Day 112: “Money For Nothing” – Dire Straits

!!!ITALIANO!!!

This is the first videoclip MTV ever launched in Europe. The track is very famous: Money For Nothing, from the album Brothers In Arms, surely the record by the Straits which sold more. The great guitar riff, Sting‘s backing vocals, the 80’s style arrangement and the video itself make a masterpiece out of this song, and it is always a pleasure to listen to it.

During their long 1985 tour,  Mark Knopfler and the rest of the band could perform the song live with Sting, like in the studio version, at Live Aid in London.

Lyrics

Now look at them yo-yos thats the way you do it
You play the guitar on the mtv
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Money for nothin and chicks for free
Now that aint workin thats the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys aint dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour tvs

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy thats his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot hes a millionaire

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchens deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour tvs

I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it stickin in the camera
Man we could have some fun
And hes up there, whats that? hawaiian noises?
Bangin on the bongoes like a chimpanzee
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Get your money for nothin get your chicks for free

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour tvs, lord

Now that aint workin thats the way you do it
You play the guitar on the mtv
That aint workin thats the way you do it
Money for nothin and your chicks for free
Money for nothin and chicks for free
