Classic Rock Music Lovers: Mark Knopfler : Tracker : Broken Bones

British singer, songwriter and genius guitarist extraordinaire Mark Knopfler released his 8th solo album “Tracker”  in 2015, and one of the tracks, the song “Broken Bones” proves that if folks start saying he’s “over the hill”, loyal fans will respond back:  Hey Mark! Are you going over the hill??!!  We’re coming with you!!

Some Mondays you start the week with enthusiasm and energy, ready to overcome the world. Then there are those kinds of Mondays aptly described in lyrics sung by the late Karen Carpenter – they “always get you down”. If you’re lucky, a radio station will play exactly the right song to suit your mood. One morning I heard an awesome song on a radio station. It immediately took me back to the days of Bob Dylan, et al.  So I knew the person singing it must have come from that generation. Recognized the voice but could not remember the name of the artist. Googled it!

The name of the song is “Broken Bones” performed by none other than Mark Knopfler. Turns out it’s a track on his album “Tracker”. It was a perfect pick to begin my Moody Monday. This album is available for your listening pleasure in a variety of formats – MP3, audio CD and (believe it or not!) … vinyl!

Mark Knopfler is alive and well, not quite over the hill and still going places!  Check his schedule.
