Private Dancer, if it were played by Dire Straits
« on: November 20, 2021, 10:47:44 pm »


So this one was a bit of a challenge because it was actually written by MK, but never released.
There's a couple of details about the track and what I did with it in the description if you're interested, but feel free to ask about more.
Let me know what you think of it! Or what you would've done differently.

Thanks!

Saw it before you posted it here! Very good, as always. I think this song was so close to Love Over Gold, especially in the chorus, and it was so strange to sing it from a man's perspective that Mark ditched it. But the song was very good, can't expect anything else from MK though!

Thank you! Yeah, I couldn't leave the lyrics unaltered. There's just something very wrong about imagining MK as a private dancer, hahah. So I did it as if he was singing about one, instead of as one.

Tina has said she thought Mark's version of this is beautiful. I am sure Mark's solo is better than the Jeff Beck one too. I would like to hear your version of Moonlight Shadow if it were played by Dire Straits.

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.
