i cried.... but maybe i'm just a pussy... but what a track is this. I love the guitar, i love the intro and Mark's singing is powerful. Guitarless outro maybe less exciting.. But i love it

Like this one a lot.  Basically a reworking of Terminal of Tribute To.

I always felt that "Back on the dance floor" was remake of TOTT. Is this song similar to both of these melodically?

Little bit to Terminal perhaps.. but far better imo.. living end (bonus track) is similar to dancefloor

I never really thought so.  It was actually another fan who suggested TOTT and now I hear it it's so obvious.  I knew it reminded me of something and I thought So Far from the Clyde but when TOTT was suggested that's all I can hear.  It's very obvious.

The Living End has exactly the same beat as El Macho minus the "horns."

I really can't believe that he include the lines telling the wood of his guitar comes from Tunnel 13, LOL

I can't understand the excitement about Tunnel 13 to be honest. It's a good song but nothing special in my book. I like that he lists the names of the victims in the lyrics. The names of the robbers are well known. MK gives sort of justice to the killed people in mentioning their names. This is the song on the album that reminds of Dire Straits the most and that is probably the reason so many people love it, but for example, So Far From The Clyde is much better.

I prefer This One's Not Going To End Well over Tunnel 13 every day. It has such a nice melody, great lyrics, is in the same area as Pale Imitation. And it fits much better to 74y old MK.

Just my two cents of course.

I am in love with this track since the first minute. Just listened in the car on high volume. My favourite of the album. I like that it starts slow, then swells, beautiful storytelling, the band joins (wow).. then guitarssss followed by the quiet middle part and then again boooom with cool guitar solo. Classic Knopfler.

I like this one more than So Far from the Clyde. This one has more punch and engergy. SFFTC is too slow imo..

Swells = i mean suspension building... or song building... first the intro with the lady voices... than MK singing alone... the bands kicks in at 00.57.. awesome first minute.

Guitar at 1.27 is freaking nice... And from 3.28 on it's even nicer.. Cool stuff around 4.04...

Anyway... if you don't like that, i'm sorry  ;D I think it's fantastic.

Oh it's a ok song. I did not say that I don't like it. Isn't it nice that this album has to offer something for everyone it seems?

I agree that the Lady's vocals intro is very nice, very unusual.
