Romeo and Juliet (Dire Straits)

The first time I ever heard of Mark Knopfler was in the study hall of Hebron Yeshiva. I had just started playing violin again, and a friend of mine had just started playing guitar. He asked in Hebrew, Shamata al Knopfler? (Have you heard of Knopfler?) Back in the dorms, he popped a cassette in the tape deck and I listened for the first time to Romeo and Juliet. I still think it's one of the best ever written.
