I have the melody of this song stuck in my head. What a wonderful melodies and again so personal lyrics...

Agree with these sentiments.  Beautiful little solo too.

To me it sounds very personal, very intimate and a bit sad. But a bit spooky somehow at the same time.

In fact, the last song Down The Road Wherever. Wonderful.

The solo is very Mr Marvin to me...

The solo is not any "little solo" or "small guitar break", no.

This solo is just pure Knopfler essence selected, manufactured and crafthanded with love, talent, passion and good taste. Nothing more.

I must recognise that nowadays, i didn´t expected that still were something left fromthe magic that MK used in 1979. Surprising and very pleasing.
And we have just one world...

Does anybody else besides me notice that the beginning of the song sounds like River of Grog?

It's truly amazing how MK sneaks in pieces from other songs, and they blend in so well. I guess after writing hundreds of songs, there are bound to be repeats since there are only a set number of notes to work with!

The beginning and end remind me of "The Ghost Of Faffner Hall"

The best of all the "DTRW" songs. One of his best songs ever, actually. Sentimental and touching...

I'd listened to this for the first time at night, while walking by a place where I spent a lot of time as a child. In instant all-time favourite for me, just wonderful.

Mark always had good b-sides, but this collection must be his best overall. Impressed.

Thanks for making and sharing this video to us, shangri la 1.  There must have been a lot of efforts putting in this video.  One of the best fan made music video of DS/MK I have ever seen.  Much appreciated!!!   :clap :clap :clap

Absolutely, there is lots of melancholy in this song, the man can write songs that will touch the heart and the soul, who wouldn’t feel the same in front of his childhood home, the song has something magical.
If I realised that the chances were slim,
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

Thank-you Allen. Pleased that you like it. I find making these depictions of my own interpretation of Mark’s classic “stories”, very therapeutic. As you know I have chronic health problems which have played a huge part in my quality of life over the last 30-years.

Another motivation for me is to make use of You Tube’s huge ability to reach, especially  Gen Z and Millennial’s so as to introduce real music to some of them. Then, maybe many of them will, hopefully carry it forward to future generations.

I'm hoping the other 2 I have completed so far, will be cleared by the record company copyright scrutineers soon.

Great video.  I recognise some shots from Scotstoun and Bearsden there.   :clap
