I heard the Telegraph Road version on Alchemy.)

{https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmAKqEUVmXk} (I absolutely love the tunnel of love solo, and this one's brilliant. The TOL end solo is the second Knopfler song that helped me decide to try guitar)

{https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJwJ11-pmxg} (I'm pretty sure this is the first music by Mark that I heard after princess bride. I just typed in 'best guitar solos' one day and this came up)

{https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCs2R704Q7g} (Heart of Oak is my favorite solo track right now, at least on Tracker)

"Well he's a big star now
But I've been a fan of his for years
The way he sings and plays guitar
Still brings me to tears...

Thank you, in the name of the man (as long as he's not going to read it...)
You might get lucky, now and then
