Since today is Mark Knopfler's birthday, this morning I started a playlist containing all his work from Dire Straits onward. (Currently on Live Aid version of "Sultans Of Swing".) So what are your favorites from Mark? 1. Vote for your favorite Dire Straits and solo studio albums in the poll. Vote for as many as you wish. 2. What are your favorite songs from these albums? A top five or top ten? Whatever you please. 3. What are your favorites among Mark's "side projects" - soundtracks, live albums, EPs, collaborations, productions, etc.? 4. Have you ever seen Mark play live? Any favorite memories?
