I know there are a gazillion music threads on here, but I'm sleeping with (one of) the boss(es) so you can all get stuffed.
I recently purchased Alchemy, the first live album by the Dire Straits, and now I want to be Mark Knopfler when I grow up. My dad used to be quite the Straits fan, so I've been subjected to them all my life. They were part of many a holiday mix tape (I feel old).
Which bands are you happy to listen to voluntarily after having been exposed during your innocent years?
If you had to nominate one song and one album that you'd like to thank your dad for, which would it be?
Song: Simple Minds' Mandela Day
Album: Dire Straits' Money for Nothing
Honourable mentions: Supertramp, Pink Floyd, and I will never tire of the Scorpions' Wind of Change. I'm pretty sure I sang along to that when I was four in my own little make believe English.
