Love Over Gold by Dire Straits
Released: Jul 2005
Label: Atlantic Records/Atg
This is Mark Knopfler's version of Springsteen's "Darkness At the Edge of Town" but he stretches out the thematically bleak songs with extended instrumental solos. This was huge in the U.K., where it was the rare mainstream rock album – like Pink Floyd's Final Cut -- that echoed the British public's confusion at Thatcher's economic policies.
