Mark Knopfler’s guitar tone changed my life. I’m not even exaggerating, holy shit, it’s amazing. From about the 0:40 mark to the end, Knopfler’s guitar is as soft as possible, but still sounds so biting and close, I don’t know how he does it. Moving past the lead guitar, every element of this song sounds so well thought out and coordinated. Despite the detailed and specific arrangement, BIA remains full of every kind of sadness imaginable. Give yourself the time to fully appreciate the song if you haven’t already heard it, I can’t stress the power of this song enough. Enjoy!
