  • Private Investigations

    By Old Texan
    I’m a 65 yr. old music lover. I tap my toes off listening to Walk of Life :-)
  • So good it gives chills

    By Wolverineapps
    Money For Nothing is such a good song it gives me the chills every time I listen to it.
  • Top Ten Records of all Time

    By Beeb's
    This has to be one of the top ten albums of all time. Can’t get better songs than these! Mark is a genius! Not a bad song to be had!
  • God yes.

    By Ra fan4 life
    Walk of Life, Money for Nothing, and Sultans of Swing. Three of my favorite Dire Straits songs? I would seriously pay album price for those three songs... but to get the best of Dire Straits and (mostly) Mark Knopfler, just made my day.
  • Good Album

    By Awesome687522845
    Good stuff worth the buy
  • Excellent !!

    By Gliding2
    Only thing I would like to see on this is a couple songs from Dire Straits and Communique!
  • Money for nothing

    By RagingAndRanting
    It is not loud enough. This song needs to be louder. Save your money.
  • J-mon5000

    By Cakeman1
    I love the album, but I only like a few of the songs. P.S. I wanted to make it 4.5
  • Memories

    By Badsnacker
    Back when "Brothers In Arms" came out I was in a bad place. This song and a lot others by Dire Straits brought be back. "Money For Nothing" and "Tunnel of Love" are also amoungst my favorites. This "The Best of" is truely "The Best of"
  • Missing too many Dire Straits songs

    By lie2me
    Never was able to follow Mark during his solo career when I got older. I find the songs from his solo career displacing what I think were classic Dire Straits songs. Thus, I can't rate this compilation of songs on this album/CD/MP3 as high as others. I think it is better to pick up the Dire Straits CDs individually.

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.
