  • Really Good.

    By Quicksilver1795
  • Nice guitars!

    By ri13chi
    Sultans Of Swing (Alchemy Live) is perhaps the best version, but all jam! Dire Straits music ranges from relaxing to highly energetic. The difficulty of including all the songs which could have been in this collection is evident; the result was still positive!
  • Great, But...

    By Buck456
    Look, I know that industrial disease may not be the best song in the world, but it deserves a place here. Also Water of Love definately needs to be on here. That is an underplayed song, but it is great.
  • Twisting By The Pool

    By Pete3432692384
    Dire Straits fun single before they went commercial with Brothers In Arms-- I played this on my college station in Indiana in '84. A bit of 80s charm the extended play single. Song doesnt try to do anything - no huge solos- just a fun- European rock song. They must have had a lot of dances by swimming pools in England (see Pete Townshen's "Deep End")
  • Curious absences

    By NaLuv
    How could any "best of" collection omit "Industrial Disease" from Love Over Gold? What a fun song!
  • classic

    By buffben
    A classic band with all of their best music in one album. It can't get any better!
  • Classics Never Go Out Of Style

    By lilsmartrat7
    Dire Straits have the best of the best, from the sad, lonely, depressing stories to the upbeat riffs and walking baselines. The classics never truely go out of style do they? Dire Staits cover any emotion a person could be looking for. Light and romantic (Romeo and Juliet), mysterious (Private Investigations), or the bright and cheery music that just makes you want to dance! (Twisting by the Pool, Lady Writer, Walk of Life). Dire Straits had it right... Two thumbs way up!

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
