The new songs - A hypothesis
« on: February 15, 2022, 02:35:01 pm »
Hello to all. :wave
Hmm, what do you expect in case of the new recorded material by MK and the boys.?? 8)

To me personally it will be cool to have an album with a suitable mixture of different musical-styles and arrangements. I love some ballads, with little folk or country-flavour, but also some more bluesy or rock-based tunes. That will be great for me. ;)
What do you think about ? What are your personal song-favourites or wishes in case of composition and musical-style ?

After Hot Dog and My Bacon Roll, one can only hope for another food song! In all seriousness, though, given his current guitar skills, I hope for harmonically interesting songs as I won't expect too much from his soloing efforts. Soundwise I hope for something radically different than DTRW. It's never going to happen, but I would be so happy if Chuck mixed the whole thing.

Hi TheTimeWasWrong. Thanks a lot for your opinion for the new album.
I hope it will go into a more bluesy or rock-n-roll direction, but a few folk-based tunes are also accepted and pretty cool.

I guess the new record will have a song about an old dog on a boat eating saussages but in fact it will be about the pandemic.
They will be something about Bojo or politics disguised as the story of a mean cowboy. 
Maybe a song about getting old
Probably something about his dire straits days because he may not like to look into his back catalogue but he sure does like to look into the past.
A song about an obscure writer or poet.
Probably something about the art scene or the music business but artfully told
One or two portrait songs
maybe one about Elvis or Dylan - it's becoming recurrent for the latter

And we will love them or learn to do so in a matter of days. I can't wait!

I'm counting on something mystical like Before gas And TV or Drover's Road. Songs about the soul and the human condition.

Two songs I would put in any Knopfler best of if he did one.

I would be fine with anything, whether folk, blues, rock, country etc. as long as he leaves out the brass. Just some saxophone is ok. ;)

Leaving out the Brass would be good for me, a return to the Golden Heart style is what I would love.
Please check out my MK/DS forum:

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

I think we'd have known by now.  Looks like pedal steel is the new inclusion this time which probably means country to me, which is good as far as I'm concerned.

Think: Setting Me Up, When It Comes to You, How Long, Are We In Trouble Now...  :P

Not to mention a song about a boxer.

It's funny when I read that the fact there is a steel player is going to be country.

Many of MK records have pedal steel and are not country at all. Privateering has pedal steel on many songs and none of them are country!
You might get lucky, now and then

Maybe because the pedal steel guitar sounds subtle on the Privateering album. Also on other albums. However, Golden Heart is a different level and pedal steel guitar is often in the foreground.

Paul Franklin is on STP, RPD and Privateering, if I recall well, and he is not doing any country think of them, just creating atmospheric sounds and some nice solos and touches here and there.

I think this is why MK wants that instrument on his records.
