Weekend Music Feature: Dire Straits “Walk of Life” Live in London

I was at a club earlier this week and they were playing music videos on the big screen. The DJ played this song that almost everyone recognizes from the beginning notes. However; I had never heard THIS version of Walk of Life by Dire Straits. It is off of their 1993 DVD “On the Night” filmed live in London.

What makes this version of the song uniquely different is the prominently featured pedal steel guitar and the amazing energy from the crowd. Country Music fans who are sick of the pop / hip-hop themed “Bro-Country” that is polluting the air waves these days will particularly enjoy this performance.  As one person commented on YouTube:


How awesome it would be to perform for all those people.  Rock Star over movie star any day of the week & twice Sunday for me.

I couldn’t have said it any better myself. We hope you enjoy this week’s “Weekend Music Feature” Dire Straits , “Walk of Life”- Editor
