Time To Get Manly 10: Dire Straits - Dire Straits

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Dire Straits - Dire Straits

This record is manly because your dad owns it. Even if you also love it, do yourself a favor and don't bother to play it around your girlfriend or (worse) try to convince her that "Sultans Of Swing" is a better song than that "Money For Nothing" (even though it is). It also won't do you any favors if you concede that "Money For Nothing" is great, but that the eight minute-plus album version is "even more awesome." Unless your plan is to not get laid that night. Then go ahead and do these things.
