Today listening this song while driving I started laughing as I pictured myself MK having difficulties to sleep, going to his kitchen for a tea, looking at the window and thinking "damm, there is nothing but rain outside, hey, I got an idea for a song!"

Another great song. Guitar solo is  very cool. Maybe not too challenging technically (what do I know) but very effective and  just coooool... I love his voice on this one.

I don't want no sugar in it, thank you very much!

This is the most DS sounding track to my ears - late DS, but this could fit well on OES, perhaps Love Over Gold too. Can imagine this played live on the OES tour too. Really great song. 4 of the 5 bonus songs are superb.

It reminds me a bit to Planet of New Orleans. I think it would been have great live

I'm beginning to like this much more now - it's definitely a grower!

Loved this song from the first time I've listened to it. Mark"s wonderful voice and his guitar playing gives me chilles all over. What a cool song. He still can Dire Straits.  ;)

Yes! I love this song.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

Fully agree.

The scene and some parts of the song breathes New Orleans.

Musically it's a hybrid between PONO and Fade to black.
