Sultans of Swing은 영국의 록밴드 Dire Straits 의
노래이며,신문사 기자로 활약했던 Mark Knopfler가
작곡하였고, 기타와 보컬을 담당, 베이스기타의
John lllsley, 드럼의 Pick Withers, 마크노플러의
남동생 David Knopfler가 리듬기타를 맡은 4명으로
구성하고, 1978년에 발매되고,
1979년에 영국과 미국에서 히트되었다.
그들의 첫번째 히트 곡이며, Sultan이라는 말은 이슬람에서
최고의 권위자를 말하는데 음악적으로 표현한 것이다.

음악팬들은 다이어 스트레이츠하면 항상 마크 노플러의
기타연주를 떠올린다. 드라이브를 걸지않은,영롱한 클린 톤
기타와 일렉트릭 기타를 피크 없이 연주하는 핑거링은
매우 다이내믹하면서도 쉽게 가슴을 파고들며 수많은
영혼을 울리며 다이어 스트레이츠를
세계적인 록그룹으로 올려놨다.
밴드가 블루스, 컨트리, 재즈, 록커빌리 등
폭넓은 음악 장르를 수용하면서도
심금을 울리는 아름다운 멜로디 Sultans of swing’,
‘Why worry’,‘So far away’, ‘Walk of life’ 등의 주옥같은
보석들이 잘 말해주고 있다.
음악적으로 인정받고, 상업적으로도 역사상 가장 성공한 밴드중
하나로 이들은 세계 최고의 베스트 셀링 뮤직 아티스트들 중
하나로 1억2천만장이상의 앨범을 판매했다.
3번의 BRIT Award, 4번의 그래미상,
2번의 MTV video music Award등을 수상했다.

You get a shiver in the dark,
It’s raining in the park, but meantime:
South of the river, you stop and you hold everything.
A band is blowin’ Dixie, double-four time.

You feel alright when you hear that music play.
you step inside, but you don’t see too many faces.
Comin’ in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down.
Competition in other places…

But the horns, they blowin’ that sound.
Way on down south,
Way on down south, London-town
Check out Guitar George, he knows all the chords.

But it’s strictly rhythm; he doesn’t want to make it cry or sing.
If any old guitar is all he can afford,
hen he gets up under the lights to play his thing.
And Harry doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene.

He’s got a daytime job, he’s doing alright.
He can play the honky tonk like anything,
Savin’ it up for Friday night.
With the Sultans,

With the Sultans of Swing
And a crowd of young boys, they’re fooling around in the corner,
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles.
The don’t give a damn about any trumpet playing band.

It ain’t what they call rock and roll.
And the Sultans,
es the Sultans play Creole.
And then the man, he steps right up to the microphone.

And says at last, just as the time bell rings, \»
Goodnight, now it’s time to go home.\»
And he makes it fast, with one more thing:\»
We’re the Sultans, \»
We are the Sultans of Swing.\»

Sultans Of Swing (Dire Straits); drum cover by Sina

For this drum cover I played along to a drumless track of the original studio version but I like the energetic Alchemy Live version better. So this is my tribute to Terry Williams, the great Dire Straits drummer throughout the 80s, I’m a fan! However, I did not cover his Live drum part note for note but I played ‘in the style of’ Terry Williams.

This performance is available on iTunes, recorded with the Tribute Band ‘Dire Straits UK’: You can check out the full Band Cover right here: YouTube
