Heavy Fuel -- Dire Straits

I have a soft spot for this song. Like "Deacon Blues" before it, it's so over-the-top on favoring the hard drinking and living lifestyle of rock and roll, it has to be satirical. Several people have criticised it as derivative of Money for Nothing, but I'm not going to go down that path.

Any day hearing Mark Knoffler singing and playing the guitar is a good day. Seeing Randy Quaid pre-breakdown is fun too (not enough to qualify for our "Better in Video" Saturdays, but close...).
