Dire Straits is great for catchy guitar riffs but this one is probably the most recognizable, at least to me. This riff as a favorite probably has more to do with the memory attached to the riff than the riff its self. When this song was first released, my older brother use to, for lack of better term, mouth guitar, it all the time. Every time I hear the song I go back to being a kid and hearing my brother sing this riff and think about how he was the coolest big brother in the world. He still is the coolest big brother in the world.
